This Week In 4K...

  • We will put the life cycle of a pumpkin in order. (Start to use ordinal words with your child...1st, 2nd, 3rd)
  • Thursday we will carve a pumpkin and see what is inside of it. We will do an investigation and talk about the size, whether it floats or sinks, and the texture.
  • At community circle, we will read Everybody Feels Scared by: Jane Bingham. Continue talking about feelings with your child. It is ok to feel scared about things. We will discuss and tell one thing each of us is scared of.
