Monthly News Letter

Welcome Fall!

The students are noticing the changes in the weather as we move more fully into the autumn season. We are taking weekly nature walks and creating visual lists to note the seasonal changes: the garden dying back, some fall crops that we have started from seed such as our spinach is starting to grow, the dogwood trees are full of red berries, the milk weed pods are bursting, and of course the colors are changing.

In December we will be going bowling with our Adapted PE teacher Mr. Rob Sawyer, and then shopping for a dollar-exchange for another student. We will have a wonderful lunch at our favorite DQ! More information to follow in the home folders.

The first part of our school year has been very productive with many IEP objectives and goals worked on and met. The ongoing Yoga practice is fun and healthy, and the swimming program is a hit. We love sharing our classroom with our first grade friends from Mrs. Richard's and Mrs. Ring's classes as we study current events and work at the smart board.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or observations. Thank you for sharing your precious little ones with us. It is my delight to see them develop and grow!
