Since the Veterans Day holiday is falling on a Sunday , we are off on Monday. The class learned that veterans are any man or woman who served in the military. If you are a veteran or know one we say Thank you for your service.
This week we will continue our La Tortuga work in our Reading / Literacy program. Our next unit The Elves and the Shoemaker will begin after Thanksgiving. In Math Center we will continue our square shapes study and work on classifying by length which is a concept from La Tortuga. What we learn and do in PreK  crosses over subjects and is very hands on.
We are extending our knowledge about the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe who were living in Plymouth when the Pilgrims arrived. For our feast next Tuesday the boys and girls will make headwear to represent  the group that interests them more. We thank you in advance for what you will contribute to their feast .We hope you can join us in the cafeteria but if you cannot ,you can send your item to school with your student in the morning.
This Tuesday is a school wide Red ,White and Blue dress down day.Since our class does not wear a uniform there is no fee to participate but if you like your child can wear a patriotic colored item of clothing to school.
We are going to talk about the Christmas pageant in class this week so the boys and girls can become familiar with what we will do and  parts will be assigned. We have costumes for all the roles.There are no speaking parts  so there is no stress about learning lines. It makes Christmas time extra joyous to prepare for this pageant. It takes place at the end of the school Christmas Concert on Dec.17. Details will follow as we get closer to the day.
Thank you for all your interest and cooperation.
