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 Thanksgiving art projects and we are celebrating Thanksgiving and more.

And also, thanks to everyone who joined us at our party on October 19th it was so much fun.

Green Room News:

Throughout October, the Green Room friends had fun learning about Autumn around us.  The children enjoyed activities such as playing with ice, crunching leaves, and feeling the rain.  Our special units on fire fighters and Halloween were especially exciting, In addition to having a fire truck visit our school, we also dressed up like fire fighters and explored a ladder and tunnel obstacle course.  For Halloween, the children played with monster goo, explored pumpkins, and had fun with masks.

This month’s theme is “Things For Which We are Thankful.”  With that, we will be talking about families, friends, pets, and Thanksgiving.  We look forward to another great month.

Ms, Rosemary, Miss Kerrigan, and the Green Room Team.

Last month in The Yellow Room, we did units on manners, rivers and boats, trains, teddy bears, and more. We also celebrated Halloween.  We said good-bye to Avery as he transitioned to The Orange Room. We will miss him, but we know that he will have fun with his new friends. We also welcomed Amina and Eissa from The Green Room and a friend who is new to the center, Brooklyn. It was overall a very fun and successful month!  This month, we will do units on feelings, families, and more. We will also celebrate Thanksgiving. It looks to be a fun and exciting month!

Please also watch for a conference sign-up sheet to be posted soon. Conferences will be offered November 19th to the 21st and also the 26th. Conferences are not required, but it does provide a good opportunity to discuss your child’s progress with their teacher. Progress reports are sent home even if you decide not to do a conference.

Thanks!

Orange Room News:

October flew by for us! We had units on forest animals, fall and of course Halloween. This month we will have units on healthy eating and exercise, Thanksgiving and winter. In October we had some new friends join us, Avery and Weston. Orange room has been so excited to have them. This month we will be having Braylee join us!

As the weather becomes more unpredictable please send your children with appropriate clothing. We still go outside when it is wet and cold, and only have so many extra jackets, hats and mittens. Please keep checking the blue “Lost and Found” bucket outside of our room for your child’s items. While we often have to pick your battles, please do not send toys from home with your child. It is difficult to keep track of toys from home along with all of our toys in the classroom.

I would also like to remind all of you that fall conferences are coming up. There is a sign-up sheet on the classroom door, if none of those times work please let me know so that we can work something out. If you would not like a conference please fill out the sheet provided on top of your cubby and return it to me.

Last month, we learned about the season Fall which included apples, leaves, fire safety, and of course we celebrated Halloween. This month we will be learning about farm animals, construction, there was an old lady who swallowed…and Thanksgiving. We have not added any new friends into our room, but some may be getting close to transitioning to Rainbow Room.  In the beginning of the month, November 1st-8th, I will be gone on a family vacation to Florida, but my subs will be Ms. Alicia and Miss Sydney which the kids know very well.

Reminder: We are closed on November 28th and 29th for Thanksgiving!

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.
