October 2018

Dear Families,
October finds us settling into our school routines.  The children come each day ready and eager to learn. They have learned their friends’ names and important truths found in God’s Word.  Psalm 16:6 says, “The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.”  What joy to be able to tell these children about the eternal inheritance that God has prepared for each of them.
Bible Stories…
The children will learn about Bible heroes Noah, Joshua and Daniel.  They’ll find out how God empowered ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things for Him.

The kinders are eager to learn how to read and write.  They faithfully practice and their skills improve daily.  Math, Bible Time and of course, recess fill out our days.  During Oct they will be learning about body systems and how wonderfully God has created us.

The children are busy learning math, science and reading in a hands-on way.  October finds them exploring the world using their 5 senses. 

The 4’s…
During October the 4’s learning units include: dental health, fighting germs with good hygiene and using our 5 senses to learn about our world, and of course some pumpkin fun.  We will celebrate one of our favorite book characters, Curious George.  The children will try their hand at a step-by-step drawing of George, enjoy some George books and eat bananas!  The children will also be listening to classical composers in October learning to identify different instruments in an orchestra.
Extended Day Kids…
Hooray, we love to read!  The children are learning to read, write and listen with
MacMillan/McGraw Hill Letterbooks.

The 3’s…
The 3’s will use their senses examining fall leaves and sorting by shape, size and color. The little ones will learn how healthy food and good hygiene are important to help us grow. Pumpkins are also in the plans.  Practicing with school tools, especially scissors, offers challenge and a sense of accomplishment.

The children are blessed each week at Chapel.  They hear lessons from the Bible and learn of God’s great love for all mankind.  Praising Jesus with singing and dancing and praying round out the Chapel experience.

There are lots of fun events in October: Pancake Breakfasts, Annual Harvest Party and Class Costume Parties.  Please check your child’s calendar for specific
May the Lord Bless Your Family With His Joy and Peace,
Darlene Thauland
