Week of September 30 - October 4 - Pumpkin Fun

This week is all things Pumpkins!  We will read stories, make crafts, and use our 5 Senses while we transform a pumpkin into a Jack-O-Lantern.  Our Religion focus is that Jesus is the Good Shepherd. Show and Tell this week is something orange just like a pumpkin!

Week of October 7 - 11 - Fire Safety

This week is all about Fire Safety!  We will read stories, make crafts, and we will have a very special visit by the Hillsdale Fire Department to learn all about fire safety!  We will practice our fire drill routine and talk about what to do at home in case of a fire. Our Religion focus this week is that the children will learn that their name is special.  Show and Tell this week is an item about fire safety, showing their friends how to stop, drop and roll, or tell us something they have learned about fire safety. Or they can do all 3!

Week of October 14 - 18 - Community Helpers

This week is all about Community Helpers.  We are going to learn about some of the people who work in our community and our neighborhoods.  We will read the story Whose Hat Is This? And complete activities based upon this book.  Our Religion focus will be on the Good Shepherd and we will discover that God loves and cares for everyone.  Show and Tell this week is a toy or book that represents a community worker.

Week of October 21 - 25 - Transportation

This week is all about transportation - all the ways people travel and move on land, on water and in the air.  Our Religion focus this week is on family and we will talk about how God gave us families that love and care for us.  Show and Tell this week is a toy or book that relates to transportation.

Week of October 28 - November 1 - Halloween

This week we will be celebrating Halloween!  Stories, crafts, a parade and a party! ** If your child does not attend school on Thursday’s - they are welcome to come in that day from 7:30 - 12:00.  Our Religion focus this week is how God created the world and all things in it.
