PDO I November Newsletter

Greetings from PDO 1! We have now been in session two months and the children are doing a wonderful job following the classroom routine. They are also feeling comfortable enough to join in with singing and dancing during music time. It has been so fun to watch them come out of their shells!

October was full of fun! We had our first finger painting experience in PDO 1 and the children (well, most of them) loved using their fingers to paint pumpkins. We also worked on the children’s fine motor skills by having them pick up cotton balls and placing them on their die cut ghosts. The children loved learning our new song, “Five Little Pumpkins.” We had such a great turnout for our Halloween parade and we loved seeing your children in their adorable costumes! Thanks to all who participated!

As we move into the month of November, we will make handprint turkeys, paint with acorns, create stamped corn, and make a colorful paper plate turkey using tissue paper. We will read Five Silly Turkeys and The First Thanksgiving. We will also learn two new songs called “Hello, Mr. Turkey” and “Five Little Acorns.” We will not have school November 26th- November 28th. We hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

As the weather starts to cool down, please check your child’s bag and make sure they have a warm change of clothes in case of an accident. Please remember to pack a labeled jacket as well.

We would like to wish a Happy Birthday to Emily Wolbach, Kate McGinnis, and Alex Gedman who turned two in October. Congratulations to the family of Lucy Richards on the birth of baby Bo!

Ms. Stephanie, Ms. Lilli, Ms. Brandi S. and Ms. Brandy H.
