First week of October

We have had a busy FUN week! I added some things to our class calendar and made a change so take note! Tuesday, October 29th will be our Letter P Day (P is for Party). On this day students can come to school in their pajamas. Wednesday, October 30th will now be the kindergarten Fall Festival. It will be at 1:40-2:40, if you can attend and volunteer please let me know! Last year we did pumpkin activities, counted pumpkin seeds, painted pumpkins and had a sack race. 

This past week was fire prevention week and on Monday we had Mr. Bill come from the Delaware Fire Company to talk to the kids about fire safety. Each kid got to sit in a fire truck and see how it works. 

Once we got a tour of the fire truck Mr. Bill told us about when to call 911 and we talked about what an emergency is. Then Mr. Bill showed us a fire alarm and actually set it off! All the kids were surprised at that! Finally Mr. Bill put on his fire suit and told us were the good breathable air is during a fire and where the bad air was. The kids were a little scared of Mr. Bill in his suit at first but quickly were able to settle down.

After Mr. Bill was done he gave us our own plastic fire hats and a bag full of materials. It was a fun activity and all the kids learned a lot!

On Wednesday this week we did a science experiment! We combined orange paint, glue, and shaving cream to make a puffy foam paint! Then we painted paper plates that we could turn into pumpkins!

On Tursday we turned our orange paper plates into pumpkins and put a picture of ourselves inside the pumpkins! Right now they are decorating our classroom door and are too cute!

We also learned two new letters this week and three new words! This week we learned the words in, to, and here. That means that so far this year we have learned the words: a, I, the, of, and, in, to, and here. The letters we learned this week were letter H and letter J. For letter H we made H hotdogs and for J we made J jellyfish! (I will post the J jellyfish pictures next week)

For math we had Zero the Hero come for the 30th day of school!! 

As I said it has been one busy week! The kids were great through all the changes and activities and they learned a lot.
