Well we are so happy to be back to school. It has been a long time since March 13 when we closed due to COVID-19. The teachers did a fabulous job putting together a virtual curriculum which the children enjoyed, but we are so happy to be physically back in school.
The children have been adjusting so well and are having so much fun playing with all new materials, making new friends and enjoying the outdoor time with the beautiful weather we’ve been having.
October promises to be chock full of great Autumn activities. Some of our themes this month include The Farm where the children will explore all kinds of animals that are on a farm. Some of the animals will be pigs, cows and horses. They will also be learning about pumpkins…what’s inside a pumpkin, do they sink or do they float, have relay races with pumpkins and paint them among many other activities. They will also be talking about objects that they collect on a nature walk and then making a collage with these objects which include leaves, acorns, grass and any other things they collect along their walk.
Our author of the month will be Ed Emberley who writes wonderful books such as Go Away Big Green Monster, Glad Monster Sad Monster and Nighty Night Little Monster among others. They all have a message for the children and have great illustrations. Mr. Emberly will also be introduced on Letter E day which reinforces the letter. Speaking of letters, the children will learn about Letters D, E and F this month.
We plan on having a wonderful month which will culminate in celebrating Halloween. All day the children will engage in Halloween activities and their day will end dancing to The Monster Mash.
We currently have a couple of 3 year old openings in our T/TH class. If you are interested please call 882-1041 and we can set up a tour.
Happy Autumn to you all. What a beautiful and colorful season to be in New England.
