It was a busy week learning new songs about colors, shapes and Benjamin Bunny! “B” week has been full of fun activities! The boys are coloring and gluing! They were busy building birds, sorting bears by color and size, and gluing beans on bears! We even learned about our first nocturnal animal – bats. Ask your son if he can tell you something cool about this flying mammal!

Singing about Trixie Triangle helped us learn more about this shape. We noticed that building it with wood pieces was similar to our very first letter - an A has a triangle, too!

On Friday, we got to wave good-bye to our sixth grade buddies as they left for St. Louis on the big buses! It was an exciting time for the whole school!

We hope you have a great first weekend of fall!

This week was our kick-off for learning the alphabet! We are using our thinking routines to make connections between our wood pieces and building letters. We have practiced with letter Aa all week! We hope you have cut out the wood pieces we sent on Monday and are busy practicing at home as well.

Items from our mystery box help us develop sound associations for each letter, and we identified many items that begin with the /a/ sound. Apple Annie starts with A, and the boys explored apples in many ways. We snacked on applesauce, read about apples, and learned a new prayer about apple seeds! See if your son can tell you whether an apple is a red light or green light snack or if an apple comes from a farm or a factory.

The best part of our week was getting to meet our Sixth grade buddies for the very first time! They played in centers with us, and we are so excited to see them off to St. Louis at the end of the month!

We are looking forward to our special “Dogs with Dad” event next week!

We hope you all enjoyed our Labor Day holiday! The boys have done a great job learning so many new things this week. We are very proud of how well they are adjusting. We hope they have shared some songs with you that we have been singing!

We are using our thinking routines to make connections between our wood pieces and building shapes. Making our very own version of Mat Man was really fun, but making our “body boy” snack was the best!

We have “spied” circles all over our school and thought about many items that are shaped like a circle. Our mystery box was full of things that made us realize that circles are all around!

Please make plans to be at the PDS Jamboree tomorrow! It begins at 9:30 am and promises to be fun for the whole family. The PK boys are already excited about the face painting, bounce houses, and yummy food! This event is not to be missed!

We hope you have a nice weekend.
