Good Morning Families,
This week, I feel like Fall is finally upon us with cool mornings and if you look closely, you can see the leaves on top of our campus trees turning colors. Because we have cool mornings, the children are wearing their jackets to school. PLEASE LABEL ALL OUTERWEAR with your child’s name. I cannot tell you how many jackets are lost because children leave jackets on the playground, in Specials or in Tree House! Thanks so much!

We had fun this week with Number 3! First, the class heard the flannel board story of “The Three Little Pigs,” and then we created that adorable craft of the three houses. We acted out the story by singing the song from Jack Hartman. The kids loved it so much, we played it twice. Ask your child to tell the story to you. They also heard the flannel board story of “The 3 Silly Wishes,” about a woodcutter who is granted 3 wishes and inadvertently wishes for the wrong things. It is a hilarious tale!

One of my favorite themes to teach is Nocturnal Animals. Quiz your child to see if they can name some animals that roam at night looking for food. I loved the art project of the spooky eyes peering out of the tree. They heard the books, “Little Owl’s Night” and “Quiet Night,” which was anything but quiet! The children liked making the animal sounds you hear at night. In Art class, the boys and girls created adorable Nocturnal owls which we hung on the bulletin board in our room. If you get the chance, make sure to check it out! On Friday, everyone wore their pajamas to school What a nice, easy morning for kids and moms alike! We will have another pajama day before Christmas break.

Our Halloween Party is fast approaching……..Wednesday, Oct. 31 and the party moms are busy at work preparing a fun day for the class. Our party will begin at 10:30 with moms setting up at 10:15. The children will wear their costumes and will parade through the Early School rooms before the party begins! More information will be coming home about the costumes.

I hoped you had the chance to visit the Book Fair last week. Thank you for the books I received from my Wish List. I do not know who donated “Pete the Cat….First Thanksgiving” book. Please let me know so I may give some hugs to your child.

On Friday, we had a birthday party for Bennett Sullivan who turned 4! Happy Birthday Bennett whose official birthday is today!

Have a Nice Weekend,
Wanda and Cindy
