Last week of September

Another great week!  We read the story of "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" and it quickly became a favorite.  On Thursday we started our Apple unit.  Our first book was a Dr.Seuss favorite, "10 Apple up on Top".  The kids worked on a page for a class book and posed for pictures with apples up on their heads.  Too cute! 

This week we also met Officer Mambro, our school safety officer.  He spoke to our class about school lock downs and the importance of staying safe. On Friday, the students practiced their first lock down with the school.  The kids did super and were very quite.

As October begins, we will be starting weekly homework folders.  Please encourage your kids to do their very best.  Homework should only take a few moments each night.  We will also begin "Star of the Day".  Each day a new student will be chosen and will be our calendar helper for the day and our line leader.  The following day they may bring in a show and tell. 

Friday is our fieldtrip to Parlee Farms.  Please make sure your child wears comfortable sneackers.  We will be walking down a small hill to the pumpkins with pumpkin vines and it can also be muddy at times. The kids will be able to go on a small hay ride, pick apples and a small pumpkin, feed some of the animals and explore on the small hay maze.
