Fall Fun

We played "Trees and Squirrels" again in the gym, now that we all know how to play we had a lot of fun getting a chance to chase each other 
Our exploration table was filled with soapy water and jewels. We practiced pouring and had fun collecting the jewels.

We created "Our Family" picture to put in our portfolio

Having the doll house has been lots of fun
Special Project on Friday: Ghost Soup
I gave the students 36 rolls of toilet paper and told them we had 2 rules:
1. You can do anything you want with the toilet paper as long as you don't bother anyone else
2. You can do anything you want with the toilet paper as long as you don't break anything
We wrapped it around chairs
Covered the floor
Wrapped each other into mummies
The room was coved in white fluffy paper
It was fun to slide on
and wrap around ourselves

and cover up in
We worked as a whole group and didn't have any problems  following our 2 rules.
It was a lot of fun.
 When we were done we made: Ghost Soup
toilet paper
shaved Ivory soap
Mix it together for an ooey goey clean mess

We also started our next project this week on instruments. We watched a few clips of an orchestra and the students sat down with me to tell me what they know about instruments (I still have a few that I need to add but here is what we have so far) You can zoom in and out and drag it back and forth to find your child's web.

Important Dates:

The Magic House is coming... November 7th and 8th for our first in school field trip.  This will be a great experience for all of our students, I can't wait to see what they are going to do for us.

Muffins for Moms: November 9th join your children for breakfast before school anytime between 7 AM and 7:45. Then stay for chapel if you would like. We will be going to chapel with the K-8th graders

Thanksgiving Food Drive Every year Zion Student Council sponsors a Thanksgiving food drive for the Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. The seminarians are young men studying to be pastors in our church. Many of them don't get the chance to go home for Thanksgiving so this is a great way for us to show our appreciation.  You can bring in Thanksgiving type non-perishables starting November 7 through November 15th. Our chapel offerings for the month will allow the Student Council to buy Turkeys to complete the meal boxes they create.
