Thank you to all the parents who attended Meet the Teacher Night on Sept.13.  It was good to be together and  share what we will do this year. We do become like a family as the year goes by.

This week  we will start some Literacy activities .We will distinguish pictures from print and  learn that  words are made up of letters.We ll do a ”magic art” activity where your child’s name will be revealed after painting over a page. We will continue our daily Read Aloud time as well as book time after snack.
We will begin a Circle Unit in Math Center where we will do a lot of hands on activities to know circles are everywhere. We will even use circle crackers one day to create wheels on a car. In addition we will continue to use all the math manipulatives  each day.

We will discuss fire drills and start the very important job of practicing for school wide fire drills. We ll read some stories that teach the importance of fire drills and the role of firefighters in our community.

In Science we will extend some weather knowledge and work on a weather wheel to identify different types of weather.

We started Rhythm Stick activities this week in Music and Movement as well as freeze dancing.This week we will add bean bag time as well.

This is a sampling of what we will do in the week ahead.

Next week we will celebrate the  beginning of fall and Johnny Appleseed’s birthday. He was an American folk hero.

If you would like to contribute some bottled water to our class ,it would be appreciated. Sometimes the children finish their water bottle water and   we do not have a kitchen sink to refill bottles .Thank you so much.

Return resting blankets on Monday.Thank you.
