WEEKLY UPDATE: OCTOBER 2 – 6, 2017

THEME: THE SHAPE OF THINGS

Shapes will be the focus of our activities this week. Through the experiences provided the children will learn the names of basic shapes, to identify basic shapes and that objects are made of shapes. We plan to paint a variety of shapes, create a shape collage and go on a shape hunt in the classroom. The songs, “Birds in a Circle” by Hap Palmer, “Shapes” and “The Beanbag Boogie” by Greg and Steve will add to the learning experience!

The letter of the week activity is C is for cat.

October is fire safety month. We will read the My Big World magazine on fire safety and practice a fire drill on various days until all children have a chance to do this. We do not sound the alarm; we practice exiting the building by walking quickly
and quietly.
