Congratulations to all our students and their families on a great start to
the new school year! Our days have been full and busy. While getting to
know each other, we have also been working together to develop
routines and set up classroom expectations.
This past month of September we sure have noticed the drop in
temperature. The children in our group have noticed as well. We would
like to remind you to bring proper clothing for your child/ren depending
on the weather. We will be spending time outside to see the pretty colours
of fall; everyone needs to be warm!
A glimpse of September - the children were interested in playing
outdoors and indoors they enjoyed going grocery shopping in our
dramatic play set up. With this play they learnt imagination, creativity,
discovery social/language skills, turn taking and sharing. We also have
been working on teamwork with our group. This is a great skill; and the
children have been learning quite well.
We will be starting our alphabets from October. We will teach one
alphabet each week so the children can learn properly. We have
prepared alphabet book for each week and will send it home after
October planning is full of fall activities. We will also be making fall mobile for our
preschool. That will be exciting for children to decorate the school with their own creations.
Worksheets and Hands on learning - We believe in keeping the
children engaged with hands on learning activities because worksheets
are not the only way to teach writing, reading and math concepts. On the
other hand, some children love to do worksheets. We will be keeping a
balance by using worksheets as well as doing hands on learning
With Thanksgiving on the horizon, we would like to say thank you to all
our families for being part of our preschool community. Here is a song
below to share with your children.
