Hello to all my “Yellow Aprons”! October was a fun and exciting month.  We had lots of fun making our fall and Halloween art projects. These included roller-painting our paper pumpkins orange, gadget painting on our black cats, bubble wrap stamp painting our bats, and marble painting/ glitter on our spider webs. We have been learning how to make orange. When we hug the colors yellow and red together we make orange! 

We also learned that our shape the triangle has 3 sides. Our number two is special because we walk to the classroom door two by two when we need to go outside. The children really enjoyed learning about their five senses, smelling, tasting, hearing, seeing and touching. We discussed our five senses and had fun things on our science table and in our classroom to work with. The children really enjoyed discovering what was inside our pumpkin!

How about that Grand Prix? I’m so proud of all our yellow aprons who participated. We hope everyone enjoyed all the activities and entertainment. It was a beautiful sunny day for the activities.  We really appreciated everyone’s help and support at this fun event!  We took our first field trip of the school year to the Amy’s Farm/Pumpkin Patch. I hope all the children that attended enjoyed choosing a pumpkin of their very own to bring home. Everyone enjoyed decorating their pumpkin in class! Thank you to all our parents and children who participated!

We want to say thank you to our “Room Parents” and parents who signed up to bring in all the goodies for our Halloween parties. We love seeing all our “Yellow Aprons” dress up in their great costumes! We hope everyone has a safe Halloween this year.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at Parent/Teacher Conferences on Thursday, November 7th and Friday, November 8th.

There will also be no school on Monday, November 11th in honor of Veteran’s Day. 

November is the month to give special attention to all of the things we are thankful for.

We will be talking about what we are thankful for such as our family, friends, food and our home. We will be continuing with fall themes and learning many new songs. These songs will be sung at the “Celebration of Thanks” on Thursday, November 21st and Friday, November 22nd. We hope to see all of you there!

The week beginning on November 25th – November 29th there is no school due to the Thanksgiving Holiday.

The color this month is brown as well as the other fall colors.

Our new shape is the square. We will be working with the number three.

Our Art Appreciation painting displayed this month is “Hands Holding Bouquet” by Pablo Picasso. The beautiful colors of paint will be available for the children to create their own special flower bouquet painting.

The children always enjoy chapel time with Mrs. Robin Kerber! We loved learning the song “The More We Pray Together”. We will be singing it at the Celebration of Thanks.

We will be turning our housekeeping area into a grocery store this month.  Please bring in empty cereal and or cracker boxes, milk and egg cartons etc. Anything would be greatly appreciated!

We are very thankful for all the children in our class and hope all of you have a very blessed Thanksgiving holiday!

Much love,

Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Ventura
