This week we began our Pumpkin Unit in Science complete with Pumpkin journals. These journals will allow the children to show what they know and learn throughout the unit. Kaileigh’s mom sent in a small pumpkin for each child, which we will do something with before the end of October. Thank you Kaileigh’s mom!
As we are now into school about six weeks, the class has become more comfortable with one another, which can lead to new life lessons about how to get along. We reviewed “Words are Not for Hurting” yesterday when there was some exclusion from playing at morning recess. Please remind (and model) for your child at home about kind ways to ask for things and being a good friend. We all need practice from time to time…
Here’s what we are learning this week!
- Good writers need to think of ideas
- Fundations Unit 1 Week 5 Aa and Gg
- What makes up a sentence?
- Thematic literature
- Beginning Unit 3
- Numbers and what they stand for
- number sequence
- Life Cycle of a Pumpkin!
- Expected and unexpected behaviors
- Modeling kind words and actions
Now that the weather is getting cooler (maybe?) please send your child in appropriate clothing (coat, hat, gloves.) Thank you!
Please only put WATER in your child’s WATER BOTTLE!! We’ve had a few sticky situations recently due to juice in water bottles. Thank you!!!
