St. Paul Nursery School Newsletter October 2022
Happy fall y’all! We were blessed to begin the month with our field trip to Grisamore Farms. The weather was a little chilly at times, but we were so excited to once again pick pumpkins and apples, take a wagon ride, feed some animals and have a good time! We brought our learning back to preschool and Mrs. Darby taught the children letters C, D, and E. We practiced making the sounds for each letter and then traced the upper and lower case formations of each. We made projects for caterpillars, crocodiles, clouds, ducks, dogs, elephants, elbows, and eggs. We took a time out from learning our letters to celebrate the Fall Harvest with a party! Children made treat bags, carved a pumpkin, and played pin the nose on the pumpkin. A special “thank you” to Nursery School Board member, Mr. Randolph for donating enough pumpkins from his field for each child in class to take one home! Thank you to all of our preschool families for all of the goodies for our party. Your generosity for the supplies and treats made the morning special! If you missed out on donating for this party, no worries! We will have lots more in the future. (We LOVE parties at preschool!)
During Bible story time, we learned there are many men in the Bible who loved God and taught others about him! One man, named Abraham, taught us God is everywhere! As long as we have Him in our heart, He is with us wherever we go. We can take Him to the grocery store, in the car, at preschool, at the park, even in outer space! Abraham also asked God for a child. Abraham was worried he would never have a family with his wife Sarah. God told Abraham to look up at the stars and count them. As many stars were in the sky, he would have in his family. WOW! That’s a lot of children! God kept His promise to Abraham. Abraham and Sarah had two sons. We discovered that God will always keep His promises to us. Jacob had a wonderful dream for “D” week. He dreamt about Heaven with God and lots of angels. We learned that God and His angels will protect us and keep us safe no matter where we are. He will also always love us and forgive us. During Harvest week we talked about the Pumpkin Parable. Did you know we are all like pumpkins? Yes, it’s true! We are each a little different, but still loved and picked by God. God’s love helps clean out the “goop” (sin) and His love shines brightly inside each of us! I love seeing how happy and excited the children get when they find out about God’s love for them! They really do shine His light!
