It was nice to see the kids faces after having the week off from our extended fall break! The kids seemed excited to be back in class! Since we missed some of our class time with the extended fall break, we combined that week and this weeks material and will also be using some next week!

Our letters for the month of November are Zz, Nn and Tt, the color is brown and our numbers are 8, 9 and 10. We also will be talking about our shape for the month rectangles more next week.

We read lots of books this week: Put Me In the Zoo, Animal Strike at the Zoo, Never Ever Shout in a Zoo, Dragons Eat Noodles on Tuesday, What Do They Do With All That Poo?, Norman the Slug and the Silly Shell, Ninjabread Man, Never Ever Tickle a Tiger, We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt and Fall Mixed Up! I enjoy reading books to the kids and hopefully they tell you about some of the stories we read in class.

Some of the centers we had this week included: count & match with dice, zoo animal name writing page, zoo animal patterns, cut & paste 6-10 with flamingos, What I like to eat on Tuesdays (this went along with one of our books we read!), Hey Diddle, Diddle mini book and we always try to practice writing our names on quick kits with dry erase markers. We also covered the nursery rhyme This Little Piggy along with Hey Diddle, Diddle. Ask your child if they can recite either to you!?

I have lots of things planned next week for the letter Tt and talking about our upcoming holiday, Thanksgiving!

Please email me if you have any questions

Looking forward to seeing everyone next week!!!
