Week Oct. 18 – 22 Learning Resource

Message from your teachers! 

Hello Parents!  

We hope you are staying warm as the weather changes.   We have noticed many pumpkin farms while driving the back roads.   It is a good time to talk with your child about Pumpkins.   Are they vegetables?  Do they grow in the ground?  What colors are they?  What shapes are they?   Are they all the same size?   This is one way of providing home learning while you are going about your busy days.

Just a reminder, we are offering two half hour learning sessions Tuesday at 11am and Thursday at 1pm.   If you are able to join us, we would love to see you!

As always, feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher. Please stay in touch. We are always interested in your thoughts.

Have a Great Week!

Our four program-wide expectations are Be Compassionate, Be Curious, Be A Community and Be Courageous. This week we will focus on how children can be Curious.  

We are Curious when we:

  • Explore new ideas
  • Ask “I Wonder” questions
  • Imagine the possibilities
  • Test our ideas
  • Value the challenge

In this week’s learning resource, you’ll find an activity related to this week’s expectation. Let us know how it went!
