Purple Room News:

I have been the teacher in the Purple room for about a month now and I am so happy I got this opportunity to spend my time with your kids! They have taught me so many things since I have started and I am sure they will continue to teach me many more!

This month is full of exciting activities. First of all, I would like to wish Callie and Emma luck as they transition to the Blue Room this month! It was a joy having them both every day and I can’t wait to see the amazing things they do as they learn and grow. I would also like to welcome two new friends, Emmalynn and Frances from the Lavender Room! We are so excited to have you both joining us! Lifetouch photos for the Purple Room are on October 10th, we can’t wait to see your kids all dressed up for pictures!

The other exciting event happening this month is the Fall Festival, this will be hosted at Little Stars with so many fun games and activities for your whole family! This event is taking place on October 24th at 6:30pm. We can’t wait to see all of you there! We have many fun art projects planned for this fall. Projects like painting pumpkins and fun ideas to decorate our classroom, we can’t wait for you to see them!

 Please make sure your kids have warmer clothes as the temperatures are getting lower.

Please feel free to see me if you have any questions!

Blue Room News:

Last month in the Blue Room, we did a theme on puppies and we focused on the letters d, e, and f. We did a lot of art projects, read a lot of stories, and sang a lot of songs about both of those things. It was overall a very fun and successful month!
This month, we will focus on the letters G, H, and I, celebrate Halloween, and more. We have our Halloween party on October 19th. We hope to see you all there!
As always, if you have any questions, let us know!
Thanks!

Green Room News:

Throughout September, the Green Room friends had fun with the theme “Autumn Around Us.”  Our lessons on farms, gardens, bugs, and Autumn led to a variety of exciting activities.  Some of the children’s favorites included making a farm animal collage, exploring radishes, searching for bugs outside, and stomping through leaves.

This month we will continue the Autumn fun with lessons on Orchards, leaves, firefighters, and Halloween.

It’s jacket time!  Please remember to write your child’s name in any coat or other outerwear that you bring.  We don’t want the jackets to get mixed up.

Enjoy your Fall!

Yellow Room News:

Last month in The Yellow Room, we did units on school, sports, and shapes. We also celebrated the beginning of fall. Some of our activities included coloring a school bus, singing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”, making a shapes collage, reading Fresh Fall Leaves by Betsy Franco, and more. We also said good-bye to a lot of our friends this month. Cruz, Hadlee, and Weston went to The Orange Room, Scarlet went to The Starlight Room, and Porter and Raegan went to new schools. We miss them all, but know they are having fun with their new friends! We also welcomed Braxton and Arthur to The Yellow Room. It was overall a very fun and exciting month!

This month, we will do units on manners, rivers and boats, trains, and more. We will also celebrate Halloween. It looks to be a fun and exciting month!

As always, if you have any questions, let us know!

Thanks!

Orange Room News:

September was a great month as we welcomed some new friends to our classroom! Cruz, Weston, Hadlee, Dylon and Ishana have been a great addition to our group. Just as a reminder, I will be gone October 2nd-4th for my monthly drill. Miss Deana will be in the classroom along with a few subs while I am away!

This month we will be doing units on fall, weather, farm animals and Halloween! Throughout October we will be saying goodbye to Beckett, Bryson, Declan and Landry, but we hope that they have a great time with their friends in Red Room. We will also be welcoming a new friend to our room, Avery!

Please be checking the lost and found (blue bucket outside of our classroom) to see if any of the items belong to your child. Every day at pick up please take a look in or on your child’s cubby, as we often send home newsletters and art. This month I am going to start putting up a letter on our bulletin board outside of our classroom, to improve communication, so please be checking for new updates!

Red Room News:

Fall is finally here! Last month we learned about zoo animals and this month we will be learning about the season Fall, trees, apples, leaves, pumpkins, and celebrating Halloween. It is fire safety month so we will also be learning about that as well. We are welcoming Beckett, Bryson, Declan, and Landry from the orange room and a new friend Parker into our room this month.

Since the weather is changing and getting a little cooler, please make sure you are bringing a jacket/sweatshirt for your child. Please keep an extra set of clothes for your child in their cubbies in case of accidents or spills. Also, they can bring a blanket and pillow for nap time for them to be comfortable, we do have extras but not a lot.

If you have any questions, please contact me!

Rainbow Room News:

This month we will be finishing our Animal Habitats and then work our way to Weather.  The kids have been so interested in how storms work and when it’s going to snow… so why not dig a little deeper!

The weather is getting colder!  Remember to bring in a light jacket.

Picture day is October 10th for the Rainbow Room!  Fall Festival is October 24th at 6:30!

Starlight Preschool Room News

It is now October which means the weather can be all sorts of crazy! Please make sure to check the weather and dress your child appropriately to be outside so they are comfortable!  Please try to refrain from bringing toys from home to daycare, I understand you need to pick and choose your battles somedays, but it is very hard to keep track of a child’s toy in the mix of all of our toys.

Please to make sure your child always has an extra set of clothes in their cubby and a blanket and pillow for nap. If your child is in need of extra diapers or wipes, we will send home a reminder to you!

This month our Social/ Emotional themes are ‘focusing attention’, ‘self-talk’, ‘following directions’ and ‘asking for what you need or want’- these are weekly themes we work on and our monthly theme will be apples/trees/fall theme!

Our Fall Festival will be on October 24th and I would love to see everyone there!

Thank you! Miss Lauren and the Starlight staff
