Dear Parents,

Autumn is officially here, and the children in our classroom have already started to notice some common fall signs. The leaves on the trees were noticed by some as changing red and others noticed that they were falling to the ground. We decided to bring the falling leaves into our room for the children to investigate. The children were observed crunching up the leaves, while others were keen on telling us the colours that they saw. This initiated our colour investigation. Activities were laid out for the children to explore colour such as sorting, colouring, matching, etc. Our sensory bin was filled with a variety of items of the same colour. Every day, the children experienced a different colour and used those items to match with other items found around the classroom. Paint, crayons, markers, etc., are still a very prominent creative interest in our class. We painted a different colour every day and created a group collage about the colour of the day. Please feel free to take a look at our art displays in our classroom to see what we have been collaborating on.

For the month of November, our class will be given opportunities to investigate and explore with clay. The children have been given endless opportunities to explore with paint, play dough, sand, water, etc., We would like to observe how children interact with a different form of media.

In Language Arts, we are well into our first set of letters in the Jolly Phonics program. The children have been responding well to the sounds, mimicking the songs and actions. We have begun associating the letter sounds to items in our classroom, stressing the initial sounds. For example, stressing on the “sssss” sound when saying the word “scissors”.

In Mathematics, we are touching upon shapes and colours allowing the children to become familiar with the names of shapes. They have begun developing number recognition and counting to five. The children have been introduced to songs such as the “5 Little Monkeys” and “5 Little Pumpkins”. We will be working on one-to-one correspondence while counting to five.

This week, each child will receive a practice book to take home for the month. We ask that parents bring back their child’s booklets at the end of each month so that we may add new concepts. The practice book is great opportunity for you and your child to practice the skills and language we are fostering here at Autumn Hill Academy. The book will include Jolly Phonic letters we have been working on in the previous month as well as mathematical concepts that we touch upon from time to time. Attached to the book you will also find a list of activities that can be done at home that will extend your child’s learning.
