Preschool 2 Update
We have finished our special study of the apple and are nearly done with our pumpkin work. The children learned the parts of the apple- skin, flesh, seed, stem and calyx or crown.
The pumpkin work consists of the life cycle of the pumpkin- the seeds, the vine, the flowers, and then the pumpkin. We were lucky enough to have a real pumpkin to cut in half and see the seeds and stringy pulp. Teacher Bettey brought us a pumpkin vine with flowers on it for us to see. We should be completing this soon.
The children have been busy doing math and language works as well. We have all had lessons in the math rod and the pink tower, and we are still working on our French colors! We would love to have any books that focus on pumpkins, autumn, or Halloween to read at circle time!
A few reminders- our Halloween celebration will be on Friday, October 29th. We will be having a potluck. Please sign up at the front hall at the school with a healthy dish. The children are welcome to wear their costumes to school, but should also have a change of clothes. If you would like to bring treats or candy to share with the group, please feel free. No peanuts or nut trees, please.
Our parent teacher conferences will be on Thursday, November 11th, Veterans' Day. There will be no school that day. A sign-up will be out soon!
