The Blue Family has been working on Social/Emotional Development and Conflict Resolution. Hopefully while interacting with their siblings or friends you have heard the phrase, “I’m using it!” or “You can have it when I’m done.” This is something we will be working on all year long. In SCIENCE, we have been exploring sunflowers and seeds. We prepared our garden box and planted some sunflower seeds in our garden box. If you have anything to donate for our garden box please let us know.
Illness: A few of our friends in the Blue Family have been sick. When your child is sick, please email Miss Jennifer to let us know. If you call the school, we may not get the message until much later. We like to pray for them as a class. Just a reminder your child can return to school 24 hours after a fever or vomiting. We sanitize the classroom and wash hands often to cut back on germs.
Halloween: We celebrate Halloween with a “mask parade.” The children decorate a paper plate mask then we march around the school then have a special snack. We do not have the children wear their costumes or bring candy to school but we would love to put a PHOTO of them in their costume on our bulletin board

Science: We will be exploring apples and pumpkins.
Dramatic Play: We will have a paint kit on the patio then a pumpkin stan
