We’ll learn this fall/ pumpkin poem and make a craft to go with it!

5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate

The first one said “Oh my it’s getting late.”

The second one said “There are witches in the air.”

The third one said “But we don’t care.”

The fourth one said ” Let’s run and run and run.”

The fifth one said “I’m ready for some fun.”

Whewww went the wind and out went the lights and

the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!!!

Prek 3 ( Michele Zinicola)

Wow! Time goes by fast and the first month of school just came and went.  The children are getting used to the routine of our classroom.  They love to come in the classroom every morning and play with their new school friends.

We are learning letters, colors, numbers, and shapes in a fun, hands-on environment.

We will continue reviewing the letters A, B, and C.

At circle time, we will practice our calendar skills, sing our finger play songs , talk about fire safety and have fun identifying our colors and shapes.

We will do an art project for the letter C and a counting project using our finger prints for pumpkins on a vine!

We will continue working in our school workbooks – reviewing our colors.

Outside play is always a fun and exciting place to be with our friends!

We had a terrific week in school and look forward to next week! Remember to wear your smile to school!
