September 12 - 16 Newsletter

September Theme

We are starting our year off with the theme "All About Me." This week, we started exploring ourselves, talking about things that we like to do, what we like to eat, and some of our favourite things!

We made handprint art in both the AM and PM classes, and began exploring paint and mixing colours. We also traced our bodies and looked at how big we all are! These outlines will be added to and hung around the room in the coming weeks. It is exciting to see how each child reacted to seeing their traced body on the big sheet of paper!

Home Away From Home

To go with our September theme, I was hoping to create a "Home Away From Home" board in our classroom that all of the children can contribute to. I would like to hang family pictures (of each child with their parents and/or siblings), doing things that they enjoy while they aren't at school, and a picture of their favourite book. We will be talking about families in the coming week, and having these pictures would be a fun way to have each child introduce themselves and their siblings/parents to the rest of the class.

If possible, these pictures can be emailed to me at your convenience, and I will print them out and hang them for the children to look at. Thank you in advance for helping us create fun and beautiful spaces for our children.

Snack This Week!

Thank you so much to KARTER for bringing in snack for the PM class this week! We were lucky enough to sample homemade banana chocolate chip muffins, a popcorn mix with jelly beans, chocolate chips, and marshmallows, and lots of fresh fruit! All of our children enjoyed eating snack each day!

The AM class sampled different yogurts, goldfish crackers, fruit cups, cheese strings, bear paw cookies, and animal crackers, to name a few! All of the children are excited to use their personalized place mats at snack time, and are all using excellent manners when requesting and choosing what they would like to eat!

We look forward to the snacks that Luke and Skyler will bring this week!

Snack Schedule

Please note when your snack week is. If your child takes the bus, please feel free to send one day at a time (so they are not overloaded), or let me know if you require support getting them to school.

Photos of our Week!

Please let me know if you would like copies of the photos emailed to you. I love documenting the activities that are happening in the classroom, and would be happy to share them with everyone! The children also love seeing pictures of themselves, and can tell you all about what we were doing when each photo was taken.

Bus Information

We are excited that we have so many children who are riding the bus this year! It is a great opportunity to gain independence and learn about different jobs in the community.

If your child is taking the bus this year, please send their bus information by email, so that I can have a compiled list, which makes it easier to pick them up each morning and ensure they get on the correct bus in the afternoon.

If there is a change in their normal transportation, please let me know as soon as possible, so I can ensure that there is no confusion at the end of the day and departure can be smooth and stress free for your child. Thank you!
