Week of November 6th

Hello Parents:
We have been thoroughly enjoying investigating gourds, apples, and pumpkins! Be sure to check out our bulletin board to see all of the cool activities the children participated in. We want to thank all of the parents who accompanied us on the field trip! We really appreciate all the help! I also want to thank the parents who have kept our room stocked with play dough. If you would like to volunteer to make play dough for our class, please sign-up on our play dough calendar beside the sign- in sheet. The recipe that works best is behind the calendar, please take one!

 

November will be a very busy month for us. We will move onto to studying leaves. Please keep a look out in your child’s mailbox for a home “collection” activity in the next couple of weeks.
There will be a parent teacher conferences on November 15th. I have times from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. If you need to schedule a special time or day please let me know, I would be happy to schedule a time that works for you. Please be sure to sign up for the Parent Teacher conferences (on the clipboard beside the sign in sheet).

As the weather gets cooler please be sure to dress your child appropriately. In addition, please check your child’s extra clothes in their cubby to make sure they are weather appropriate for the changing weather.

Being that the days are shorter and the weather is cooler outside time will start to become limited. Chicago Public Schools has a great alternative site for parents and kids and to access.
