Looking Forward to October

October’s theme is Environmental Science. We will have plenty of opportunities for some hands-on fun and learning throughout the month. Take note – at the end of the month, October 31st, S-K will have its second annual Eco-Fair in lieu of Halloween. Each child (and staff member) will come to school with a costume made from recycled materials. We will have plenty of fun "green" activities planned as well.

Please let the children take the lead in designing their costumes – this should be a lot of fun! Here are some ideas to get you started:

Robot – use a box for the body, vent tubing from a dryer to make arms, veggie strainer for a helmet

Laundry basket – cut a circle from the bottom of a laundry basket to fit your child, make clothes pins for the suspenders

Flower – green sweatshirt and sweatpants, make pedals out of paper

Dalmatian – white turtleneck and white pants, put blacks dots on them, draw whiskers and a nose

Recycle Bin – Cut a hole in a box that has been decorated with the recycle symbol

Bunch of Grapes – Purple sweats with purple balloons

Bubble gum – dress all in pink

Pile of leaves – attach a bunch of paper or real leaves to a red sweatshirt
