November

Dear Parents:


Great job on costumes!  Thank you to our party mothers for making our Halloween day special.  The children had memorable celebrations and enjoyed the Halloween Parade.


November promises to be just as exciting.  We will continue to work with colors, shapes and numbers while we continue our the letters of the Alphabet and the number of the week.  In addition we will be discussing things we are thankful for such as families, friends and community. Thanksgiving love and sharing are also themes for the month.


The children really look forward to singing “Hello Mr. Turkey How Are You and We are Thankful, Hooray for God”.   Playing instruments and movement in our program helps children develop an ear for music! The guaranteed smile on a child’s face is often enough to include music in our program.  Music movement provides children with a creative verbal and non-verbal outlet for their emotions. Movement provides exercise, body awareness, given a large motor skills development while giving them opportunity to use their imagination to grow.  Music also helps develop language skills. Sing with your child every chance you get.


I know homework was mentioned in the Back to School orientation however, we are going to continue our monthly enrichment in its place.  We will continue to send home classwork with little comments so you can see how your child is progressing. Please check our website links to reinforce skills.


Our Thanksgiving party will be on November 21th.  Have a turkeyriffic month.


Serenity,

Mrs. Leonenko and Mrs. Joyce
