Recent Shape and Say stories: “The Time Tapping Tool” and “The Moaning Mountain”. 

CIK story: “Tattletale” with a focus on when and when not to tell.

We took our first class walk on the Rexius Trail this afternoon. The weather was perfect for our first time.

Each child enjoyed his/her reading buddy from Mary’s upper-elementary class. Our buddies will visit us the first and third Wednesday afternoon of the month.

Your child may have worn a bracelet home. Sewing has been popular. Each child threads his/her own needle and sews a button to a strip of felt. We are creating a bar graph that shows how many bracelets are sewn from each color.

The children will make applesauce tomorrow. Each student will crank an apple through a gadget that peels, cores and slices it. Half the apple can be eaten for snack and the other part will go into a slow cooker and made into applesauce and be served after lunch.

New materials: Senses sorting, binomial and trinomial cubes, rhyme matching, opposites matching and bubble making.

Songs: “Spin, Spider, Spin,” “Going to Kentucky,” “Magic Horse and Me” and “Polaris Jack.”

Missing: The dollar from our money exchange game.

October events: 19th-Curriculum Sharing, 21st-Listener Training 1:30-2:00 and the 27th-Mt. Pisgah.
