The Hungry Caterpillar



Quaker Church location

Prek 4 (Adele Leeds)

This week’s letter is C. We’ll read Eric Carle’s The Hungry Caterpillar and make ” name ” caterpillars.

We’ll make letter C cows and carrots and very colorful fall leaf wreaths!

We’ll work on identifying and counting numbers 1-15 and match carrot tops to carrots ( #s 1-15 ).

At circle time we’ll talk about fire and water safety, school, home and traffic safety. We’ll play safety-sign bingo!  We’ll also talk about the seasons and practice our days of the week and months of the year songs!

Carefully,  using candles and small glass jars ( one with a perforated lid ), we’ll discover that candle flames / fire need air to burn. We’ll talk about how firemen and women use water and extinguishers to put out fires.

We are working in our workbooks and this week we’ll practice writing A, B and C and numbers 1 and 2.

The children are loving outdoor play!

Prek 3 (Michele Zinicola)

Pre – K 3 is an exciting place to be!  Our second week of school was very productive.  The students are doing a wonderful job of learning our school routine and rules.  We have had fun learning each other’s names and becoming friends!

We are working on fun-filled activities that include letters, colors, shapes, weather, calendar skills, art projects and lots more!

We love doing finger play with our songs – “Where Is Thumbkin?” ,   “ If You’re Happy And You Know It “ , and  “Ten Little Monkeys”!

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

This week we will continue to practice our letters A and B and have fun with the colors red, green, and blue.

We will talk about the new season – fall, and have our first school trip to the farm!

We will learn a new song about apples and have a fun project looking inside an apple.

We had a terrific week in school and look forward to next week  – Don’t forget to wear your smile to school!!!!
