Mrs. Kort and Mrs. Charity MWF 3 plus Knoch Knolls October 16-30

Our Halloween celebration was a great success!  Our class sang "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" so very well.  Thank you to all the parents who came to decorate a pumpkin and enjoy the performance.

The past two weeks we have had so much fun learning about the Letter P!

The pizza parlor was open for business and we baked pizza pies and tried many different toppings and the pet shop was also a favorite in dramatic play.

 Our class got to play in rice to find the hidden piggy tails to match to the same color piggy bottoms.  We explored orange colored rice to find the hidden bats and even washed our pumpkins!
