Week of November 16th!

November Theme – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

For the next five weeks, students will be learning about Recycling.  We will be discussing the different items that people recycle, what happens to our trash, and why we recycle.

Some of the books we will be reading this week are:

What Happens to our Trash by D.J. Ward
Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch

Hush! A Thai Lullaby by Minfong Ho

Lessons and activities for the theme: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle 

Art – Children will have collage materials such as paper scraps, tinfoil bits, old magazines, newspapers, and cardboard pieces.
Blocks – Students will have empty boxes of various sizes and toy garbage trucks.
Pretend Play – Students will transform pretend play into a recycling center.
Writing - Students will be able to draw a picture of what they learned from the classroom read-aloud regarding recycling. 
Library - Students will have books about trash, garbage, and recycling.

Family Partnerships: 

     We would like to ask families to contribute to our classroom "junk collection" by bringing in junk from home—items that typically get thrown away, e.g., paper towel rolls, old magazines, plastic bottles, cartons, and broken things. Please check all items and make sure they’re safe; rinse containers and remove items with sharp edges. Thanks so much!
