October has flown by with a flurry of engaging activities and learning, and November has arrived with a cool strong wind promising more of the same. This month we will be thinking about all the things we are thankful for, such as all of God’s creations, the change in seasons, the first Thanksgiving, our families, and the friends we have made in Pre-K. We are truly blessed! As a class, each day throughout the month of November, we are keeping a list of what we are thankful for. This list is sure to become very long!

In Religion, we are learning about thanking God for the many blessings he has given us. We will learn about the Pilgrims and about the first Thanksgiving. As Thanksgiving gets near, we will have fun making our own butter and cornbread. We’ll be talking about families and the ways in which family members care for each other, and about how we can care for others.

During November, we will finish up our study of fall changes and begin to look forward to changes that occur as winter draws near. As little scientist, we have begun to develop our scientific inquiry skills, through hands-on exploring and observing, hypothesizing, and communicating results. Studying science is just as much fun as Math! In math, we will continue our ongoing study of numbers, counting, patterns, and shapes, focusing this month on solid shapes, their names and attributes, and continuing our work on word problems using objects.

In Language Arts, we have continued our practice in writing our names as well as our classmates. We will be finishing up our introduction of alphabet letters, sounds and actions, and begin to practice properly writing upper and lower case letters. Our fine motor skills are improving everyday as we color, cut, paste, and create throughout the day.

November is sure to fly by as we round out our learning with “movement” activities, learning new songs, rhythms, rhymes and games. Have a great month!
