Social Studies

In Social Studies we have been talking about respect and friendship. We have read My Mouth is a Volcano and Friends. Also we are talking about being nice to friends and respecting others.

Environmental Science

Please help your nature explorer have a safe and fun time outdoors by wearing athletic shoes and easy care clothing to school every day!

Your child has been using their senses to taste fruits and vegetables and using the leftover cores and peels to help our compost bins grow to make new “special” soil. The compost will be fun to watch when we add the class Halloween pumpkin and observe how the compost bin changes over the next couple months. We will also take a “sensory” hike where the students explored the sights, smells, and sounds of our Lamplighter creek area.

This fall we will be observing and learning about cycles in our outdoor education areas. Composting our pumpkins, caterpillar-butterfly observations and watching growing gourds are some of the many cycles we will be watching right in our own Lamplighter gardens!

Ask your child….. “Tell me about cycles you’ve found at Lamplighter.”

P.E.

In PE we have been practicing throwing. We are playing games that help us become better throwers. Ask your child to tell you about the different throwing games we have been playing.
