Preschool/Orange Room Newsletter
November 12, 2020
This week we started a new theme: Food! Boy did the kids like this one! Haha! On Tuesday we discussed breads, grains, and cereals, and on Thursday we discussed dairy. We read “More Spaghetti, I Say!” by Rita Golden Gelman and counted out seeds to put into milk cartons as shakers! We talked about where we buy food and recipes (what it takes to make our favorite meals). We even made a class recipe book! You will see this come home in the next week or so as some have not finished yet.
We also discussed Veteran’s Day on Wednesday and spent extra time praying for Veterans and thanking God for using them to keep us safe.
The kids have been loving raking up the leaves and playing them. Every single one of them enjoys having a ‘leaf catching’ contest outside when wind blows the leaves off the trees. On Tuesday, Sam grabbed my hand and insisted I run through the falling leaves with him. So fun!
We will continue our discussion of food with meats, fruits/vegetables, and healthy/unhealthy foods. We will also be talking about Thanksgiving- gratitude, and how to be generous to others. We will draw pictures of our favorite foods, and count turkeys. Our religious lesson next week will center on Thankfulness and we will create a ‘thankful’ tree.
We will also be talking about a new project approach starting next week. We will explore some of our favorite subjects to determine a new project.
-Please send your child in layers! The weather is getting colder (it’s supposed to be...) and I am always willing to assist your child if a sweatshirt/jacket gets too hot, etc. Hats and mittens are encouraged as well. We may not use them this week, but the weather could turn quickly! -The Orange Room is in need of magazines! We use these for cutting and sorting practice (collages) and go through them quickly. Please bring in any old magazines you may have laying around. Thanks! - December 17th is our virtual Christmas Program! The children have already been practicing their songs! This program will be filmed on December 15th. In order to make our program as ‘normal’ as possible, please dress your child in their Christmas outfit (like they would have worn in the program) on December 15th. This is the date we will film the program. It will be on our Facebook page on the 17th. This is for all students, not just Preschool, the younger ones will be included. - We will not have class on Wednesday, November 25th, but childcare will be open. Happy Thanksgiving!
