Wow! The time is certainly flying by! It's already the end of the first week of October!
Lots of fun things have been happening in the Upper SRC lately. Our class is very excited about the Pumpkin Patch field trip coming up (on October 19th)! We have talked about what we will do at the pumpkin patch and what we should wear if it rains (which is very probable!). Boots, rain jackets, and pants were most of the responses!
I have also had some inquiries about the Harvest Party on Monday, October 31st. We have one parent who offered to send cookies and juice boxes (thank you!). Last year we sent our students home with a little Halloween gift bag that included some festive trinkets (pencils, rings, erasers) and a few pieces of candy. If you would like to send items to help fill a small gift bag, that would also be great!
We have been creating many ghostly and ghoulish art projects to get in the Harvest spirit! You will see these coming home with your children at the end of October. I also have quite a collection of autumn and Halloween related books! We have been taking turns choosing which book to read during story and song circles!
October sure is a fun month! You can expect at least one more blog entry from me this month! I hope you enjoyed the update!
