Ms. Jo's update 10-2-17

Ms. Jo’s and Ms. Stephanie’s Weekly update for Oct. 2, 2017

Hi Families,

Thank you so much for coming in this week for conferences.  I enjoyed talking and sharing with you about your preschooler.  Each student received a Clifford the Big Red Dog book in their folders this week.  Our class ordered so many scholastic books that each child received a complimentary gift.  We will not have a book order for October since we had a school book fair but we will offer it again in November. Thank you again for participating in both!  Here are some of the highlights from the week.  

We wrapped up our STEM unit on Exercise/Health/Nutrition.  We made an exercise video for our design challenge.  I’m in the process of editing the video and my goal is to share it with  you sometime soon. All three classes had a bubble party for reaching their star number. We built the letters O,Q and number 6 with wood lines and curves this week.  We read several books related to our STEM unit and said good-bye to our grocery store/market in dramatic play. Art and using materials in the prototype area is always a favorite for all classes.  We are getting low on materials so if you have small boxes, toilet and paper towel rolls plus any size lids we would greatly appreciate it.  We could also use pom poms and feathers.  Thank you for consideration.  We have a lot going on next week so please make sure you look at the important dates.  Next week our focus will be on the season Fall.  If your student would like to bring in a leaf, gord, pinecone, or other nature materials that represent the season we would love to add it to our nature area in Science.  Please only have your student bring in one item.  Thank you.

No STEM Unit, we will be focusing on the season Fall/Autumn
