WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH?
What a difference a month makes. Your little ones are doing great! We are so proud of what they have already accomplished so far. This month is going to be a very exciting one in our class. We are looking forward to fall finally making an appearance! Cooler air and the leaves are changing color. We will begin October by talking about owls. Singing songs, reading books and making owl biscuits! The children will paint bats using marbles. We will make delicious bat cookies. Then onto making ghosts. Believe it or not, the children will use their feet to paint the ghosts! And of course, they will enjoy their Trick or Treat bags and witches’ hats made from Crescent Rolls. Our class mom will contact you to send in some goodies for our Halloween bags and give more details about the party/parade.
Mrs. Bosher & Mrs. Trivedi had so much fun talking about how to be a good friend with your children in September. Last week we started a unit on fall that will include apples, leaves, pumpkins and even a cooking activity or two. At the end of the month we will start working on some Spooktacular decorations for our classroom Halloween Party!
October finds Mrs. Pullias’ class off to a great start as we learn more about Safety, Police Officers and
Firefighters. We will then “jump” into Fall and explore the wonderful changes that occur this beautiful season. Our Amazing Alphabet Adventure is moving right along as we learn about the letters in our names and our friends’ names. We will make a list of vocabulary words to go along with our Safety and Fall themes.
As the month comes to an end, we will get ready for our “SPOOKTACULAR” Halloween Parade and Party on October 31st. Our room moms will contact you with more information. We are having so much fun in our new classrooms and enjoying every minute with your children. Happy fall everyone!
Lots of friends are staying for lunch! We welcome more to join us and/or stay until 3:00p.m.! This month, the children will embrace the season of FALL. We will talk about colors, the changes in the trees and the clothes we are wearing. We will emphasize the importance of “looking around” during this season to see all of its beauty. And of course, as October comes to an end, we will get into the holiday of Boo, Whoooo and Meow, as we focus on Halloween.
Thank you for your support as your children have adjusted to their new routine. I did want to mention a few items about Halloween. Each is just discovering who he/she is and now we want them to dress up as someone or something else. In each of the classes, we will continue to emphasize that Halloween is just PRETEND. If your child wants to dress up, that is just fine and if not, that is fine as well. Please send in a change of clothes that day as most of the children shed their costumes within an hour.
As the weather starts to get colder, please send in a new change of clothing (winter) to keep in your child’s cubby. FALL is really here and it feels wonderful!
