Miss Tracey's Class

October 2015

Happy Fall!

Well, it's officially Fall, and we have officially passed the halfway point of the first nine weeks. Our first five weeks have been filled with getting to know one another, our classroom, and our routines.

During the month of October, we will be using our themes of Fall and Farm to continue working on some of our basic concepts, readiness skills, social skills, language skills, and motor skills.

In October, we will also be taking our annual trip to Smith Family Farms, holding Parent Teacher Conferences, and welcoming our classroom volunteers. October looks to be a fun-filled and family-filled month :)

Coming and Going

We have had a few changes in our morning class recently, and I wanted to share them with you. First of all, we would like to welcome Grace to our classroom; she started with us two weeks ago. Secondly, our morning Instructional Assistant, Miss Heidi, has returned to her former position. We will miss her but welcome Miss Meghann to our classroom, beginning tomorrow, Septemer 28.

PM Library

PM families, thank you for returning library books last week. Our regular library visits will be Thursdays, at 2:15. At this time, children may return current books and checkout new ones. Please mark Thursdays on your calendars :)

Now that we are somewhat settled into our routine, we would love to have you join us in the classroom for volunteering. This is a great opportunity for you to see what your child is doing in the classroom, see who your child is playing with each day, and take home some ideas, as well. For us, it is wonderful to have extra hands, too. We understand if your schedule does not allow you to come into the classroom, so there are other opportunities available throughout the year, beginning with helping to make playdoh for the classroom.

We hope you will all be able to find something that works for you. Please just click on the button, below, to get started.
