    Mrs. Baughman’s Kindergarten Class      

    October

               Fall is such a fun time here in Room 107.  We studied apples and were able to eat them in different ways.  The class graphed which apple they liked best; red, yellow, or green.  In our class more students liked yellow the most.  We will finish the apple unit by making some yummy apple sauce on Thursday, October 17th. 

               We will be taking a field trip to the Herr’s Factory on Monday, October 28th  to see how wonderful snacks are made. 

    The students will learn about Fire Safety this month and take a walking trip to the Oxford Fire House on Tuesday,  October 29th from 12:45-2:15.  Discuss at home what your family plan is in case of a fire.

    We will be having our Fall Harvest Party on Thursday, October 31st from 1:45-2:30.  We will begin with fall centers and then have a yummy party.  Parents are welcome to attend and help.  Also, if you need to bring a younger child, please only come to the food part of the party which will begin around 2:15.

    On Thursday, October 31st the class will get a chance to show their decorated masks for our annual mask parade.  More information will be sent home soon.
