Happy Fall! 

We are off to a great school year!  

During September, we've all had a chance to get to know each other and make new friends. We are all different and we are all the same.

We learned how to make LWT Mat Man who uses the lines and curves we will need to create the uppercase letters of the alphabet.  He also reminds us of the parts that are needed to draw a person.

We have settled into our classroom routine nicely.  Everyone is using our classroom management system so free play is fair and fun. 

We've started sharpening our fine motor skills by working in our LearningWithout Tears workbooks. 

Our math/science center was a popular  spot this month as we observed objects in a variety of fun ways. We also welcomed Fall and learned about the four seasons. 


October Topics 2023

*Fall-leaves, apples and pumpkins

*Community Helpers

*Our Senses


*Beginning of the year assessments


Learning Without Tears (LWT)

Straight line letters: L, F, E, and H

We will practice writing our names and listening to letter sounds using the Hooked on Phonics CD.


Count on Math

Spatial Relationships

Now that we have learned the vocabulary that helps describe attributes, we can move on to understanding spatial relationship such as direction and position.  We will use this vocabulary and the corresponding conceptual awareness later when we classify and order materials.

Keep an eye out for our class traveling book on Spatial Relationships.
