News for the week of November 4th

Fall Theme

This week we will be starting a fall theme! We will be discussing the changes we see in the weather, plants, and trees in the fall. What do animals do in the fall to get ready for winter? What do our families do around the house to get ready for winter? We will be going on a nature walk this week. We will see the leaves falling and hear them crunching under our feet. We will be making leaf art projects and sorting and graphing leaves by color.

Jolly Phonics

Our letter sound of the week is "T". The Jolly Phonics action for the letter /t/ sound is to turn your head from side to side, as if you are watching tennis, and say t,t,t,t. See the video below to watch the letter "T" song.

*Happy November! Thanks to the parents that went with us on the field trip to Schuster's Farm. Also, thanks to all parents who sent in treats or helped out for our Fall Festival! The students looked great in their costumes and had a fun time on Thursday.

* November Scholastic book orders are due on Tuesday, November 12th. Order online at www.scholastic.com/bookclubs or send the paper order form back to school. If you would ever like the books to be a gift, please write me a note or e-mail. Otherwise, they will be sent home in your child's folder/backpacks and your child might see them.

* Tuesday, November 26th is our "Thanksgiving Feast". This week I will be sending home reminder slips for those of you who signed up on the volunteer form. Please let me know if you are unable to volunteer for what you signed up for.
