This month we celebrated Georgie’s second birthday! Happy Birthday Georgie!!
Our studies this month included learning about different animals in each continent and this is leading us to learn about animals with backbones or vertebrate animals (birds and mammals). In our studies of North America, we are learning about the different landmarks, the Statue of Liberty, White House, Hoover Dam, Mount Rushmore, etc. The children love this work as there are miniatures of each landmark and a matching card for them to match.
We are practicing our new letter sound “J”. The children are learning to count 1-10 in different languages and our older Ladybugs are practicing their 1:1 counting (object to symbol) by using the Spindle Boxes (5 spindles have to go to the section with the number 5, for example). We are also learning the life cycle of a pumpkin, doing lots of painting and stamping and working on our Original Artworks masterpieces which will be a surprise to each family!
We had our first Earthquake Safety Practice and the children did great practicing Drop, Cover and Hold. We love the new play equipment in the Courtyard and our new Play-yard in the back of the school!
In November we will be working on Halloween and Leaf art work as well as studying Trees and Leaves, talking about being thankful and Thanksgiving works.
