Miss Kristin’s October News

Hello families,

Happy October! This is a month of great fun. We are excited to welcome the cool weather and the changing of the trees.  As the weather does get chilly, please make sure your little one has a sweater or jacket. The leaves are always a great focus of October. Their beauty and grace leaves so much to explore and learn from. We will be taking advantage of that any way we can! We love to set up a classroom outside with a gathering carpet for us all. We even bring materials to complete projects out there. This is so much fun.

October is fire prevention month. We will be reading stories all about fire fighters, trucks, and fire safety.

Our country of study is Mexico. We hope to follow the monarch butterflies as they head there in early October! We talk about their journey and the process of migration.

Halloween! The magic of Halloween is always a big part of October. We will be celebrating here at First Steps by dressing up, taking a walk all around our property and stopping at some teachers along the way who will drop a treat in our bags! Please send in your child’s costume and we will dress them here. I can’t wait for you to see the pictures of this day later through an email. 

Thank you so much for sharing your children with us,

All my best Miss Kristin
