We are thoroughly enjoying our apple unit. Our apple tasting party included tasting Fuji, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala, Honey Crisp, and Granny Smiths. By the way, did you know that apples are part of a flower?
Happy October! The month will pass by very quickly and there is much going on at our preschool. During the month of October, we will conclude our apple studies and the children will be introduced to spiders and webs. They will learn why spiders are very important to man, and why they are not insects. We will also introduce the bat, which is a nocturnal mammal.
The children will hear the beautiful story of Stellaluna by Janell Cannon, about a fruit bat. With each topic, we introduce to the children, we will include counting, painting, songs, fingerplay, fine motor activities and literature. We will also be learning about the skeletal system, pumpkins and Halloween. They will also be introduced to the upper and lower-case letters B, J, P, S, G, and X. Sight words this month will include: girl, of, is, an, & and.
Our Halloween party and parade will conclude our October learning. The party will be on Wednesday, October 28th.
Enjoy October with your children. Love them, read to them and spend time with them. Please allow them to practice cutting and coloring with crayons at home. Thanks again for giving Mrs. Shirk and I the privilege of working with your children. They are doing an outstanding job!
