Dear Parents and Friends,
Happy Monday! We are going to finally have some Fall weather this week. Hope everyone enjoys the cool breeze along with the sweater and sweatshirt temperatures!
This week we will begin a new theme, Head to Toe, which will focus this week on how marvelous our body is. We will concentrate on our heart, lungs, brain and the major systems of the human body.
KinderRoo will be bringing the letters Cc, Kk and Uu. There was Corn on the Cob and crayons ALL over the hallway!! Be sure to ask your child how CRAZY that was! We will be continuing with our homework this week. We will be reading MY BRAIN. Please be sure to sign the homework slip each night for your child and return the books each morning. Students are working very hard at pointing to each word as they read. We are so impressed with their efforts!
In Math, we will be counting AND comparing numbers this week. We will also be measuring various items, using the vocabulary, longer than, shorter than as well as comparing quantities. These will be difficult concepts at first, but with practice, both at home and school, they will become easier and easier.
Our new Playground is almost ready and we are beyond excited!! Thank you to everyone who has taken the time out of their busy schedules to help with this huge project! During P.E this week all the children are helping to spread the mulch around. The children are just going to LOVE this new space!
We are almost out of extra snacks! If anyone would like to bring in snack bags or extra snack to share, it would be greatly appreciated. We can not thank you enough for all that you do to help make our days a bit smoother.
Have a Great Week!
Amy and Ashley
