Welcome to Room A Home of the A1 Owls and the A3 Froggies!
We will be really busy in November! We will explore leaves and how they are different and similar. We will have Brown Day with brown colored food, a collage and games. We will play with corn and make our own harvest corn cobs. We will focus on thankfulness and the good things in our lives, and we will write them on paper turkey feathers. We will make a turkey with a pumpkin body and our thankful feathers and take it to our Friendship Feast with all of our preschool friends. There we will eat fruit salad and talk about the importance of sharing. Our left over fruit will help feed people in need. We will make amazing Thanksgiving placemats that we can use year after year.
In December we will be learning about the celebrations and traditions of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. We will be practicing our songs for our Holiday Show, baking cookies, spinning dreidels and making gifts for our families. We will also have Red Day with fun red activities.
January will be cold, so please make sure to send your child to school with mittens and a hat. We may even need snow suits and boots! Speaking of snow, we will be learning about snow and ice. We will make some "indoor snow" and create our own Snowmen. Obviously, this month we will have White Day (to go with the snow!) We will also talk about Martin Luther King, Jr. and encourage everyone to participate in acts of service on Jan. 19.
We are having so much fun in Room A, and all the upcoming events and holidays are going to be GREAT!
Enjoy the fun of the season! Tr. Kim and Tr. Lori
See some of the fun we have been having!
From mindful beginnings come global perspectives. In teaching our students to see goodness in everyone, we prepare them for the world outside of Goshen – to be caring, compassionate, involved, invested, curious, problem solving citizens of this earth.
