November CURRICULUM

INFANTS

Our Theme for November is Storybook Classics. We will be using the Brown Bear book. The children will paint a picture of each animal that is in the book. Using their pictures I will put together a Brown Bear book for each child to take home. Our baby signs are sad and cry. The shape for November is rectangle and the color is brown. Our song is “Brown Bear, Brown Bear”. The nursery rhyme for the month is “Little Miss Muffet”. We will be talking about and reading some of our favorite storybook classics and our art will come from the books we read and our favorite rhymes. We will also be making Thanksgiving art. Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

 

 

Toddler I

Our Theme for November is Storybook Characters. We will be doing art that goes along with books such as Old MacDonald’s Farm; Brown Bear, Brown Bear; and many more. If your child has a favorite book we would love reading it during our story time. Our baby sign is sad and cry and our shape for November is a rectangle, and our song for the month is “Bumping up and down in my little red wagon”. Our color is brown and the nursery rhyme is “Hey Diddle, Diddle”. Happy Thanksgiving!

 

 

Toddler II & Pre-School I

Have you heard about Amber Lamb and Button Bear?  They are our Pre-school mascots! Amber Lamb and Button Bear have been helping the boys and girls learn concepts such as sharing with others, using seatbelts, and understanding fire safety procedures. They also help with learning numbers. You may notice that your child’s coloring is improving, as staying in the lines gets easier with practice. We have practiced counting up to 10 and are recognizing numbers 1-3. You may wish to use your child’s Friday writing paper to review letters learned each week. Be sure to ask your child to sing “Where is Thumbkin?” for you. It is one of our new songs for this month. I would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving

 

 

 

Pre-School II

Have you heard about Amber Lamb and Button Bear?  They are our Pre-school mascots! Amber Lamb and Button Bear have been helping the boys and girls learn concepts such as sharing with others, using seatbelts, and understanding fire safety procedures. Amber Lamb and Button Bear will also help with learning numbers and letters. I’m sure you have noticed these little friends on many of the papers your child has brought home. During class time, we have practiced counting up to 15 and recognizing numbers 1-4 and letters A-F. You may wish to use your child’s Friday writing paper to review letters learned each week. You may notice that your child’s coloring is improving, as staying in the lines gets easier with practice. Ask your child to sing one of our new songs for you, such as “Where is Thumbkin” or “Down by the station.” Have a Happy Thanksgiving!.

Pre-Kindergarten

"The Leaves" is only one of the favorite songs the children are learning this month during

their regularly scheduled music time. "Gobble, Gobble" is another favorite.

It has been a busy time academically in four-year-old kindergarten. The children have

learned all the vowels and the blending of a consonant with a vowel. They also have

learned the recognition and concept of numbers through eight. Happy Thanksgiving!

 

 

 

Transitional Kindergarten

This month we will talk about Indians and Pilgrims in social studies. We will be doing many fun fall projects and we will talk about Health & Safety while at home and at school. We will introduce the ABeka poem “Three Guests” and continue to review our old ones. We will talk about what we are thankful for and learn a Thanksgiving song. We will review our alphabet sounds and continue reading one-vowel words. We will work on our number formation and practice telling time. Our class is so thankful for our school, our families and our friends.

 

 

Youth

This November we will learn about the definition of a “Good Citizen”. We will be making good citizen badges, exploring our “rights & duties”. We will discuss important citizens & take polls and surveys in the classroom. We will be learning important American values. As we learn about the Wild West, we will create our own cattle brands, sing western songs, and consider the winning of the west from the Native American perspective.  We will be mapping the trails west and decide what to take on the trail. Assuming the native perspective, we will keep a frontier diary, learn how to load a covered wagon and explore the different western regions. The week of Thanksgiving we will be investigating the nutrients of food and comparing diets from different cultures. We will hear about the story of Thanksgiving and how to be thankful.  Have a GREAT THANKSGIVING!
