Thank you for bringing all of the apples! 🍎🍏 We have done a number of activities with this theme including making 3 kinds of abc apple patterns, learning about and investigating the parts of the apple, and a scientific experiment today that included playing hot potato with a peeled Apple (so we could get all of our hand germs on it) and placed in a ziplock bag. Then, we also placed a clean part of the peeled Apple in another bag. We are going to watch both apples and see what germs or no germs does to our apple parts over time! We also made a whole class graph, and found that green apples were our favorite color apple! Tomorrow we will do an apple stamping project and get to eat some too!
If anyone has any books about apples, or apple-related themes, please feel free to have your child come in and share them with the class for a day.
Field Trip Update: Thank you for the permission slips and monies that have been returned so far. I also refunded everyone $2 because the trip cost is now $15, as opposed to $17. Please find the receipt and refund money in your child's backpack. Ray School has helped us out with that $2!
The due date for the field trip is October 11, but in the event of an impending teacher strike, it may have to be held off. In the event of this happening, the cost of the trip will most likely be refunded to you, and/or we will reschedule. If you get the money to us by the 7th, that would be great - but if you would like to hold off until the 11th (if we have school), feel free to bring in then too.
Attendance Reminders: Please be sure your child comes to school on time so they do not miss out on any learning. Arrival after 8:50AM is considered a tardy. If you are eating breakfast in the morning with your child, you are able to come up and wait with your child in the classroom until our class makes it inside. If you go outside to meet us, you will enter a madhouse! 😊
Also, we know you love your little pumpkins, but we request you to take them to the door and have them arrive with their class into the building.
Also, I am missing some parent emails from some of you. I will be sending home a note tomorrow for all those who I am missing.
Continue to stay tuned for more news! I will also be sending out a mass email shortly.
