October is Almost Over in the 3's!
Good afternoon 3's families,
We had another wonderful week with your little ones! We played outside in this gorgeous weather and got to try some new things in the classroom as well. This morning we carved a small pumpkin, his name is Jack! Pumpkin Jack was placed in a special container with some dirt and leaves that the children helped collect. He will stay with us for the rest of the school year! We will get to watch the entire pumpkin life cycle as the pumpkin decomposes over the winter, sprouts leaves in the spring, and then grows flowers that will eventually become pumpkins! Be sure to ask your child about Pumpkin Jack!
As a reminder, we do not allow Halloween costumes or candy at school. Next Tuesday we do have some fall themed fun planned though!
What’s new this week?
Book- Pete the Cat: Five Little Pumpkins by James Dean. Ask your child to sing the pumpkin song Pete taught us! We also read Pumpkin Jack by Will Hubbell.
Art- We used puffy paint to make Jack-o-lantern faces, which are now hanging up in the hallway.
Easel- Using paint sticks, we painted Pete the Cat with his pumpkins. The paint sticks were a big hit!
Math- Roll and color pumpkin game. After rolling a die, the children matched that number to a number on the paper and colored them in.
Writing- We are getting lots of cutting practice at the writing table by trying to cut along dotted lines on pieces of paper with pumpkins and ghosts on them.
We hope you enjoy the rest of your week and have a wonderful weekend!
