Red Robins November News

Orange Preschool

 

Look what we learned last month

We are having a blast here in the Red Robins Class!  October was pretty amazing and although we are excited for November, we are sad to say goodbye to all of our ghosts, goblins, and spook kee kee kee fun!

         In review, the month of October was full of music (singing), dramatic play (acting out famous-Halloween spooks), and of course let’s not forget the use of thee imagination (fun Halloween stories)!  With incorporating these three instruments (music, drama, imagination) it helps foster creative thought, while enhancing self-confidence with the ability to conquer the fear of speaking/performing in front of a group of peers.

         While we had a blast with these three instruments, we decided to not let the fun die down and implement them in other areas of learning.  That being said, with the change of season we gracefully let ourselves “Fall” into the magical world of science, where we had a lesson on the life cycle of leaves.  As the children became more and more fascinated by the fact that leaves change in color, going from green to the beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow, we decided to do a smash up.  Taking the science lesson and mixing it with language/literacy and phonics through music!  PARENTS in order to get the full effect of what I am saying please take the time to ask your child to spell any of the four colors.  I can assure you, the same three things I did, my students: amazement, an overwhelming sense of pride, and last but not least, you will have all four colors stuck in your head! LOL

         With music in the air and imaginations running wild, the Red Robins have had no trouble diving into class work.  Whether it be strengthening our fine motor skills while working on our letter formations (writing skills) of A-E or mastering our first names and introducing our last names.  The Red Robins have had an enthusiastic attitude towards learning and have even prompted their own group time discussions on sharing and respecting one another!

         In closing, we are all being the very best we can be, while having a RAAAD time doing so! 

 

What we will learn this month

In the month of November we will be fostering a family atmosphere even more than usual!  We will discuss what it means to be thankful and discover just who and what we are thankful for.  Respect will be a key factor in many of our lessons this month.  So parents, “again”, please do keep us informed of any disrespectful displays of behavior at home.

         November 10th marks our 50th day of school, we will be celebrating all week 50’s style!

         On top of the 50th day of school, we will be displaying our patriotic side as well.
