October 16, 2015 News Flash from Miss Lori’s Class!

Dear Pre-K Families,

The upper and lower case “Cc” was introduced this week.  We discussed the sound the letter makes and thought of all kinds of words that begin with the letter “C.”  In addition, each child made a “Cowboy Curly” puppet and wrote the upper and lower case “C.”  We read books that begin with the letter of the week as well.  A favorite was order clomid online reviews If You Give A Cat A Cupcake by Laura Numeroff.

I want to thank all of our families for helping your children with the wonderful homework that I am seeing each day!  Your children are always so excited to take their homework out of their folder to show to me.  I love all of the different pictures that I see for each letter as well.  Your children really seem to enjoy Show and Tell.  They can’t wait to stand in front of their classmates and “show and tell” all about their special item from home.  Their friends then have a chance to ask and answer questions all about it.  Surprisingly, the boys and girls are not shy while they are standing in front of the class!!

The excitement is in the air ever since we changed the month on our calendar to October!  We all know that Halloween is coming.  We have been doing a spooky pumpkin finger play with the class, which they love, although, they scream so loud at the end each time!

We will be making large pumpkin people which will decorate our classroom.  We will be making a pumpkin name puzzle next week as well.  Our class has been talking all about pumpkins- where they grow and what is inside.  We talked about opening up a class pumpkin and seeing what is inside.  We are going to roast the seeds inside as well as cook something with the pulp from the pumpkin.  Speaking of cooking, we made cat cookies for the letter “Cc.”  The cookies were delicious!

Our number book is well under way.  We will be finishing it next week.  Wait until you see it!  The book is all about fall.  Every number page requires the children to recognize the number, write the number, and count up to that number.  They use their fine motor skills to cut, glue, write, color, and paint each page in the book.  This book is a special work of art and is great keepsake for your child and you!

Lastly, we read the book where can you buy Premarin Corduroy by Don Freeman.  The boys and girls decorated Corduroy’s face and cut out his outfit all by themselves!  Their bears are adorable.  We also have huge leaves decorating our room.  The children used fall color finger paints to decorate them.  Our classroom looks so festive!

Enjoy your weekend!

Fondly,

Miss Lori and Miss Kristine
