Pre K October News
Happy October everyone! The air is crisp and the sun is still warm on your face, it’s a great month to get outside and explore our
surroundings and find out what is changing in nature. We will be following the migration of the Monarch butterfly and seeing just how long
their journey is to a place far from where we live. By using straws we will see first hand how they drink up their nutrients and fly round.
Next up we will focus on all different kinds of apples and which ones we enjoy the most.
Moving on from our apple week we will find out what tree has large heart shaped leaves and
long pods attached to it. Cat nine tails will be introduced along with the catalpa tree this week figuring out just what the two have in common.
Pumpkins and Halloween of course will wrap up the month.
We are encouraging all our families to help their children put together a “ Quiet Box “ for our short rest time after lunch. This can be a fun thing
to do with your child over the weekend. All you need is some crayons or markers to decorate and some items
that are quiet and soft to put into the box. This way during rest they have their Quiet boxes available to them as well as books and stuffies
from our classroom in the case that they are not tired enough to rest.
On Wednesday October 31st, we will be celebrating Halloween by acting out one of
Jackie's favorite Halloween books, Big Pumpkin and then sharing some spooky treats!
Enjoy your month!
Jackie and Alyssa
Other items to note:
We need one king size pillowcase for each child.
Please label your child's lunch items (containers, waterbottles and such). We have already had a case of the missing container...
