3 Day Preschool 11/4/2019

Dear Families,

Happy November! The preschool had such a great time celebrating Halloween! We started our day going to the library where Mrs. Longton read great Halloween stories! Then, we went on a halloween parade through the middle school classrooms! The preschoolers brought so much joy to these hard working kids! After our parade and cute Halloween crafts, we ended our day with chocolate cupcakes! Thank you parents for all your support!

LANGUAGE ARTS

This week we will finish learning about the letter and sound of Ff and make an Ff sound craft using feathers!

RELIGION

Last week we learned about “All Saints Day”. We talked about what a Saint is and how they teach us to be like Jesus. This week we will read the lesson of the Prodigal Son. We will discuss forgiveness and learn whenever we make mistakes that God lovingly forgives us.

 SECOND STEP

 This week we will teach the children the meaning of the word Empathy.

Empathy can motivate children to respond to different situations in a caring way.

A good way to review this lesson at home is during story time or while watching a movie. Ask “How is the character feeling?”, talk about it.

BOOK ORDER

November Scholastic book order forms will be sent home on November 4th. Please turn your orders online in by Thursday, November 7th, as it is a short week.

 FOOD DRIVE

We will continue collecting food for the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank. Please send in non-perishable items for our neighbors in need.  Thank you for your support!

 

   MUSIC

The children will be learning to sing “TURKEY TIME” this time of year. Below are the lyrics:

Turkey time, pumpkin pie.

Frosty weather in the sky.

Families gather round

For Thanksgiving Day.

On that first Thanksgiving Day,

The Indians brought the meat.

The Pilgrims brought the vegetables,

And they all sat down to eat.

(Repeat: Turkey time, pumpkin pie…)

Each year on this day of thanks,

The people that we love,

Gather round to thank the Lord,

For blessings from above.

(Repeat:  Turkey time, pumpkin pie…)
