We have made it through the Halloween frenzy! Thanks to all families for joining us for our Halloween concert. I thought the performance was one of the best ever. We had lots of activities for the rest of the day. We decorated clementines to look like jack-o-lanterns, enjoyed a festive snack, tried to bite donuts on a string, and played “stick the nose on the pumpkin”. What fun!
It’s now November—time for the Macarena Months again and the beginning of a unit on food and harvest. In the upcoming week we will be studying pumpkins and apples, doing some apple tasting and predicting whether a pumpkin will float.
In our letterbooks we’re continuing to work in book O. There will be no homework finding pictures of things beginning with O. Instead look for some special Thanksgiving homework sent home at the end of the week. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it.
