October/November Greetings from the Primary Class

We have had an exciting two months! We enjoyed learning about the theme of Diversity and practicing new traditions in August. We loved seeing how we are each so similar, yet so different. We learned about other traditions that are different from ours, and we made beautiful art to represent us! The month of September was amazing! Camping Day was a huge hit! We went on lots of bear hunts, and we learned about Woodland Creatures and how to stay safe in the woods.

We are now focusing our time on the joys October will bring, starting with our Scarecrow Contest! Our class has worked so hard on our “Where the Wild Things Are” Scarecrow. We can’t wait for you to check it out. October’s theme is “In the Orchard.” We will be learning what an orchard is, what it takes to harvest an orchard, and much more. We will be making lots of wonderful art this month tied with some fascinating apple science experiments, which include apple tasting!

For November, we will be learning about “Friends and Neighbors.” We will take a close look at friends and neighbors in our lives, how they help us, and how we help them. We will talk about what it means to be a friend along with practicing these skills in our classroom. We are planning lots of group activities this month that will allow us the opportunity to continue to practice kindness and love to all.

We look forward to learning, growing, and enjoying the cool fall weather!
