We have just finished up our theme about My Five Senses. We had a lot of fun tasting apples, and feeling different textures on our sensory tray. We used our nose to smell fun play dough, one week it was blue raspberry and then it was apple pie play dough. We also had fun in our 'Apple Orchard' play house. I introduced the class to a light table where they could see different colored stones as the light shined up through them. Last week we had a lot of fun with a few books by the author Herve Tullet one was called PRESS HERE and the other was called MIX IT UP. Both were great books and the children had a lot of fun with dots and mixing colors.
Our new theme is 'My Family, My Community.' This week we will focus on families, and the Holy Family. We will also be learning about St. Francis. There will be a school mass on Friday and blessing of the animals. All are welcome to join and accompany your pet to be blessed. Preschool will not be able to attend as a class as it will be going on during our lunch time.
October is the month of the Rosary. We are learning about the rosary and later in the month our class will create a large chalk rosary in the back circle with our 5th grade reading buddies. The entire school will pray the rosary in the back of the school circle.
October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month and our school store will be selling a lot of pink OLM things to support breast cancer awareness. You will be seeing a lot of pink around the school.
Our Alpha friend is Iggy Iguana Ii this week. We will be finishing up our last show and tell on Tuesday. thank you all so much for doing the Paw Print project. The children have been doing an amazing job at talking about themselves.
Parent Teacher conferences will take place on Wednesday, 10/19 and Thursday, 10/20. A sign up is located in the class room. I look forward to meeting with each of you. There is also a sign up for the Halloween Carnival. The preschool is always in charge of the cake walk. We will need many volunteers to work our booth, set up/take down and donate baked goodies. There will be a room parent meeting on Tuesday at 6:30 to discuss.
