Noah, Noah. Noah built the ark. 2 by 2. Floating zoo, just as God said to do.
This week we had a lot of fun learning about Noah. We got to dress up and act out the story as well as work together to make a collage. We also love the new song we learned about Noah!
We also read a fun story about Robins. We learned how they make their nest and take care of their eggs, and the baby birds. We had fun exploring painting with feathers. The feathers make a wispy stroke compared to the paint brush. We also drew pictures of birds and we made "Wordles" (www.wordle.net) of everything we know about birds. You can see the these in the hallway.
Next week we will start doing some research on birds. Each student will get to find a picture of some kind of bird online and will learn something about the bird. We will also be practicing how to form letters.
Mrs. Kuhlmann will be starting our DIAL-3 assessment next week. Students will be pulled out of class and go through the assessment with her. If you have any questions about the assessment please talk with Mrs. Kuhlmann.
Book Orders came in this week. I hope that everyone enjoys their books. Thanks to all the parents who placed orders this month, we will have $18 to spend on books for the class next month! Book Orders for October will go out next week.

Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent Teacher Conferences will take place on October 21 and 22. Please take note that Preschool will not have school on either day to give us time to meet with all of our parents. As we get close to conferences, I will ask you to let me know if there is a time frame that works better for you. Each conferences is 15 minutes long and all of the teachers at Zion work together to make our schedule for families with multiple children at Zion. We will take time during the conference to review the DIAL-3 screenings.
Picture retakes will take place on Monday, September 27th. If your child didn't have pictures taken on final registration day on July 29th, please have their picture taken on retake day. For student who have school on this day, we will make sure to take them to get their picture taken. For those who are not at school this day you can bring your child to the church basement anytime from 9AM- 11AM. These pictures will be used for the class picture and the school yearbook!
