OCTOBER 2020 NEWSLETTER

Toddler Classroom: Ms. Brie

Parents of MLC, I would like to welcome you and your children to the month of October! This month I will be focusing on introducing Halloween into my teaching! My goal is to get the children in the Halloween spirit while still making sure they are learning! Sidenote: There is repetitive information in this newsletter that is from the last newsletter as it still applies! Now, here is what you need to know in my classroom this month.   

Rules/Expectations: In my classroom I do encourage self help skills throughout each school day! Every child will learn the following:

  • Self feeding (Using forks & spoons, throwing away their trash in the garbage bin, putting up their cups with straws when all done, and pushing in their chair when finished).
  • Independent dressing (I encourage them to put on their shirts, pants, shoes, and jackets on & off).
  • Getting their belongings in and out of their cubbies (Blanket, clothes, extra diapers).
  • Helping with daily classroom chores (cleaning tables, folding laundry, picking up toys when needed). 
  • Friendship (Sharing, taking turns, having nice hands with the other children).

Upcoming October Crafts: To get each child into the spooky spirit, I am planning a variety of October crafts for the week leading up to Halloween! I want to get them all involved and have them bring home their seasonal crafts that they’ll be proud of! I hope all of you will be too! 

 Upcoming Seasonal Events: MLC is planning a Spirit week for the week leading up to Halloween! That Thursday, feel free to bring a costume in for your children to wear so they may join in on the festivities! They also may come dressed in it as well, though make sure it is comfortable and will not hinder them from doing their normal school day routine. Please keep a close eye on the MLC website for upcoming information on Spirit week and any other important news!

Reminders: Please dress your children appropriately as the weather is going to be changing! I encourage all of you to bring in extra clothing for your children whether it be shirts, pants, or jackets. Sidenote: If you can, please bring in family photos as I tape them on the walls of my classroom. The children love seeing themselves, family members, as well as pets in photos and so do I!

Last but not least if you have any questions or concerns whatsoever do not hesitate to contact me!
