What has happened:
October was filled with fall fun! We incorporated music into October with our “Five Little Pumpkins” song, I’m sure you’ve heard your child singing it. We made apple suncatchers, decorated acorns, and tasted apples. After tasting apples, each child chose their favorite and we charted it to show the most favored apple. PreK has been helping us decorate our classroom with butterflies and a beautiful friendship chain. We also observed the inside of a pumpkin; we discussed what we saw, smelt, and felt. We incorporated math with the pumpkin. We guessed how tall the pumpkin was using unifix cubes and, as well, we predicted how many lines were on the pumpkin.
What is to come:
With the upcoming Presidential Election we will be discussing how the voting process works. PreK will be able to vote on activities for choice time as well as casting votes on which book to read for read aloud. This allows them to be involved and have a choice in the activities put in their classroom.
November will be about giving back! Our class will discuss how we can give back to others. We will be making cards for the veterans that will be put in bags that HEDP will bring to the West Roxbury Veterans Home. If anyone in your family is a veteran or is active in the armed forces please give us a picture of them to add to our Hall of Heroes display.
