I have enjoyed getting to know your kids this first month of the school year.
In the month of September, we have been working on getting to know each other and the classroom. The students have been exploring the classroom, getting reacquainted with their friends and meeting new friends.
We have been working on learning the rules of the classroom: using indoor voices and walking feet, using kind words and keeping our hands to ourselves. The students have been introduced to the Zones of Regulation, a way of identifying emotions as colors that we will continue to use throughout the year. We have also started our specialists: Music with Ms. Amy, Art with Ms. Michelle, and Spanish with Mr. Shawn.
In the month of October, we will be learning about the human body. The students will learn the names of the different parts of the body, about some of the organs of the body and about the skeleton. They will have a chance to trace their body on a piece of paper and label the parts. The students will learn the names of the important bones. They will also explore their senses by feeling, tasting and smelling different things. We will also be learning about the parts of the pumpkin and the lifecycle of the pumpkin to get ready to carve our pumpkin for Halloween.
I can't wait to see everyone at HarvestFest later this month!
