Dear K-Kid Families,
Today I am sending home another permission slip. This one is for the Doak House Museum which I mentioned in the last letter. Children learn best with real experiences included. We are very fortunate to have rich hands on learning opportunities within driving distance. Our field trips are connected to curriculum standards and our trip to the Doak House provides opportunities to learn about how people lived long ago as well as help us to understand the time period of the first Thanksgiving. You can also help by sending in some artifacts to share with the students. These would only be looked at and not touched. Items such as pictures from long ago, butter churn, old tools, bonnets, anything from long ago. J They don’t have to be from the 1700 or even the 1800 just something old. We will be starting this unit of study next week. If the cost of these trips is a burden to anyone please let me know and it will be taken care of for you.
Thank yous go to Katherine, Amelia, Briar, Erin and Jack for the yummy autumn taste treats and visual treats. J These certainly enrich our learning and connect to curriculum standards as well. It helps us to learn about how the first settlers ate long ago.
Skating Event this Thursday. K and 1 leave for the Skate Inn at 11:30 and leave the Skate Inn at 1:15 to come back. You are certainly welcome to come and help your child skate or just to watch. You can walk around in your tennis shoes…you don’t need to skate.
No School for students on Friday, October 31st.
