Issue October 19-30, 2020

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your cooperation and support as we navigate through the new normal.

We are so excited and happy that we have successfully ended the first month of school, filled with many fun and exciting activities and the most important we are all healthy and safe.

Past two weeks we have been trying to spend as much as possible time outdoors. Besides, playing and having fun outside, we continue to have our circle time outside, our science classes at the front playground, our Spanish and Music classes at the Bike Yard. Students are having a blast every day in school and for us the teachers it’s so rewarding to see them grow socially, emotionally and cognitively. Past two weeks we have been learning “All About Me,” talking about the families, ourselves, siblings and the extended family. With the help from our parents we finished “All About Me” projects and we were so happy to share them with our friends. We also learned about “Columbus Day, the seven continents, the ocean and the discovery of America.

Students enjoyed the science experiments about the Balloon Blow-up and also, we made The Cloud Dough Experiment. Students got to see the process of making cloud dough and at the end each of them brough some of it home to play and sense the feel of it.


Our theme for this upcoming two weeks is “Senses and Halloween”

We are beginning this month by talking/learning about “Five Senses” We are having discussion and talks about five senses and the importance of them. We will continue to read different books sing songs, and learn stories about Halloween, the letter of the week, number of the week and Five Senses too.
