October Recap and November News.
We welcomed many changes in October, from warm weather to cooler temperatures to exciting adventures in the classroom. The classroom’s monthly theme was Five Senses and Feelings. The children were involved in many activities that made them use their five senses, like smelling a pumpkin to feeling the slimy inside. The children read the months book, We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt, by Steve Metzger. The children were able to learn more about autumn, and they also discussed fire safety.
For our Enrichment program, the children were introduced to the music of Camille Saint- Saens and the fantastic art of Picasso. In cooking, the children were able to create some fun fall recipes, and for computers, the children continued their learning through ABCmouse. Lastly, for Spanish, they reviewed the words they had learned and added some Halloween words.
To end the month, we had a blast at our Halloween party! The children had lots of fun and ate lots of delicious treats with their classmates. Thank you to all the families who helped with providing snacks and goodies.
The theme for November is Harvest and Healthy Bodies. They will discuss and learn all about the United States, Veterans Day as well as Thanksgiving. The book of the month is Fill a Bucket by Carol McCloud and Katherine Martin. This month we have lots of fun-filled activities for the children, and also, we will be celebrating our annual Harvest Feast.
Some important dates to remember for November are:
November 3rd – 4th Parent-Teacher conferences (we will be closing at 3 pm for both days)
November 11th – School Closed for Veterans Day
November 24th – Harvest Feast (child-only event)
November 25th – 26th – School Closed for Thanksgiving Break
We will be having our See’s Candy Fundraiser all month long. All orders will arrive before our Winter Break, they make great Christmas stuffers! We are very thankful for having such amazing families, and we truly do appreciate everything you all do!
