For Polar Bear's Snack:  Bring Goldfish crackers (any flavor or color)

*All items are optional but are intentionally planned to support learning by using all of our 5 senses in the classroom!

*PLEASE NOTE:  If there are just 1 or 2 learners, I usually end class a little early as my Preschool Explorer classes are intended for 3 learners which typically takes the full 45 minutes whereas just 1 or 2 learners typically do not require the full time of class.  (You can see this policy on my profile page as wellhttps://outschool.com/teachers/Nicole-Cloutier-2020?usid=shKLrMQj&signup=true&authTrigger=follow_teacher&follow=true&utm_campaign=share_leader_link)

*Please CHECK YOUR EMAIL THE NIGHT BEFORE THE CLASS to see if this is the case for this class.  I will always let you know if it is so that you will have a chance to transfer your learner to another section that has more learners if you prefer!

Thank You! See you soon!
