We had a great time at Rounds Pumpkin Patch on Friday. Despite the light snow and rain in the morning, the children enjoyed the warm sunshine and playground by early afternoon. We all got to bring home a small pumpkin and very muddy boots and clothes.
Thanks to Mrs. Raikes for organizing this fun trip. We won’t forget the zipline we got to try.
This Thursday, Oct. 31, is our school Halloween Fun Fair. The children will be enjoying games and Halloween activities organized by the intermediates to fundraise for their year end trip. The games and snacks require children to purchase tickets in the morning when the older children come around to sell the tickets. They receive prizes for every game they play and it is a fun time had by all. The children are free to float throughout the school during the afternoon to play the variety of games and activities. All children usually bring enough money to buy tickets to get them through two hours of fun. A letter will be sent home early in the week with prices included.
In math, we are working on collecting data and making survey questions in order to produce picture graphs.
In language, we are focusing on connections, main idea and producing writing with capitals and periods.
