Hello everyone. It has been quite the busy week . We are truly creating a community of kindness within our classroom. Everyone wants their name on the Act of Kindness Tree. They are kind to one another, and practicing being a part of a team. Way to go VPK 2 !
It was great seeing all the children in their PJ’s. Thank you for supporting the Down Syndrome Association.
This Week’s Highlights
Today we used all of our “senses” to examine a pumpkin as we learned together. We all took a turn at “Paper Making” with Mr. Greg in Science. Please take the opportunity to check out their work on the board in our room.
Today we painted pumpkins and used our precious handprints for the leaves.
Oh what fun we had making “SLIME”. I hope everyone will enjoy playing with it, check your child’s back pack for the reason their hands are green… ewwwww. It was great going to the big science lab in the day school for this exciting class!
Today we continued our work with sight words and adding words to the word wall. We also celebrated Kagan’s birthday. Her Mom had something special planned for her.
Today we will make some yummy pumpkin bread and bake the seeds from the pumpkin we carved to investigate.
Today we will be starting to write in our journals. This is emergent writing for us, the beginning stages of writing our favorite part, or character from the book, “Pumpkin Soup”.
Book of the Week/Theme:
Next week we begin a new theme on leaves, from the book, The Big Leaf Pile. We will count them, paint them, and learn all about leaves.
Picture Day: Tuesday, November 13 for individual photos & Friday, November 16 for class photo *If you want a sibling photo, please send a note to the office so this can be coordinated.
Don’t forget our Guest Reader program is at 9:30. Our children look forward to you reading to them, thank you for the wonderful turn out. Please remember our little ones can’t sit for long periods of time – one book per family. Please e-mail me to let me know if you will be reading, and what book you will bring or if I need to have one for you.
