Hello Parents:

We want to thank all of the parents who have been helping out midday! We really appreciate it. Parents have signed up for next week as well! We still need volunteers for the week of October 7th. If you are able to volunteer for at least an hour, we would appreciate it!

We are winding down our “All About Me” Topic of Study with a few more family and “me” focused activities. Please remember to assist your child in completing homework and turn it in as soon as possible if you haven’t already done so.

We have a new Donors Choose for art and construction supplies. I will attach the link  and send it via Class Dojo when it is approved!  Please share the link on social media!

We will also dive deep into our study of Apples/Gourds/Pumpkins. We are collecting unique and cool looking gourds. Please feel free to add to our collection. We will end our study with a field trip to Eden’s Nature Center on Thursday, October 31st. We are looking for parent volunteers to accompany us on the trip. All children, in all 3 preschool classrooms will attend from 9:15-noon. If you would like to volunteer to assist us on our field trip please review the following expectations and responsibilities let me know you are interested:

Parent participation is essential in ensuring that our preschool children have appropriate field trip experiences. We highly appreciate parents who are able to assist us on our outings! We want to thank all of the parents who will be assisting us on our trips in advance!  On field trips we ask that parents supervise their child along with a small group of other children. We ask that you follow all safety rules and abide by the set schedule especially for meal and departure times. We ask that you assist in buckling all students into and out of their seat belts. We require that you buddy up with another adult to take children to the bathroom (if needed). We also ask that parents do not take part in any extra activities that are not included in the pre-planned field trip (i.e. going to any show/exhibit/performance that is an extra cost, or purchase treats or toys at souvenir shops). We have children with food allergies and it could be potentially dangerous to partake in treats/food made with unknown ingredients.

We will be ready for volunteers to start in the classroom November 4th. Please sign up on the volunteer sheet if you would like to volunteer. Please look over the volunteer options below and indicate on the sign- up sheet which volunteer role you would like to do. Please be sure to indicate the days and the amount of time you are able to volunteer in our classroom.

Volunteering Opportunity Description
We will be ready to have parents come into the classroom and volunteer beginning October November 4th.  I will have a sign-up sheet available on Monday for you to sign up for a day and time that you would like to volunteer. We need volunteers to work with small groups of children, reading to children, and we can always use help with some of our house keeping duties. Please sign up for activities that you feel comfortable participating in. Please write R- behind your name if you would like to read to children, A- for doing activities with the children, or H- for housekeeping duties, C- for creating crafty things for the classroom, T- for technology assistance. I will give you details instructions so that you feel comfortable working with the children or completing the housekeeping duties. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Please let me know if you would like to volunteer on an ongoing basis.

As many of you know I am very passionate about providing challenging and interesting mathematical experiences for my students. I have attached a couple of links for you to view me in action. The video clips are from a program that I participated in as a part the Erickson Early Math Initiative a few years ago. We continue to use the activities and I have added many more activities to enhance my student’s math experiences. Enjoy the videos of children exploring their math limits!

Just Right for Me

Have a great week,

Ms. Bethanie & Ms. Maggie
