What’s that sound coming from our classroom?? Why it’s children chanting, “5 Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate.” The class LOVED this chant! I always try to include the words so you can sing along with your young child too. To reinforce Number 5, we made a project by placing 5 pumpkins on a gate……so cute! Besides the five pumpkins, there are five monkeys too! Those five naughty monkeys teased Mr. Crocodile and they jumped on the bed. Ask your child to sing these classic favorites also.

We heard a few stories these past few days on how a pumpkin grows from a seed. We hope you like the fold-out display your child made showing this sequence. Learning to sequence a life cycle or a story is a very important goal in our Early School curriculum. It lets me know if your child comprehended what happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story. We will continue to do more sequencing this year.

Get those costumes ready for Wednesday. A parade and party are planned for the morning…..How Exciting! Please refer to the letter that was sent home about the costumes.
