News for the week of September 26th

Apple Theme

We had so much apple fun last week we are going to continue it into next week! I hope your child was able to play the fun "Where's the Worm?" math game with someone at home this weekend. We will be making more apple art projects this week. This Tuesday we will do a class cooking project where we make applesauce for our snack! If possible please send in one apple by Monday. Check out the video below for a fun apple song based on the book Ten Apples Up on Top!

Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar?

Last week we learned the silly poem “Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar”. This week we have a special surprise class book that is based on this poem. We will read the book everyday in class this week and on Friday your child gets to take a copy home to keep. This book really helps students learn and review the names of their friends in class. Be sure to have your child read it to you!

Jolly Phonics

Our Jolly Phonics letter of the week is "F" The action for the letter "F" sound is to place one hand above the other, and lower the top hand as if an inflatable fish is deflating, and say f,f,f,f,f,f. Below is a two videos of the Jolly Phonics letter "F" song we will learn in class!

* If possible please send in 1 apple by this Monday for our special applesauce cooking project!

* Picture retake day is this Tuesday. Please let me know if your child needs retakes.

* This week I will be sending out the new snack calendar for October. In making the calendar I try really hard to space out your child's snack days equally. However, with birthday celebrations and "star week" snack days sometimes your child's snack days may be closer together. If you ever feel like you cannot bring a snack for any reason on the day your child is assigned please don't hesitate to contact me. We have extra snacks just for that reason. I realize with adding Wednesdays to our schedule this year that I will be asking for even more snack days from you. I don't want this to be a burden so please contact me if you have any questions.

*We sent out permission slips last week for our upcoming field trip to Schuster's Farm (on Tuesday, October 25th). Please send back the permission slip and field trip fee as soon as possible.
