Ee is for one exciting week! We began our week with a new song about Elmo the Elephant and a mystery box full of things that made us think of “E”. We built our new letter with our wood pieces and added to it an egg!

The boys looked exceptional in their black on Wednesday, and we had fun with this color as we explored shadows in many ways! We are continuing to add to our shape family each week. See if your son can tell you another name for a diamond!

Our unit on nocturnal animals is interesting and fun. We have been making our own animals as we read about them. You will love looking at your son’s creations!

We hope to see you all at our PK Harvest Party next Friday! Have an excellent weekend!

We have been reading new books and learning new songs about fall! The boys have worked hard during this short week!  We have been reviewing our shapes, colors, and letters this week.  Please use your wood pieces to build A, B, C and D at home. 

We hope you all have a restful fall break. We’ll see you next Tuesday!

It has been a dog-gone great week! We stayed busy designing Dalmatian dogs and sorting big, fluffy dots. We played with dump trucks and dug for dinosaur bones in the sand table! We have practiced building D’s and singing with Daisy Doll. We even snacked on some delicious donuts on Friday! 

This week, we began our study on nocturnal animals, and we learned some neat things about lightning bugs and owls. See if your son can tell you to which family the lightning bug belongs!

It has been so nice to play in the cool, autumnal weather. Everyone was delighted to see the first few signs of our new season outside during recess! What a dynamite week!
