Mixed-up Chameleons News-Today we learned all about circles, played a shape game and participated in the “shape challenge” of drawing some shapes.  We read the book “My World of Color” by Margaret Wise Brown and finished our study on the letter “I”.  For writing workshop, we practice writing our names, uppercase “I”‘s and lowercase “I”‘s.  For Gym we played “Turkey on the Farm”, which was a big hit with the class.   We read Earl the Squirrel by Don Freeman, sang “Earl Squirrel” and “I’m a Nut”.

Very Hungry Caterpillar and Very Busy Spider News:  (Mrs. Sandy & Mrs. Mandy)-  This week we went “Inside Autumn” with the letter “I”!   We read books about leaves, and learned songs about the leaves falling to the ground.  We learned about apples, read books about apples, and learned some songs and rhymes about apples.  Next week, we will going on a “Journey” with the letter “J”.

Friday Enrichment News-This week the children will be learning all about Thanksgiving. We will talk about what it means to be thankful, how we can show thanks and of course all the wonderful food!  The letter this week is J so remember to bring in your J item!

Brown Bear/Polar Bear News:  November is here.  We have already started practicing some songs to sing for you at the Thanksgiving Feast.  We are singing “The Leaves are Falling Down,” “I Eat Turkey,” and “Have You Ever Seen a Turkey?”  The kids love our “Mr. Turkey” felt board story and our “Apple Surprise” finger play.  We also have been having fun getting up and moving to “Scarecrow, Scarecrow, Turn Around.”  With all of that, we have still managed to squeeze in a visit from our horse puppet to talk about the letter H and to see what was inside our letter mystery box – a house!  For art, we have fingerpainted some fall leaves on some trees, glued popcorn and leaves onto our corn, and glued fall leaves on our bare trees.  See you next Tuesday!
