Pumpkins, Fall and Harvest Time!

Dear Wonderful Wood Acres families,

What a “cool” week we had here at the Woods. We hope you were able to enjoy this fall weather at some point. Whether it was going for a walk or just opening up your windows to enjoy the breeze. We know your littles ones did. The highlight of our week was exploring our beautiful campus as we walked throughout the school learning about nature. We found acorns, pine cones, leaves, and more! We also discovered a quiet place where we sat and listened to the nature around us. We also read “There Was An Old Lady Who Sallowed Some Leaves”.

As we jump into another great week, our theme is Nocturnal animals and Pumpkins. The children will be working on their creativity by creating bat hats, and raccoons. We will also explore the inside of a pumpkin. During morning circle, we will discuss what kind of animals are nocturnal and why they only come out at night and as well as discussing the cycle of how a pumpkin grows.

For the number unit, your little ones will continue to work on their number book. This week our focus is the number five (5 hives). We will complete the number book up to 10. Once completed, they will be sent home to continue to review these numbers. How cute these books are turning out to be! One, Two, Three! Numbers are a part of me!

This week in Investigator Club, we will meet Auntie Lou, who is a great artist. Our studies are as followed:

Physical Awareness: Listen for Words.

Art: Feel the texture.

Math: Magnet board 5.

Goblins, witches, and ghosts all make believe on Halloween! We will be holding our Halloween party October 31st at 10:30. We are only asking our room mom and sign up helpers attend to attend to help your little ones enjoy this spooky day. We will prowl around our campus in our most creative costumes and trick-or-treat amongst one another. Ms. Wright and I are asking if possible to bring in one PEANUT FREE bag of candy for your child to exchange with one another. It also doesn’t have to be candy. You can do stickers, tattoos, or rubber Halloween bracelets. These are just some ideas. No worries if you can’t! We always have tricks up our sleeves! BOOOoooo!

Fun Friday: Inside out day. Year your clothes to school inside out to school.

Fall break: November 16th through at 23rd.

Early release: November 16tg at 12:45, during carline. If you are unable able to pick up your child, please make other arrangements for your child to be picked up at this time. Thank you.

We would like thank Jean Bimmerle who was our Mystery reader last week. The children enjoyed listening to some of Resse’s favorite Stories. This week Mystery reader is open. If you would like to be a part of our fun Friday, please let me know.

We hope you all have a safe and healthy week!

Ms. Orsano & Ms. Wright
