Dear Parents, With the Fall Season upon us, Columbus Day and the excitement of Halloweens’ arrival we engaged in many fun activities.
Some of our fun art activities included a paper bag scarecrow, Columbus’ ships, bats, cats, pumpkins, witches, etc.. Everyone went pumpkin picking in our playground. We cut out a large pumpkin. Everyone got to remove the pulp & seeds – Oh what reactions we got from that!! Faces were priceless. We saved and cleaned the seeds, roasted them and everyone ate and took some home. Yummy! We had a Halloween party – Everyone loved playing pin the nose on the pumpkin, musical chairs and the freeze dance. Everyone got a prize too. The children dressed in their Halloween costumes and sang our cute Halloween songs for their mommies, daddies and grandparents. We were all so so proud of them! With the beautiful weather we paraded in the play yard so we could take some cute fall photos.
Our monthly bits of information were different kind of leaves, street signs and vehicles (police cars, ambulance, street sweeper, motor home, tractor-trailer, etc. etc.). The nursery group was introduced to the cylinder & parallelogram. The pre-K children were introduced to the line segment, angles, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon and nonagon. So exciting to see everyone moving along so nicely at their own pace. All pre-K children can write their own first name. Coloring in the lines has greatly improved and we have 3 more children reading phonetically. So proud of everyone!! Now everyone knows how to put on their own jacket. They are so proud of themselves.
