OCTOBER NEWSLETTER

Last month we were really into music and movement. We moved to The Bear Hunt, The Lion Hunt, Animal Action, The Animal Freeze and Bop Til You Drop.

We learned about lions, made cool art to create lions and even made
binoculars to use during our Lion Hunt.

We began our letters of the week by introducing our “Colorpillar”. Each week the new letter of the week will be hidden somewhere in our classroom and we’ll have to hunt for it to add to our existing Colorpillar.

Last month we also welcomed some new friends to our class! The Redwoods have been very kind and helpful with guiding our new friends and showing them around our school. We are very proud of them for lending a helping hand.

We look forward to October as we Fall into Autumn. We plan on watching for seasonal changes, learn fun and silly songs and read spooky stories together.

This month we will also learn about outer space! The Redwoods have really been interested in learning about the planets, stars and the constellations.

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
During the beginning of November we will be learning about and celebrating The Day Of The Dead. Please bring a picture or pictures of a loved one that has passed away and we will display them on the altar we will be creating. Please have your picture(s) to school by 10/30.

HALLOWEEN PARTY
We will have a Halloween party on Friday 10/30. Wear your costume to school today! Bring a change of clothes if you stay all day! If your child does not come to school on Friday’s they’re welcome to join us from 9:00am – 11:30pm. Please let us know in advance if your child is coming so we can set a spot for them at our party table. We’ll share our costumes, play games and parade around the yard at 10:30am.

Due to COVID restrictions parents will not be allowed to view our parade in person but we will be setting up a Zoom meeting so you can view the parade virtually. Zoom meeting info. will be sent via email the week of October 26th.
