November 4 – 8, My Five Senses. This week we will be learning and using our five senses, and discovering how to explore the world around us.
November 11 – 15, Health. This week in preparation for our field trip to the hospital we will be learning about our bodies and how we can be healthy people. The field trip permission slip is attached with more information. Please ask if you have any questions.
November 18 – 22, Families. This week we will be talking about our families and homes. We would like all the children to bring in a photo of their family like you did for the pet week. If there are family members on the photo who we don’t know please put their names on the back.
November 25 – 27, Thanksgiving. This is a short week for us because of the holiday but we will be learning about the traditions and stories of Thanksgiving. Hope everyone has a lovely time with their families.
The Discovery Center will be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 28 and 29th due to the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Book orders are due on November 12th. Please make checks payable to Scholastic book. If ordering online our class code is GWV3W.
Please have a hat, gloves, and snow boots in your child’s locker each day. Depending on the conditions we will determine what your child needs to put on each day and time. Also soon you will need snow pants for your child. Please take large back packs and belongings out of your child’s locker so they have room to put their winter gear in the lockers. It is helpful for us if your child can put on their own clothes. That’s why we suggest that you have your child practice at home putting on gloves and boots. If they are too much of a struggle for your child, then it will be hard for them to do it here at preschool. Remember we have to get 10 to 17 children ready each day. Also please label snow pants and boots as children often have similar ones.
The Discovery Center will be closed for Christmas December 24th through January 1st. The center reopens on Thursday, January 2nd, however Lakers school does not go back until the 6th. If your child will not be attending additional days during the holiday please let us know in advance.
We do recommend that all children get the flu shots as this helps the spread of the disease. We remind children to cough into their sleeves and use a Kleenex after sneezing. We wash hands after we use the bathroom and before we eat.
