September Recap and October 2021 News.
In September, we welcomed change with open arms, from the weather to the classrooms. We welcomed many new friends and families to our school and started a brand-new school year. The classes took the time to get to know each other with the month’s theme All About Me. The children were so happy to be able to share their family photos with the classroom and share little things that make them unique. We also introduced the 7 continents, the children explored the continent map and learned the continents song. The classrooms read the book of the month The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn and talked about the importance of helping one another.
Lastly, we welcomed back our enrichment programs and the kids loved doing something different every day. They created a self-portrait of themselves using graham crackers, pretzels, and M&Ms in cooking class, did some fun rock painting to decorate our gardens in art class. In Spanish, they learned how to great one another and the basics of school supplies. For music, they had so much fun learning about Orchestra music, and even practiced being conductors. For computer class, they began their journey on ABCMouse.com.
Our teachers worked extremely hard on putting together their Back-to-School Night presentations after we unfortunately had to move from an in-person event to a virtual one. We also enjoyed out first picture day of the school year. We enjoyed seeing all the children looking so dapper!
In October, we are excited to transition into the fall season! The classes will be learning about The Five Sense and Feelings. Each week is dedicated to a different sense and feeling. We want to use these lessons to ensure that the children are more open and able to communicate what they are feeling. The classes will also learn about their first continent North America. They will talk all about its lakes, animals, flags, plants, and culture. The book of the month is Going on a Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger. The children are also very excited to discuss all things Halloween! The classes will talk about spiderwebs and jack-o-lanterns and even carve a pumpkin!
We will be hosting our first Book Fair of the school year during the week of the 25th – 29th. We are also very excited to bring back our Halloween Party on October 29th.
