SEA STAR NEWSLETTER

October 19th – 23rd, 2020

 

 

The room just got a little spooky. There are some spiders, jack-o’-lantern’s, skeleton bones…lots of fun and silly Halloween decorations. This week we’ll read some monster books and create our own monster masks using paper bags. Kids are always a little scared of, yet intrigued by monsters, so I have many fun books about friendly monsters that just want a friend and have feelings too. This is a fun time to open up the topic of feelings.

 

Our letter of the week is “F” for Francy Fish. We have some fun fish songs and we’ll read the book Rainbow Fish. Zoophonics is such a fun way to learn the alphabet. It’s a fun way to recognize the letters and their sounds. Each letter also has a movement to help remember the sound. Ask your child about some of the letters we’ve covered. They really know the characters.

 

Last week we had a lot of fun with the color orange and the square shape. The kids searched all week for squares around our classroom and outside. Making our orange bottles was their favorite – they loved watching their orbies grow throughout the day! You can let them pour them out of their bottle and play with them on a cookie sheet or in a bowl. So fun!
