In addition to the “All About Me” topic of study we will begin our “Fall Weather” topic of study starting next week. We will be studying apples, pumpkins, gourds, and other Fall nature topics. Please be sure to check our our wish lists on the doors. We will be asking for a variety of apples and gourds for our science area.
We have also begun our Star Student of the Week. Each week a different child will be given the backpack and have the opportunity to be the Star Student of the Week.
We will begin our Lending Library this Wednesday. Please remember to send your child’s library book back on Tuesday’s in the blue or yellow Library Bag. Please remember that children may choose to check out the same book over and over again….this is perfectly natural and should be supported. Children feel successful when they can “read” or retell the story and may want to read and reread the same story over and over. Please simply bare with the repeated readings and just remember that your child is gaining self confidence and a love for reading when reading the stories.
OPEN HOUSE: I will be conducting my Open House this Wednesday from 5:15-6:00 in the classroom. Please try to attend without children, it is easier to attend and ask questions without the distraction of the students.
Please be sure to dress your child for the fall weather and be sure to send a light sweater or jacket with your child to school as the weather becomes cooler. Some children become chilly when we are outside- especially the girls that wear dresses or skirts without thick leggings or pants underneath.
Please do not allow your child to bring toys from home to school. This creates problems in the classroom and toys may be lost at school.
Dates to Remember:
International Bike or Walk to School Day Wednesday, October 8th – (check your child’s mailbox for more information)- I would suggest that you walk/bike with your child on that day. Preschoolers need more supervision than the older children.
No School- Monday, October 13th –Columbus Day
