It is hard to believe that seven weeks of school are gone! The class has settled down, all the students have adjusted very well. A new month ahead of us – October will be a busy month for us, full of events. But first I would like to say Thank You to all the parents who made our Grandparents and Family Friends’ Day a great success! I thank you all, parents, for helping us make this event happen.
This month we will be learning about Trees and Leaves. If you have books or items about trees, please allow your children to share them with us. We will also learn about pumpkins. We would appreciate any parents who could donate two pumpkins (one large, one small) to help us with our studies. The children will be guessing the number of seeds in each of the two pumpkins. We also will be learning about the globe and the continents. We will tie that into our study of Christopher Columbus and his trip to the New World. Then we have the Fall Break - the children deserve to have a rest and relax after the hard work in the initial period of school. After Fall Break we will try to keep the Halloween excitement as low as possible, please no Halloween costumes at school. Children will be cooking for the first time in October. Our cooking class will be together with Ms.Janaki clas and we will need some volunteers! The children have also been enjoying Music with Ms. Kathy and Spanish with Ms. Carmen!
Please don’t forget to sign up for Parent/Child Sharing Night and conferences. It is a special time to share and experience what your child has been learning in a unique environment of the Montessori school. The Parents Sharing Night is also a good occasion to see and understand what we do in class during the day, so it may give you some ideas to discuss during the Parents-Teachers Conference.
P.S. Please check yours children's change of clothes, they now need much warmer clothes.
