pumpkin patchOur field trip to the pumpkin patch is this Thursday! The address for Soergel Orchards is 2573 Brandt School Road, Wexford, PA 15090. The location is conveniently close to Exit 73 on I-79. Our group will meet at the covered porch area at 9:15 a.m. We are scheduled to take a hay ride up to the pumpkin patch at 9:30. Our guide will read a story to the children, and then they will be able to pick out a pumpkin. (The hay ride to the pumpkin patch and back takes about 45 minutes.) The tractor and hay wagon will take us back to the farm store area where there is a playground for the children. You can stay as long as you like at that point. We will not be going to the preschool Thursday, but if you would like to take your child back to PDS day care, you can do so. Please let the staff know if you will have your child at the day care on Thursday.

In class this week we will be counting pumpkins and making leaf creatures with the leaves we collected last week. I will be introducing lowercase letters this week. Each week we will learn about 2 letters and their sounds, and we will review colors and shapes throughout the rest of October. In Bible time, we will read about how God saved baby Moses and that he had a plan for Moses to help save God’s people, the Israelites.

We are planning to have a Halloween party for each class. The 3 year old class will have their party on Tuesday, October 30th, and the 4 year old class will have theirs on Wednesday, October 31st. The children can dress up in their favorite costumes that day, and we will have games and treats for them! The families who are scheduled to provide a snack this week are: Brown on Wednesday (10/10) and Cannon on Friday (10/12). Thank you so much for your help!
