OCTOBER 2021 CURRICULUM
SEPT 27- OCTOBER 1: UNDER CONSTRUCTION
This week we move on the BIG equipment used in our community. Using pictures and books the teachers will show the children how buildings are built and torn down. They will be busy in the block center building, measuring, and creating! We welcome all bull dozers, excavators, dump trucks, and backhoes…. please LABEL with your child’s name.
OCTOBER 4-8: FIRE PREVENTION
Our activities this week will focus on firefighters, fire trucks, and the job firemen do in our community. Our neighborhood Station will come to come demonstrate how to protect ourselves from the fire hazards. Be prepared to stop, drop, and roll! Not sure if Patches, the singing firedog, will be able to perform this year due to Covid. Helpful hint: Reinforce your escape route in your home with your children!
OCTOBER 11-15: HALLOWEEN FUN
Not sure what the rules will be for trick or treating this year but we will have lots of fun decorating the classrooms with bats, cats, and creepy crawlers! We will discuss Halloween traditions and trick or treat safety.
OCTOBER 18-22: HALLOWEEN FUN CONTINUED
OCTOBER 25-29: HARVESTING AND PUMPKINS
Fruits, vegetables. And grains grown in the fall will be covered this week. Pumpkins are a favorite! The Pre-k will be making their annual vegetable soup to share with all the children. Look for the sign-up sheet on the door to the classroom. It is always YUMMY!
