Just like that, the first month of school is just...gone. And it seems as though right on cue with the seasons changing on paper, the weather changed with it. As I sit writing this I can see the grey skies and hear the gusting wind shaking the changing leaves. It's hoodie season, folks!
We have really enjoyed getting to know our new second grade friends, and seeing how much our third grade friends have grown over the summer! Our days have been super busy! These kiddos have tons of positive energy and it has not been hard to get them engaged in things! We have had huge kick ball games outside during free play, our structured gym games always have eager participants, and the project tables have been packed day in and day out. We created countless fuse bead creations, made clay necklaces, and art pieces are beginning to adorn the room. The walls tend to look blank at the beginning of the year intentionally - and watching them fill with MAPster art is one of things we so enjoy seeing!
We are excited for October! The weather is already peak New England Fall and as the leaves fully change, Wheelock is a truly magically place to be outside at! We will be continuing to spend lots of time outside, so be sure that your children are dressed appropriately so they can enjoy the best the season has to offer! We have a full day coming up Wednesday, and a half-day for Halloween ahead of us. Spooky Season is always fun! We're looking forward to some spooooooooky shenanigans as we get closer to Halloween!
