Apples, Letters, Important October Dates

          Our unit on apples was a big success!  The children really enjoyed the experience, and they looked adorable in their Johnny Appleseed hat.  During this study of apples, your child has learned about the seasons of the apple tree, parts of the apple, new vocabulary words (blossom, core, stem, flesh, skin), They also made a graph all of the apples brought in by the children.  We had the most red apples, and the fewest were green.  The children also tasted green, and red apples and determined the class favorite. 
We will be going on a field trip to the Oil Ranch on Tuesday, October 30th.  We are asking that your child wear his/her MDE or Zero the Hero t-shirt with shorts/jeans and tennis shoes.  Please send their lunch in a plastic ziplock bag.  We will throw away all lunch items at the ranch, so do not send lunch boxes or plastic containers that need to be returned.  If you would like to chaperone this event, please send an email to let me know.  We will leave the school at 9:00 and return at 1:30. 
The letters and sounds we have taught are E, F, D, and P .  Have you heard your child using the vocabulary words horizontal and vertical?   
          The  Mother Goose Play is just around the corner.  Now is a perfect time to begin looking for a simple costume.  If you are having trouble finding one, let me know.
