October Newsletter

September just flew by! Summer is over and we are finally starting to feel some cooler mornings and nights. That means one thing…FALL IS HERE!!!

This month we are talking about planting and looking at the different parts of a plant. The children will be able to identify the seed, roots, blossoms and leaves of a plant. We will be planting sunflower seeds in our room and the children will watch as our sunflower seeds grow from a simple seed to a strong beautiful flower.

Our academic studies this month will be identifying, writing and learning the sound for letters Jj, Oo, Cc and Xx. Please review letter sounds and writing at home. When practicing handwriting, please make sure your child is starting at the top and going down when forming the letters. Also, proper pencil grip and being able to work independently are things we are working on in class.

The big party this month will be our Fall Festival on Wednesday, October 31st. The children can wear their costumes to school so that they will be ready to parade around the school. We will then start our festivities consisting of a pumpkin patch, fall crafts and snacks. Look for more information on this in a few weeks.

We would like to thank Sarah Buckmaster for organizing our September Art Masterpiece. Our projects turned out beautiful!
