Classroom Happenings – November

What a wonderful and busy October we had!

 

We are really enjoying exploring all the fall science objects in our Science Area.  We love to weigh the acorns and gourds and like to sketch and investigate them inside and out.  We enjoyed seeing how they sink and float.  In the next few weeks we can’t wait to open and explore the inside of our class pumpkin.  We will learn vocabulary words of what will be inside and what we will see, feel, and smell.

We loved our fun Pumpkin Field Trip!  We got to share what we remembered from our trip in our field trip book on the bulletin board.  Thank you to our awesome parents for going with us.!

We loved going on a Dirt Walk and digging up all the different kinds of dirt around our school.  We got to explore and describe what we saw and felt.

Leaning about Fire Safety was important to us.  A special thank you to Trent’s Uncle Scott (a real firefighter) for teaching us how to be safe around fire.  We also had the firefighters from  the fire station visit.  We learned how to write thank you notes for our special visitors to let them know they were awesome.

In the upcoming weeks we will focus on the letters, g, h, and i, talking about feelings, using fall items for math, writing and science exploration, and we will learn about voting and have a classroom election.

Here’s to a thankful November!

Green Team

Ms. Heather has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Virginia Tech.  She loves beach time, traveling the world, hiking and skiing with her two sons, Conner and Collin.

She feels reading to children is the greatest gift to give them.  As Dr. Seuss said, “the more that you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go”!

 

Ms. Jasmine has just completed her  Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education.   For the last four years I have been working in an accredited center.  Prior to working for the center I was a nanny and babysat for families in my community.  I very much still enjoy babysitting in my free time.  I have a spontaneous two year old that keeps most of my time occupied.  What I enjoy the most is traveling with my family and skating with my son.
