Welcome to the Purple Room

3-5 year-old Preschool for All/ Project Child

Purple Room Newsletter

September and October Highlights:

Purple Room has been busy learning our friends’ names, our teachers’ names and our classroom routine.

We did a cool science experiment using glitter hand sanitizer to examine how germs can spread and how important it is to scrub our hands.

In September we loved learning about apples by doing some yummy cooking projects, having a super fun Fall Festival with our families, learning vocabulary words, and being able to explore a real orchard on our Apple Picking field trip.

In October, we will be learning about all things Fall and Pumpkins. We will be going on a nature walk, going Pumpkin Picking, and using pumpkins for math, science, and literacy activities.

Being in the Purple Room is super fun!
