Miss Lori’s Halloween Newsletter for 10-29-20
The excitement has finally arrived! We had our Halloween celebration this week! The first thing we did was have a fashion show. Each of your children stood in front of the class and showed all of us the front and back of their costume, while everyone clapped and cheered. It was so much fun seeing everyone’s costumes!!! After that, the children heard a very spooky story read to them by Miss Sheryl called In Dark, Dark Wood by David A. Carter. The children’s screams were heard near and far! Afterward our class went on a
“Spooky Scavenger Hunt” created by Miss Sheryl. A clue was read to them, then the children had to find the picture to match the clue in one of our classrooms and surprise treats were waiting at each spot! The boys and girls had so much fun listening to the rhyming spooky clues. The best part of course, was finding the candy!!! After the scavenger hunt all of the children went on a pumpkin hunt! Pumpkins were hidden all over our classrooms while the children looked everywhere to find a pumpkin! All of the children trick or treated as well and went home with a goody bag of candy. To top it off, we had a delicious Halloween Party, as well as a birthday party for our friend Niam! What an exciting and fun Halloween we had! Thank you to all of our families for making our party a huge success.
This week we reviewed the letters that have already been introduced, Aa-Ee. Each day during lesson time we played games using the pictures that your children have brought to school. The children took turns finding a picture that began with a specific letter sound. We also took turns pointing to pictures and guessing what letter the picture began with. Next week we will work on the letter “Ff”. Please continue to send in pictures that your child has picked out, have them glue the pictures on to a piece of paper and write their name. Your child can also choose to draw a picture and color it if they want as well.
It is hard to believe next week begins a new month. We will begin discussing the holiday of Thanksgiving, we will talk about Veteran’s Day and we will continue to talk about Election Day. Each week we continue to practice our handwriting. Please always make sure to begin their names with an uppercase letter while the remaining letters are lower case. Using a yellow hi-liter rather than dots is a great way to help your child with any letters and numbers. Thank you!!!
Enjoy your weekend!
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
Miss Lori and Miss Kristine
