What's Going on in Class:

Over the past two weeks the children have been introduced to glue sticks, paint mixing, colored pencils and hole punches. They are all enjoying using the new materials. In dress up we have added necklaces and shoes. The blocks are open and we are practicing building and putting the blocks away.

During family we have tasted two different apples and graphed our favorite one. In the science area we have smell jars to smell and shaker eggs to hear different sounds. Take a look in the science area for these activities.

During snack time we have practiced pouring water to the line, opening up a napkin, counting the four squares and finding the middle of the napkin. We have scooped cheerios and pasta.

Every year we make a pumpkin patch outside for the children to explore. We need pumpkins to make this happen. The school pumpkin patch will start October 15 if you would like to donate to it that would be amazing!

Please work on self help skills at home with your child. At school we encourage going to the bathroom on their own, washing hands on their own and dressing themselves. The more practice they can get the more confident they will become with these skills.
