No birthdays this month :)

A spectacular September!

September came and left so quickly! I guess time really does fly when you are having fun!


Having fun while learning some very important things is what we do. This month we had an awesome field trip to Dillows ATA, Kuna Park, and Black Canyon Gourmet Popcorn. Delicious! Check out more pictures from the field trips here.


We had more lessons on kindness, doing nice things for other people, and being a good friend. We made "love rocks." We used them as reminders to do something kind for somebody else.


In reality they are inspired by a woman in Forest Grove, Oregon (near my sister's home town) who is choosing joy and love in the wake of a tragic accident where she lost her two daughters. Please note: We did not discuss that in class but I was very moved by it and thought you might be interested. People all over the world have made and left these love rocks around for people to find just to spread joy. They all have the link https://www.facebook.com/lovedrenched on them with more information about the process. I found one at the Texaco on Meridian and Victory!


Our Stone Soup was a hit and everybody tried it! Almost everybody wanted seconds. We learned about seeds and guessed which seed grew into which plant, (most were from my garden) read Stone Soup, and made our own soup while acting out the story. YUM! It was a busy month and seeing the pictures below will tell you more about what we did.


We are looking forward to October and many preschoolers have already explained, in great detail, what they are going to be for Halloween. We have a party in class, but please don't wear costumes. Watch for lessons on bats, spiders, pumpkins, monsters, emotions, and whatever else we find interesting to explore.


We have begun our alphabet books but they will not go home until completed.


Thank you for trusting me with your little ones; it is an awesome adventure!
