Taking care of babies is always important                                   Pumpkin creations

Answer:  Mrs. Evans favorite Christmas gift as a child was a dollhouse that her mom and dad made for her.

This week we were able to design and carve a pumpkin.  We also learned what the word “circumference” means and found the circumference of our class pumpkin.  We also had fun being scientists and making pumpkin observations. 

Ask your child:

  • What the word “humility” means. (hint:  Mr. Bradshaw taught us what it meant to be humble.)
  • Pretend a friend came to you and said, “Wow! I really like that picture you drew!!!”  What would be a humble response and what would be a not so humble response?
  • To read these words: can, mat, map, fan, lap.
  • What the word “circumference” means. What does “estimate” mean?
  • What was new in the math center this week? (hint:  estimating  and checking)  What was new in the texture tub?  (hint:  foil boats)

Memory Verse:  Same as last week – “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”  By Christopher Robin

Heart Words: Yes, No, It


  • If you look on the class website and whisper to me the answer to this question, I will give you a surprise. Question: What was Mrs. Evans favorite Christmas gift as a child. (www.entperpriseschool.org)

  • To tell you the 2 parent visitors from our community that came to class.
  • What was your favorite part of the pumpkin patch
  • To tell you the problem in the Story The Little Red Hen. (hint:  she had to do all the work.)  Do you think it was fair that she did not share the bread at the end of the story?  Why or why not?

I hope you all had a wonderful week. I look forward to creating our own community next week!  I will supply a paper bag, or your child can bring in a box (approximately the size of shoebox.)  They can also bring extra supplies if they want. 

Ask your child:

  • To describe how they created their “green frog.” What did they use to make it bumpy?
  • To show you the signs and tell you the sounds for the entire alphabet! Do your best!!  (www. youtube Nellie Edge sign language” can help if you are interested.)
  • What should they do if they see a lighter or matches nearby? Where is a safe place for the family to meet in case of a home emergency?
  • To say your mom’s first name. How many beats or syllables to her name?  Say it!…clap it!…stamp it!…tap your head1…count the beats!.  Can you do this to one other family member’s name – and yes it can be a pet.  :O)
