Hello, Friends & Families!

Poem of the week

Pumpkin picking

Let’s go picking in the pumpkin patch.

Now we’re jiggling the old gate latch.

Gate swings wide and we step inside.

Pumpkins spread like an ocean tide.

You take the one like a fat ballon.

I’ll take the one like an orange moon.

hike to the house in fifty paces.

Then we’ll carve out the pumpkin faces.

What Was Happening?

We focused on letter “F” this week. We traced, colored, sounded out, and discovered different items that start with this week’s letter, the letter “F”. We made the letter “F” craft, and we placed our sample on the wall outside our classroom, as well as inside the classroom. We are still watching our tree leaves how they change color/status. The leaves are already turned dry and their color is turning to black. We practiced counting numbers (1-10), and we used different manipulatives for counting. For reading comprehension, we answered “What book did we read?” and “Who was the book about?” questions, and we used “I Know an Old lady who swallowed a pie” book. We also are still learning our core words, “I” & “Want” by using our core learning book “When I Want” from the “Core first Learning” series. For science, we are learning about seasons, weather, and calendar words. We did an amazing job in Gym, Art, and music.

Poem of the week

Autumn Leaves

Green leaves,

Yellow leaves,

red leaves, and brown,

Falling,

Falling,

Blanketing the town.

Oak leaves,

maple leaves,

Apple leaves, and pear,

Falling,

Whispering,

“Autumn’s in the air!”

Big leaves,

Little leaves,

Pointed leaves, and round,

Falling,

Nestling,

Carpeting the ground.

———– Leland B. Jacobs

The Letter “E” is our focus for this week. We traced, colored & matched all about the letter “E”. We made our sample of “E is for Elephant” and placed it inside our classroom, while we placed our letter “E” poster on the wall outside the room. We enjoyed working on these activities:) For reading comprehension, we answered “What book did we read?” and “Who was the book about?” questions. We also worked on our core words for this week, “I” and “Want”, and we used “When I Want” book from the “Core first Learning” series. For math, we learned how to use different manipulatives to count from 1-10. In science, we are learning about seasons, weather, and calendar words, and we still are watching how the leaves are changing their colors.

Poem of the week

At the top of My Voice

When I stamp

The ground thunders,

When I shout

The world rings,

When I sing

The air wonders

How I do such things.

What Was Happening?

We focused on letter “D” this week. We learned how to trace, color, sound, and discover different items that start with this week’s letter, the letter “D”. We made the letter “D” craft, and we placed our sample on the wall outside our classroom. We are still watching our tree leaves how they change color/status. The leaves are already turned dry and their color is turning to dark green. We had fun time counting our fingers (1-10). Our palms felt funny when we counted 🙂 This week’s story for reading comprehension was “Pete The Cat the Wheels on the Bus” by James Dean. We answered “What book did we read?” and ” Who was the story abut?” questions. We also extended our comprehension on core words in which we continued our learning of the core word “I”, and for that purpose, we used “I have feelings” book. We made a poster of this book and placed it on the wall outside our classroom. We had a great time in Gym, Art, and Music.

Congratulations for our friend, Hanin A. Hanin was selected as the student of the month of September, and she was awarded a certificate for displaying the character trait: Respect. Good job Hanin 🙂

Poem of the week

Gray Squirrel

Hurry, hurry, scamper, scurry,

Little squirrel all gray and furry.

Find an acorn; crack it, crunch it,

Nibble, nibble, munch, munch, munch it.

Find another, fat and round,

To bury quickly in the ground.

Gather nuts-don’t stop to play!

For winter winds are on the way.

Joan Horton

What Was Happening?

In this week, the letter “C” was our focus. We worked on letter “C” worksheets in which we learned how to trace the letter “C”, how to color pictures that start with letter “C”, and we also made “C is for car” samples. We picked some of our pictures that start with the letter of the week and hung them on the wall outside our classroom. We are still working on counting numbers 1-10 in math. Since Fall started on Thursday the 22nd of September, we will be observing how tree leaves change their color for science class. We made a tree out of construction paper and filled it with natural green leaves. We will keep an eye on these leaves while they change their color. For reading comprehension, we used “Pete the Cat The Wheels on the Bus” by James Dean. We worked on answering “What book did we read?” and “Who was the story about?”. We continued with our core word “I” by reading “I have Feelings” . We enjoyed our time with Ms. Nada (Art), Mrs. Reed (Music), and Mr. Borg (Gym).
