“If you live your life with passion, every second will become an adventure.”
― Marie Guillaume, Mr. Wolf V. the Three Pigs: Mr. Wolf Goes to Court
During the month of September the Yellow Team decided to call themselves the “Minions” for the remainder of the school year. They spent time getting to know their new classmates and welcoming those that joined the “Minion” room by showing them around and helping them settle into the daily routine. The Minions’ outstanding acts of thoughtfulness and kindness has earned them multiple links on their caring chain, which will eventually lead to a special event/wish day when it is 5 feet long. The volunteer readers who visited the first grade classroom last year will visit the Minion room this year. Their first visit was on September 23rd and after an afternoon of storytelling, they were able to enjoy cookies and milk with the children before choice time began.
In October, we will be learning about fairy tales and comic books. The children will stretch their imagination and sense of adventure by working with friends to create their very own endings to the Three Little Pigs. They will work together to think of other scenerios as to why the wolf might want to blow the pigs’ houses down and come up with a solution for the problem, which they will present to the class. Additionally during the weeks of our learning about fairy tales, the children will develop their very own wild and crazy Mad-Lib of the Three Little Pigs during our daily meeting. Towards the end of the month once the childrens’ imaginations are going wild, we are going to add in some adventure to the Minions’ day. Each child will have the opportunity to create their very own comic book and Super Hero Cape. When the comic books are complete, they will be shared with their classmates during reading time on October 30th.
Please feel free to bring in a change of clothes for your child, tucked in a large Ziploc bag and labeled. Also, please make sure that as the weather changes that children are dressing appropriately because we always go outside to enjoy some fresh air.
A couple of reminders this month…
* Your child’s safety is one of our main priorities. To help us with this, please remember to sign your child out everyday. The sign out book will be located outside the cafeteria along with a board showing the location of the 1/2 Yellow class at that time.
