We are very proud of our
September was a wonderful month filled with so many adventures!
We are off to a great start!
Mornings begin with the “Our Father” followed by the flag salute, patriotic song and a blessing for each day. We continue with calendar activities, counting the school days and weather observations.
IN RELIGION WE HAVE ENJOYED LEARNING THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US MANY GIFTS. AMONG THESE ARE THE GIFT OF LIGHT, WATER AND THE GIFT OF ANIMALS. WE HAVE LEARNED ABOUT THE LIFE OF SAINT FRANCIS AND ATTENDED THE MASS FOR SAINT FRANCIS. HAPPY FEAST DAY TO OUR FRANCISCAN FRIARS!!
THE “OLD MAN/OLD WOMAN” GAME IS GREAT FOR LETTER IDENTIFICATION. THE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN IDENTIFYING RHYMING WORDS. THEY HAVE BEEN LISTENING AND RESPONDING TO STORIES AND NURSERY RHYMES. THEIR SKILLS HAVE BEEN IMPROVING AND WE CONTINUE TO PRACTICE THE CORRECT PENCIL GRIP.
In Math we are busy identifying our numbers,shapes, sorting and identifying the sorting rule, graphing and beginning AB patterns. We will be graphing our favorite baseball teams in the World Series!!
The Science Lab was in full use for Johnny Appleseed’s Birthday. The children found the star in the center of the apple! They made a print of it. We are observing the change of season and will make collections of leaves to use in the lab. We dissected sun flowers to see how the seeds are in the flower. We will continue to watch the changes to the Ginkgo biloba tree and send pictures to the Smithsonian Institution for research.
We look forward to our trip to the fire house. A huge “Thank you” to the volunteers from the Point Pleasant Beach Fire Department who make this such a fun and educational trip! We love to walk and learn about our community.
