We’ve had a fun week in JK with pumpkins as our theme!
Important Dates and Reminders
October 31st – Halloween Parade, 10:00 am
JK will walk in the school parade around the block. Wear costumes to school, please pack extra play clothes if your child stays for Enrichment.
For JK parents who would like to use the morning drop off line, we have 8th grade students waiting to walk JK students all the way to classrooms.
Please send your child to school with a warm coat, hat and gloves. We will head outside to play early each day. It is chilly out there in the morning!
At our Craft Center, we put on our scariest faces and made frightful Halloween pumpkins. Check them out in our JK pumpkin patch outside the classrooms.
At our Math Center, we worked on patterning with pumpkins and spiders.
At our Literacy Center, we sang the Jolly Phonics song to learn the sound the letter ”F” makes. We made a long list of words that begin with the letter “F.” Favorite stories of the week were: “The Recess Queen” by Alexis O’Neill and Laura Huliska-Beith and “The Biggest Pumpkin Ever” by Steven Kroll and Jane E. Gerver, illustrated by Jeni Bassett.
At our Writing Center, we learned to write the letter “F.” We practiced “F” by using clay to form the letter and practiced in our workbooks.
At our Science Center, we learned many interesting facts about pumpkin seeds and how they grow. We plan more fun pumpkin activities in the next two weeks.
At our Sensory Center, we rolled and shaped play dough.
At our Dramatic Play Center, we were busy taking orders at our JK 104 restaurant.
In Religion, we read the bible story of how Jesus welcomed the little children to learn from him.
Social and Emotional Learning: Identifying Feelings
We learned how to tell how other people are feeling by looking for clues on their faces and bodies.
We sang and danced in Music with Mrs. Chada. We had a blast running and playing ball on the field. We played in the sand, climbed and slid down the slides in the Tot Lot.
