WEEKLY NEWSOCTOBER 14, 2014
We had a good time last week in the Hawks room! The highlight was Thursday's visit from some local firefighters. They talked about keeping safe and demonstrated how they put on their uniforms and masks when entering a smoky building. We briefly got to see their big ladder truck before they were sent out on a call!
Thanks for all the great letter "S" words! Some favorites were sunshine, snake, spider and of course Seahawks!
This week we are learning about letter "P" and fittingly this Friday October 17th is Picture day! We will be doing some pumpkin-related activities, including baking pumpkin muffins and roasting pumpkin seeds. We will also be setting up a castle in our Home Living area for the kids to be Prince and Princesses.

It was nice to have last week to review our September letters and finish our apple unit! We made mini apple pies, conducted a taste test of red, yellow, and green apples and saw what happens when you put lemon juice on apple slices. Thank you to everyone who brought items!
This week our theme will be "safety" and we will be learning about letter "S". Please bring some "S" words to share.
