I cannot believe we are reaching the end of October! The children are all growing and learning every day and Ms. Militello and I are so proud of each one of them.
The children are all settling into our new routines. They are learning to follow and listen to several steps of directions; to write their names on each of their papers and also to be responsible for their own items and work. It is exciting to see all they accomplish each day.
This will be an exciting week due to the upcoming Halloween holiday! I will incorporate many Halloween themes into our daily lessons. We have been learning the rhyme, “Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate”...so look out for some fun experiences with that. Stay tuned for an upcoming video!
Friday, students may come to school dressed in their costumes with no Halloween masks but yes, protective masks! Please also send in a treat bucket or basket. Don’t forget to send in a peanut free bag of candy!
This week we will learn 3 more sight words, very, me and look. Please continue to work on ALL the sight words daily. As I add more to the list, it is harder to master the new ones. I’m really very impressed as to how well all the children are doing this far! Keep up the hard work!
