Hello Parents,

Welcome to this week’s home learning Newsletter.  Please read through these notes as they include some important information!

If you are new to our class, we need to make sure your child has a vision and hearing check. There is a free health clinic on Thursday, October 28th from 9:00 – 2:00.  Please text me if you are able to go.  It is a great opportunity to take care of the health requirements needed before we meet in person.

Our Class Socialization this week will be 11:00 – 11:30 on Thursday, October 28. Watch your email for the Teams link Thursday morning!

Also, don’t forget the parents meeting on Monday October 25th.  

I look forward to visiting with you this week!

Have you seen the rain falling down?  The weather is changing!  Look at this video to see how kids create weather right at home.  Maybe you and your mom or dad can try to make a cloud!

Social Emotional

Be thankful!

Who can you say “thank you” to today?  Did someone make lunch for you?  Did you tell that person “thank you”?

Did someone help you with school on the computer this week?

Tell them “thank you!”

Movement / Play

Can you move your body with these kids…and freeze! When you freeze, it means you stop moving and stay exactly like you are until the music starts again.  When the singer says “freeze”, you have to stop moving and wait for the music!
