September 24th - 28th, 2018

Our Weekly Reader last week taught us about farming and harvesting apples.  We made our own apples using paint, paper plates and a shower puff to hang outside our classroom.

We love to play outside any opportunity we get!   Please make sure you send your child to school in sneakers.  Each day, before heading outside, we review our play ground rules.  

We love to go down the green slide!

And climb too!


We will be using the Teach your Monster to Read program at school and it will be beneficial to your child if they can play at home as well.  If your child is ready to begin  this program, you received a letter and log in information from me this week.  Please do not let them play at home just yet, we want to introduce it at school first.  Please remember to send in a pair of headphones.  

In Religion, we talked about God giving us eyes to see all the wonderful things in the world.  
Here is a list of things that we can see:  

Our friends
Bumble Bees
Rhinos  ( apparently many of us see rhinos!:-)
Mommy & Daddy

  • Please empty blue folders daily.  This is a great way to start a conversation with your child about their day.
  • Be sure to use the music that you received at back to school night at home.  The children really enjoy the music!
  • If you have not sent in headphones please do so.
  • Gym days are Monday & Wednesday next week.
  • Sneakers should be worn everyday.
  • I will be sending emails out in the next few days just to touch base regarding your child's progress.
Have a wonderful weekend!
