I hope you all enjoyed the three day weekend! I feel like I was able to get a lot accomplished around my house and boy it needed it! Well the Fall weather is here which means cooler mornings. We go outside (air quality permitting) at 8:15 and it's been pretty chilly! I recommend sending a sweater, light jacket or sweatshirt to school with your child and please label everything with your child's name as there are many duplicates. It's also pretty wet on the playground in the mornings so please check your child's extra clothes and make sure they have cooler weather clothes instead of a pair of shorts...thank you.
This week in Big Day for Pre-K we are going back to cover theme #3 week #2...People We Meet. We'll continue learning about the Rosary and include the Rosary prayers in our morning prayers...The Lord's Prayer, The Hail Mary Prayer and the Glory Be Prayer. I had ordered a Rosary for each child in the classroom and they finally came in. I am going to ask Mrs. Mary how I could go about getting them blessed before the children take them home.
The letters K-O will be introduced as well as The Nursery Rhyme Jack Be Nimble where the children will make candlesticks to jump over. Great for large motor skills! In math the focus will be...longer/shorter
and in our Second Step Social/Emotional curriculum we'll talk about same or different feelings.
10-19 - Progress Reports go home.
10/27 - 10/29 - School pictures...envelopes will be sent out
10/29 - 10/30 - Halloween special treat
I have a Halloween sign up sheet posted on the table if you would like to contribute to our special snack on either of these two days. Again, the children will be making Trick Or Treat Bags so if your child would like to bring a store bought item to help fill up the bags it would be greatly appreciated!
Many blessing to you all,
