The kiddos have been singing their little hearts out practicing for their big night tonight! Please have the children here at 6:15. We will meet in the upper elementary.
We have been busy making Christmas crafts this week! We have also explored Germany, and the enrichment friends made German gingerbread houses with posterboard and LOTS of glitter. Did I mention that they used LOTS of glitter?!? They had a blast! =)

We have been practicing so hard for our Christmas program next week! The kiddos have been singing their hearts out everyday. The program is next Thursday at 6:30. Please have your children here by 6:15. A note about the program in coming home in your child's backpack today.

The kiddos have loved the new Christmas works in the room! We have also enjoyed learning more about Europe, the ladybug life cycle, and honeybees. The kiddos loved playing "Buzzy Bee" after we explored honeybee hives! =)

Happy gobble gobble! We have had a fun week in primary, and are very excited for our Thanksgiving feast tomorrow! We have learned about our first landforms- lakes and islands. The kiddos LOVE that work! We have studied insects and push-pinned leaves. We also celebrated Stella turning 5!

November is here in full force! We have spent the week painting turkeys for our Thanksgiving feast placemats, and the kinder friends have been practicing their lines for the peace ceremony next week. We have also explored leaves and the plant life cycle. We met Vincent Van Gogh, and the kiddos created different works of art inspired by his Sunflowers and Starry Night.
Have a wonderful long weekend!

Wow- This has definitely been Halloween week, and the kids having been buzzing like little bumblebees! We had a blast at the Halloween parade. Thank you to all of the helpers and parents who sent in the delicious snacks!  We have introduced Europe, and we visited the Netherlands today. The kiddos learned about traditional Dutch dress, and walked in traditional Dutch wooden shoes. Enrichment friends painted tulips, and they came out beautiful! =)

Halloween is definitely around the corner. The kids are so excited for our parade next Tuesday! It starts at 9 a.m. at the track. Please send the kiddos in a costume that is easily taken off. ;)

We have continued our studies of South America, and took a trip to Brazil and celebrated Carnival this week! We were also able to examine a piece of amethyst from a Brazilian mine, and the kiddos were thrilled to hold such a treasure. We made paintings based on the works of Georgia O'Keefe, and they all came out so unique and beautiful! They are hanging in our lobby for your viewing pleasure tomorrow for conferences. We ended our week studying the parts of the tree. We are looking forward to the leaves changing colors for our parts of the leaf studies next month. =)

This week we have learned all about amphibians! The kiddos LOVE the different works, especially the life cycle of the frog. We discovered the Amazon Rainforest in South America, and learned all about the Toco Toucan. We ended the week celebrating Diwali, which is an Indian holiday. The kiddos were able to make sand sculptures, try different foods, and dress up in traditional clothes. They had a blast!

The kiddos have been so excited all week for the Trike-A-Thon tomorrow! If you have not turned in your child's permission slip, please do so by tomorrow morning. Children with no permission slips cannot participate, so please be sure to send them in. Also, I sent out an email this week with a link to sign up for fall conferences. Be sure to sign up soon so you can get the time spot that works the best for you! =)
