This week was such a fun experience for the Terrific Tigers! They really enjoyed dancing to all the Halloween songs like “The Scarecrow”, “Dem Bones”, “Happy Halloween”, ” Witch Doctor”, and “Witches `Brew.” During Physical Education they danced and used hula hoops, pon-poms, tamborines, and even dressed up in different costumes!
Our students also had a blast working on a spider web and pumpkin in Creativity Class.
Mr. Mike´s Circle Time was a favorite this week, as usual. The kids enjoyed dancing and role playing as goblins, ghosts, and spiders. They also love getting spooked!
Stories read to them this week included Pumpkin Faces, It´s Pumpkin Time, Halloween Treats, What is Halloween?, Who’s there on Halloween, and The Biggest Pumpkin Surprise Ever. They really enjoyed listening to these Halloween stories.
We practiced walking slowly and carefully for our parade on Thursday and they were really excited about this important event. Most of them were able to let us know what costume they would wear for this special day at school!
Finally, we had our Despicable Halloween Parade and Party on Wednesday. It was wonderful to see all the kids dressed up and sharing candy with each other. The candy give-away made for a great sharing exercise.
It was very nice to see all the parents who were able to make it to the costume parade. We even saw some of our students´ grandparents, too! All the kids were excited, and were able to walk through the “haunted house” and get some great pictures.
We want to give a special thanks to the parents who helped out with food and beverages this year. Also, a big thank you to ALL of you parents who dressed their child up for the party. Great job! Your kids all looked adorable! (more than usual).
Our Mystery Bag activity continues to be such an excitement for our kids and we really appreciate your helping your child in bringing something special from home when it is her/his turn!
November is almost here and we are ready to learn more about sharing and caring, about food, and of course, about being appreciative and giving thanks.
Once the weather changes and your kids start bringing sweaters to school, it is very important for them to have their names on them so they will not get misplaced at the end of the day.
We hope you have a fun and wonderful weekend, and are looking forward to welcoming your little ones to school again on Monday!
