Dear Parents,

We had a fantastic week! We continued our theme of farm. Today for our fun Friday, we played candyland, play doh and we made a Mystery Mess. When we return from fall break we will continue the theme of farm and fall. Our book for that week will be Ten Red Apple by Pat Hutchins, the letter will be uppercase A, we will be doing a shape review, and the color will be yellow. I hope everyone enjoys their fall break!

Here are some fun activities to do with your child over fall break:

  1. You can make your own sensory bins. Get a large plastic bin and fill is with almost anything! ( rice, corn, beans, oats,cloud dough, or sand are just few) Then add in different size cups or containers.
  2. You can go on a color or shape hunt around your house or neighborhood.
  3. Make a necklace out of dried pasta ( you can dye it different colors)
  4. Cut an apple and talk about the parts of an apple (we will also do this a class)!
  5. Make your own sink or float activity ( put water in a bowl or tub, and find different things throughout your hose to see if they will sink or float in the water)

See everyone October 2nd!

Sincerely,

Kara Kozloski
