Preschool/Orange Room Newsletter
Hi there preschool families! What a successful week we had. I think it is safe to say that the kids all had the most fun at our St. Michael’s pumpkin patch. You should have seen Everett’s excitement at that pumpkin patch! No one can match that! And Wyatt worked so hard painting his pumpkin, so cute! Thankyou to everyone who donated and attended. We also took this week to learn the letter P for pumpkin in class, made our very own pumpkin puzzle using the letters in our names, and played with pumpkin pie scented playdoh. The kids loved it! We read “It’s Pumpkin Time” by Zoe Hall, discussed the pumpkin life cyle and dissected a pumpkin.
Next week we will continue our study of shapes and tie it into Halloween. Our Halloween party is Thursday, October 29th. We will celebrate with a ghost craft, and Halloween themed games. I am looking forward to our special snack- Pumpkin Patch Brownies! Yum! Our entire class will be dressing in orange, purple, or black that day for our party. Please dress your child accordingly. Thankyou!
During the week of November 2nd we will be learning about fire safety and what to do in an emergency. In order to do this we need to have correct address and phone number information. I don’t expect the children to end this week knowing every number by heart, but this is a great opportunity to introduce the concept. I would like children to know true names for parents not just ‘Mommy’ and ‘Daddy’. This comes in handy in any situation, for example; getting lost in the grocery store. Practice with your children- quiz them so that they know both parent’s names, along with last names. Thankyou for your support! If your address or phone number has changed, please fill out the form below and return by November 3rd.
The Orange Room is in need of your old magazines! Cutting the pictures out of magazine pages is helpful for a number of reasons. It gives kids practice with scissors, and helps math skills by sorting. Please send them in at your earliest convenience.
All Soul’s Day is Monday, November 2nd. This is a day of remembrance for loved ones who have passed in the last year. We will say a special prayer on Tuesday so every child can be involved. If your family has experienced a loss this year, please send in that person’s name so we can say a prayer for them.
