Thank you for attending the Parent-Teacher conference this past week. I know that sometimes it can be difficult to carve out time in your schedule but it was so nice to get to chat with each of you for a short while. Please remember, if you ever have any questions or concerns to contact me.
Last week we integrated math, science, and writing into a pumpkin activity. The kids estimated how many seeds were inside the pumpkins, estimated their weights, and learned some interesting new facts about pumpkins. They also began their first creative writing project that involved them recording information while carving the pumpkins and turning the steps they took into a transitional and creative writing piece. These are turning out very nicely and will be shared in the hallway once completed.
This coming week we have a lot of exciting things going on as well! Tuesday is our field trip to the PAC for Schoolhouse Rock Live! We will be leaving the school around 9:15-9:30 to walk downtown and arriving back at school around noon. Thursday is the school carnival from 6:30-8, with the dance continuing on until 8:30pm. Friday will be our classroom Halloween party and celebration of Aden's birthday.
Halloween Party: for our classroom party we will be doing a sensory activity/story, a halloween craft, and enjoying food, chatter, and laughter with each other. I will be sending home a letter requesting that each child bring in a food item to share.
Please no peanuts, tree nuts, or carrots.
Have a great week!
