We had a great week learning about our colors! We tried red apples, blueberries, and yellow bananas as part of our color study. We read “Blueberries for Sal” by Robert Mcloskey while we ate our blueberries. It was so fun to see each child so engrossed in this story! We also took time to paint with each color and discuss colors we see around the room.
Each week we choose one letter to study. This week we are studying Rosie’s letter R. We will study each child’s letter as opportunities arise during the year. I have already sent home the lowercase ‘r’. Please encourage home to school connections by doing this craft with your child. You may choose to color it “R for red”!
Next week we will study the colors green and orange. We will have our morning meeting outside in the green grass and try oranges for our snack. The kids love finding the color of the day on their clothing so try to dress your child accordingly for extra fun! Tuesday is the color green and Wednesday is the color orange. Thursday is rainbow day!
Don’t forget about the virtual open house on the St. Michael Child Center Charlestown, Indiana Facebook page. Check us out on September 30th. The children are so excited to welcome you to our school!
This year our pumpkin patch field trip will be at St. Michael’s. We are looking for donations of pumpkins and hay bales to make this fun day possible. Be on the lookout for more details coming soon. We are also open to COVID safe activity ideas, let us know if you have any ideas or helpful game materials.
The mornings are getting chilly! Please send in light jackets for your child. Layers are best! I am happy to help your child take layers off if they get too warm.
Fall break is October 5th- 16th. We will not have Preschool those weeks; however childcare will still be open. I will be sending out small learning packets soon for your child to work on over the break.
Keep practicing self-help skills! Water bottles, chip bags, twistable yogurts/ apple sauces should all be practiced often with your child. Children are more empowered when they have independence in small things like this.
