Sea Star Newsletter
October 14th – 18th, 2019

These Sea Stars are amazing!! Mrs. Christian and I get the privilege of watching them engage in the different kinds of play, art, story time, building, drama (puppet theater)… My favorite this past week was the marble works. Usually we are asked to help set up the tubes. But this group likes to figure things out. A bunch of engineers! It’s fun to hear their comments as they are engrossed in play: “oh, that’s how you do it.” “Look at that, it went all the way through.” “I love these balls, but they go all over the place!” “Wanna help me make a marble tower.” Did I mention I love my job?!! 
This week we will celebrate ORANGE and the SQUARE shape. I have a fun book about a square pumpkin. Please encourage your child to wear orange and they can bring an orange and/or square show and tell. I’m excited for the kids to see the big pumpkin house/reading house. And I have sprinkled some fun Halloween/Fall decorations about. There are also many little pumpkins around the room for play and for art.
