Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope everyone has a fun, safe Halloween weekend! We enjoyed many different Halloween activities in Pre-K this week. Linked below are the stories that we enjoyed listening to this week.

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat Story

Pete the Cat Trick or Pete Story

We also continued to practice our 5 Little Pumpkins fingerplay, I have linked below a 5 Little Pumpkins video that your child and they can show you the actions, as well as say the poem along with the video. I have also linked fun Halloween freeze dance songs. Freeze dance is an excellent way to practice our listening and following directions skills!

For our craft this week we made Jack O Lanterns! Check out the photos below! We first painted our paper plate to make a pumpkin and then we glued on the pieces to make a Jack O Lantern. We discussed if we made an angry Jack O Lantern or sad or happy, etc. as well as each of the facial features of our Jack O Lantern (eyes, nose, mouth, eyebrows, etc).

We also completed activities this week such as Halloween stamping, Halloween puzzles, decorating Halloween treat bags and Halloween messy play.

I also had to share with you our special Halloween door decorating project! Every classroom in the school decorated their door for Halloween. In Pre-K we painted each child’s foot white to make a ghost for our door!

Reminders:

  • No School on Thursday, November 11th for Remembrance Day.
  • T/TH pictures are on Thursday, November 18th.
  • Thank you to the families that have generously donated playdough to our classroom! I still have some spots to fill if you are interested. The playdough club sign up was sent out via email, if you would like to sign up and need it resent to you, just shoot me an email!

Have a wonderful Halloween weekend!
