We had a magnificent week in JK! We introduced the letter Mm and we made moon letter cards with glow in the dark paint. We played marble run, built with magna tiles and played with Mad Matter. We read “Glad Monster, Sad Monster” by Ed Emberle and discussed our feelings and emotions.

We continued our farm unit this week and focused on animals. We made chicken hats and discussed predators. The boys were daddy hens and spent the day protecting their egg from the sneaky, sly fox who would sneak in and grab their eggs. The boys had fun building chicken coops and fox traps! We did a STEAM activity to go along with “The Three Little Pigs.” We “built” houses and tried to see whose house would not be huffed and puffed and blown down! We finished our farm unit with a delicious Harvest Breakfast. We had foods from the farm and enjoyed music from Mr. Hancock. Thank you to all the party parents who helped provide for our party!

Next week is the PDS Book Fair. The books will be set up in Baber Gym and our day to visit is Tuesday at 12:00. Please pick your son up from our classroom.

Looking Ahead:

Tuesday, November 4th- Book Fair visit 12:00-12:30

Thursday, November 14th- Report Cards sent home

Friday, November 22nd- Thanksgiving Play 9:00 (Dismissal following the program. Aftercare will be available for those enrolled.)

What a Nice week in JK! We introduced the letter Nn, we made noodle necklaces, circled N’s in the newspaper and read “The Best Nest” and created our nest letter card.

Hi ho the dairy-o! We have loved diving deeper into our study of the farm and studied farm animals this week. We learned how milk gets from a cow to carton, and we even “milked” our own cow and churned cream into butter. We got to taste our hard work at lunch! Mmmm…. We learned about pigs and the foods we get from them and even got to try some yummy bacon! We will wrap up our farm unit next week with a Harvest Breakfast!

We were also busy getting ready for our Grandparents’ Day program. We celebrated 70 years of Spirit and Song at PDS. Thank you to all the grandparents and special visitors that came!

Reminder for Nurse Alice Ball:

With Halloween coming up, we ask that ALL treats of any kind MUST be on the nut-free list.  Any candy/cookie/cupcake label has to clearly state that the product was made in a peanut and tree nut free facility…any product with language that says something like "made in a facility that also processes nuts" is not allowed.  

Looking Ahead:

Thursday, October 31st: Harvest Breakfast 11:00-12:00

Friday, November 22nd: Thanksgiving Play
