This school year is flying by! We had fun down on the farm and exploring apples and pumpkins. We
enjoyed reading and acting out “Big Pumpkin” and learning lots of fun Halloween songs. The students
really enjoyed the pumpkin bowling at our Halloween celebration.
Our next focus will be on food and Thanksgiving. Our dramatic play area will be transformed into a
grocery store for us to explore. We will be reading about different kinds of food and learning about
making healthy choices. Keep an eye out for a few turkeys trotting around our room as well. All of
this will culminate our Thanksgiving Feast on November 20th at Central Park West.
We’ve started working on learning our alphabet. We focus on one letter a week. At home you might
be hearing our fun Jolly Phonics songs that help us learn the letter sounds. There is so much to keep
us busy and working hard in preschool.
Please remember that school pictures are on November 3rd & 4th and Parent Teacher conferences
are on the 23rd & 24th. More information will be coming home soon.
Bundle your students up for the playground as it is getting chillier every day. Hopefully we’ll be able
to get out a few more days before the weather forces us down to the gym - we love getting fresh air
on the playground!
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
