October Curriculum Connections
Check out the linked Curriculum Connections below to see what our Timberwolves will be working on in each subject area during the month of October! We want to share the learning topics at all of the grade levels so that you are familiar with what topics and content are taught this month! Your child's teacher is always happy to provide more details should you have questions!
FALL COSTUME PARADE AND CLASSROOM CELEBRATIONS
On October 29th, we will have a costume parade and fall parties in our classrooms. Our costume parade will begin at 2:45 and parties will follow from 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm. Students will be allowed to wear a costume to school all day. We want to encourage students to wear a costume or a simplified version of their costume to school on this day instead of bringing a costume to school as changing into a costume isn’t included in our plans on this day. Costumes need to be school appropriate!
Pumpkin Book Characters!
It is October and that means pumpkins are everywhere! If you would like to participate in an optional Pumpkin Book Character Activity and maybe even win a prize here is what you will need to do:
- Choose your favorite book character and a small or medium pumpkin
- Decorate the pumpkin to look like your favorite book character.
You can decorate it any way you like, paint it, glue things onto it, add any fun details you would like.
Please just don’t carve the pumpkin as they will be on display for a couple weeks, and we do not want them rotting!
Pumpkins can be turned in anytime, just bring them to the library. This project is voluntary but can be a lot of family fun. Check Google and Pinterest for inspiration. Pumpkins will be on display in the library and sent home on Friday October 29th. We cannot wait to see your fabulous creations.
Please include a piece of paper with your pumpkin that includes your name, teacher and the name of your pumpkin character. All participants will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to the upcoming book fair. Any questions please email Mrs. Barr at email@example.com
