It's Pumpkin Time!

Oct. 16-20
Dear Preschool Families,

This week we will be learning about letter Pp. We will also be listening for the beginning sound in words and separating the beginning sound from the rest of the word : C at . We will be introducing 10 frames for counting and putting the correct amount of “pumpkins” on the matching number. We will also be practicing writing numbers 1-5 and making a counting book.

In addition to these preschool skills, we will be learning a 5 Little Pumpkins fingerplay. Students will have the opportunity to participate in acting this out. We’ve already seen some great acting this year with our 5 Little Monkeys song!

We’ve been waiting for the leaves to change and begin to fall. The time is finally here! We plan to go on a scavenger hunt with a short walk around the neighborhood. We plan to observe the leaves changing colors, the crunch under our feet, and look for a variety of items including pinecones, squirrels, birds, etc. We will go based on the nicest weather for the week.

Later in the week I will be opening our paint center for the first time. I haven’t told the kiddos yet, but they may start coming home a little bit orange We try to train them, but some really get into their art!

Have a great week!
Mrs. Sifert

Go Broncos!

Oct. 2-6

Dear Preschool Families,

This week we will be talking about Homecoming. Along with our special dress – up days (listed below), we will be learning about using our SeeSaw program, continue work on learning the letters in our names, writing our names, counting, and much more!

We will be focusing on letter Hh this week for Homecoming and helmet. We will be learning some cheers, and much more!

The morning class will be attending a pep assembly on Monday morning to kick-off the week. The afternoon class will watch the parade on Friday afternoon. It should be a fun week for all! Hopefully some of the students will get to attend the game on Friday night!

We are asking that you send $2.00 to school with your child by Friday to help cover the cost of our three classroom parties (Fall, Winter, and Valentine parties). This money will be given to the room parents to help with expenses.

The students are really learning the routines and we are ready to dig in to our preschool social and academic skills! It was nice to visit with some of you at conferences. If you didn’t attend, it is fine. I’ll keep in touch if there is an issue. Please feel free to call or email me anytime with questions or concerns! I’m looking forward to seeing the students learn and grow throughout the school year.

Have a great week!
Mrs. Sifert
