Just wanted to explain all of our upcoming events going on in our Kinder classroom!
Week of October 22-26: Welcome to bat week! This is a fun week where everything we learn about has to do with bats! We are still staying on our Georgia standards and our units of day/night, as well as animals. However, we are doing it in a fun way!
By now, our kiddos have acclimated to our daily routine, so to keep them interested/engaged in what we are doing, I like to spice it up with some routines!
I have handled EVERYTHING bats for the week!
However, if you have books, pictures, stuffed animals, snack ideas, etc of bats you would like to share with our classroom, you are welcome to bring them in! Please notify Mrs. Cutno of when you would like to come in or if you are sending anything in, so we can add it to our daily schedule! J
This is nothing mandatory from parents/ families, this is just an opportunity to get involved if you would like!!!
Week of October 29-2: Welcome to pumpkin week! This is another fun thematic unit involving pumpkins! The only donations that I do need help with would be 3 large pumpkins (we will be having lots of science experiments with these on Friday, November 2nd). I also need each child to bring a small pumpkin as we will be painting and decorating personal pumpkins that day as well. J If you have any pumpkin books, fun snack ideas, craft ideas, and/or anything else you or your child would like to share on this week, feel free to bring it in!
***Special update- we will be carving out the seeds and “guts” of our pumpkins on Friday, so if you would like to give your child an extra t-shirt to bring to school to get messy, that would be great!
Fall Class Party (Wednesday, October 31st) Here is the day where we need the most help/donations! From 8:30-10:00 we will be throwing our class fall party in the classroom (Rm 246). The signup genius sent out earlier and linked below, has volunteer sign ups and material donation sign-ups for that day. Here are the fun things that we will be doing that day and the materials needed…
- Spider- Oreo snack
- Needed- 2 Oreo packages, pretzel sticks, vanilla frosting, and M&Ms
- Candy corn fruit snack
- Needed- small clear plastic cups, 2 cans of pineapples, 2 cans of mandarin oranges, black/orange napkins, tub of whip cream
- Fall necklace
- String, fall color beads (i.e. red, orange, yellow, brown, green, etc.)
- Candy corn sight word bingo
- Pumpkin bowling
Finally, any donated candy for our “winners” of the fall party will be greatly appreciated, as well as volunteers to work each fun station! We also love visitors, so if you would love to stop by and partake in the fun, you are more than welcome to join during that time! J
Thank you for all that you do to support myself and Mrs. Cutno, as well as your child at home and at school. Please do not feel obligated to donate or volunteer. These items merely are just one less thing for myself to bring to school that day. Thank you again! J If you have any questions regarding our fun coming up, please let me know!
