This past 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 and puppets so they can retell the story. 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! When we mention the number 3, we dare not leave out “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” This is an outstanding tale for teaching…Small, Medium and Large!
The number 4 was introduced by learning the 4 seasons of the year. The class colored 4 trees and then painted dots in colors that matched each season. “Which is your favorite season?” is a good question to discuss with your child when looking at the project.
We finally got to meet with our 7th Grade Book Buddies on Friday with a picnic lunch. After lunch, we moved inside for story time. The older children took one or two younger ones and read a book. Among the 7th graders were Walker Laird and Claire Dunn who were in my 3 Year Old Class which didn’t seem that long ago!
Thank you to Shaya Taghecian, Pierce’s mom, for reading to our class!
Enjoy the photos and have a nice week.
