Miss Debbie’s Newsletter for 10-2-20
We said good-bye to September this week and hello to October!
October is an exciting month. There are many changes in the world around us. The leaves are changing colors, there’s a little chill in the air and we are enjoying all the different kinds of apples we can eat. I’m sure as you walk around your neighborhood you are also seeing many Fall and Halloween decorations. We check out Red Robin daily when we are outside.
This we learned all about the letter “Bb”. We made school buses using yellow paint. Your children love painting! They are not afraid of getting messy and having fun!!! It might also be that we are making an ABC Book that your children will bring home at the end of the year. With each letter your child’s hand gets painted in a unique way to form something that starts with the letter of the week. Their expressions are priceless while their hand gets painted. It’s a good time to mention that I hope you are checking out all the pictures on our Facebook page. For our large classroom “B” we used “Bingo Markers” all over the “B” and hung it up in our classroom. We went on a “B Hunt”, looking all over our classroom for things that start with “Bb”, such as; blocks, banana, bowls, blue sneakers and baby. For music we put on the interactive song “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”. Children love this song for the repetition, action and anticipation of the finding the bear in the cave and running away! There are many versions of this song that you can find on your musical downloads.
“Bb” is for “BUBBLES!” Everyone enjoys bubbles even the teachers. Your children had a blast with them!
We also read the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? It is written by Bill Martin Jr. It’s a childhood favorite! There is a whole series of these books at your local library. The books that we are using in school at this time are from our personal libraries. If you are apprehensive about borrowing books from the library during Covid you can download the “Libby app”. If you have a library card you can borrow books online. It’s great! It can go to your Kindle, phone, etc.
It looks like we are going to have a beautiful Fall weekend!
We hope you all get outside and enjoy the fresh air!
Your children are amazing. They have adjusted so quickly to separation and classroom routines. We are very proud of them!
Take care and be safe!
Miss Debbie and Miss Sam
