Mrs. Radtke's 4K Classroom News
Week of November 4th-8th
Theme of the Week - Fall/Leaves
This week we will be learning about fall and what happens in the fall. We will learn about how the weather feels in the Fall. We also will learn about the trees turning colors and falling off the trees. This week on Tuesday we will be taking a nature walk outside and collecting leaves to do a project with them related to the book "Leaf Man" by Lois Ehlert.
Last week Tuesday we all went to Schuster's farm and got to explore animals, go on a hayride, and pick out their very own pumpkin. Below are pictures of how much fun we had at Schuster's Farm.
Letter of the Week - "T"
This week we are learning the letter T along with the sound, action and how to write it. To make the action with the Jolly Phonics song below, you move your head from side to side while saying the /t/ sound.

I am in the process of creating a website for our 4K class to keep parents updated, provide parent resources, as well posting pictures and newsletters. A technology form was sent home to parents to fill out to give permission to use pictures of their children on teacher websites. I plan on posting pictures of what we are doing in class without using any names. If you do not want any pictures of your child on the website, please let me know. I look forward to completing the website so that I can share even more great information with you.
