Week 9 Pumpkins-Halloween

This week we continued our Fall unit and learned more about pumpkins and Halloween!  

Tuesday was our 4k Fall Family Funfest! It was nice seeing those of you that could make it and we hope you had a fun time with your children!

  We also read and colored a Halloween Safety Book and talked about how to be a safe trick or treater.

Mrs. Schultz visited  our class again this week and talked to the children about ways to keep our bodies safe and healthy.

The letter of the week was Gg. We learned the sign language for a letter, the literacy link sound symbols, the letter sound, and looking at and writing it in both capital letters and lower case letters.  Click here to view the many ways we learn the letter of the week!

Each week we watch letter videos from "Have Fun Teaching" and the students are really picking up the names of letters, formations, and the sounds of letters.  Check out these videos with you child!  Click HERE.

The Tuesday project of letter of the week is to decorate a letter with something that starts with the letter. This week we decorated the letter G with Green and Gold Glitter.  On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, G is for Ghost.
