October 2017

Dear Parent(s),

Welcome to October, how quickly September flew by.  Our focus of interest for our Senior Kindergarten students is on Thanksgiving, pumpkins and of course, Hallowe’en. We continue to work on routines, and adjusting to the beginning of another school year.  

For our Grade One students, we were very busy in September working on patterning and numeracy, as well as sight words and writing skills.  What progress we have begun to make, well done!

In October, for our Grade Ones there will be a focus on:

Religion:  continue to share how “We Belong”  to God and Thanksgiving

Math:  we will focus on numeracy and we begin to learn about time and money

Language:  continue to focus on writing using our letter and sound knowledge, sight words, and simple punctuation.

Social Studies:  we continue to discuss family and begin to look at community

Science:  we will continue to learn about daily and seasonal changes, as well as the natural world around us.

An important date to remember this month is Picture Day; which will take place on Wednesday, October 4.  A notice went home with the details.

Our Hallowe’en Costume parade for SENIOR kindergartens will take place on Tuesday, October 31, 2017.  Please no masks or weapons.  The children are invited to come to school in their costumes and we will have a parade in the morning.    The costumes will come off before lunch recess and be sent home in the backpack or a bag you send in for the costume.

Here is one of our Turkey Songs, you and your child might enjoy singing it at home.

A turkey named Burt, thought he’d make up a dance 

and he’d dance it for the king and queen.I

f he did a good job and they liked it a lot,

they wouldn’t eat him - ‘cause that would be mean. 

He went side close, side close, flap your wings and wiggle your toes, 

he went side close, side close flap your wings and wiggle your nose.

Have a great Thanksgiving.  God Bless.

Mrs. Bekking
