Mixed-up Chameleons News-Today we learned all about apples, squirrels, acorns and circles!  We read “Dinofours:  It’s Apple Picking Day” and worked on wrapping up our assessment of our general skills by evaluating shape recognition, color recognition, address, phone number, birthday, age, name, etc.  Next Friday we will continue our shape days with a triangle.

Very Hungry Caterpillar and Very Busy Spider News:  This week we went “Inside Autumn” with the letter “I”!  We started out by discussing the four seasons and listed what makes autumn different than the other seasons.  We learned about leaves changing colors and falling to the ground, scarecrows, and squirrels storing their nuts.  Next week, we will be learning about healthy eating with our “J” is for “Junk Food” unit.

Friday Enrichment News-  The kids really enjoyed our “monster” of a day.  We sang, danced and made monster crafts.  This week we will be moving onto fairy tales.  Our book will be “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” and “My First Fairy Tales” by Tomie dePaola.   Our letter of the week is J, so remember bringing in those J pictures!

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 stamped with apples and glued popcorn and leaves onto our corn.  See you next Tuesday!
