Pumpkins!

This week we will learn about all things pumpkin.  Where pumpkins come from and the life cycle of a pumpkin.  The color orange and counting to 5 and 10.  In art we will mix the colors red and yellow to make orange and paint a pumpkin for our pumpkin patch. We will cut open a pumpkin and explore the different parts with our senses on Friday and turn it into a Jack-O-Lantern.  Another great book by Zoe Hall, It’s Pumpkin Time! We will sing ring around the pumpkin and dance with the magic scarf this week.

Important Dates and Information:

Please send in a small pumpkin pie size pumpkin with your child some time this week.  We will be using them either this week or next to decorate for Halloween.

October 29th will be our virtual Costume Halloween parade and class party.

Self Help Skill:  This week try to give your child a task or to play on their own for 5-10 min before moving on to something else.  It can be playing with blocks, coloring at the table or reading a book. Setting a timer may be a big help for them.

Have a wonderful week and please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Enjoy this great book by Zoe Hall!!
