News for the week of Monday, October 8th

Happy October!

Our school year is off to a great start! Every day we are settling into our routines and learning new things! October will be a busy fun-filled month. I hope your child was able to read the fun "cookie jar" book to someone at home this past weekend!

Fire Safety Theme

This week we are learning about fire safety. We will be talking about how we can stay safe from fire. We are even planning a special presentation with real firefighters from our community this Thursday, October 11th. We will be making a "Firefighter's Ladder" cooking project this week as well! Click on the link below to see some fire safety songs we will sing in class:

Jolly Phonics

Our letter sound of the week is "T". The Jolly Phonics action for the letter /t/ sound is to turn your head from side to side, as if you are watching tennis, and say t,t,t,t.

If you would like to chaperone on this field trip we would love to have you! Each chaperone needs to fill out the school volunteer application and the chaperone responsibility form.
