I love this time of year. The beauty of the changing season is truly breathtaking. It is that time of year where we start wearing cozy clothes and sipping/eating pumpkin spice anything. We have made it a month in and I can’t believe how fast it all goes. We had a successful "not back to school event" which was different than previous years but hopefully you were able to connect with some old friends and perhaps make a new one or two. "Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all." ~ Stanley Horowitz Community In Action! In this segment of the newsletter I plan to showcase the photos that you submit to me from field trips, events & co-ops! Clip and Climb field trip Clip and Climb was a great success! My kids and I weren't able to get out to this one but I have to say, I want to try it after seeing this photo. Thank you for sharing! Hiking The Mom and kids hiking group managed to get out in nature and enjoy some outdoor adventuring at Rolley Lake taking advantage of an absolutely beautiful day! I would love to get some more photos from gym times and the upcoming field trips in October. If you have any photos that you wish to share please feel free to contact me and we will get them in the upcoming newsletters. Nicole Nieuwhof Ideas for November ~ Reading Corner on Zoom ~ Poppy making workshop (paper flower making or painting) ~ Remembrance Day workshop with small history lesson ~ November 17 is National Homemade Bread Day, perhaps a workshop on bread making. Volunteers!!! RMHL group and all the amazing opportunities that it offers are only available due to the time and effort that our fabulous volunteers put into it. In these crazy times of social distancing, masks and caution about group events it can feel rather isolating. RMHL has acquired a zoom account and if you have any creative ideas, workshops, art projects or games that could be a fun activity for any and all age groups please come forward to plan a "zoom" event. As we near the colder season it is a great way to stay connected to our community! Calling all aspiring writers. Did you know that November is National Novel Writing month? The following is taken directly from the NaNoWriMo page, cited and link at the bottom! ".....each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with 50,000 words of a brand-new novel. You may know this mass creative explosion by the name National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo—but that's not all that NaNoWriMo is! NaNoWriMo is a nonprofit organization that supports writing fluency and education. But it's also a social network for writers like LinkedIn is for job professionals, or DeviantArt is for artists, or Facebook is for moms whose kids accept their friend requests only to provide them with "limited profile" access. It tracks words for writers like Fitbit tracks steps for the ambulatory. It's a real-world event, during which 900+ volunteers in places like Mexico City, Seoul, and Milwaukee coordinate communal writing sessions in thousands of partnering libraries, coffee shops, and community centers like… well, like nothing else. It's internet-famous. It's a community-powered fandom (before there was the Beyhive, or Nerdfighters, there were Wrimos). It's a start-up incubator for novels (books like Water for Elephants, Fangirl, and WOOL began as rough drafts in November!). It's a teaching tool, it's a curriculum, and its programs run year-round. Whatever you thought NaNoWriMo was, it is more than that." ~ Check our their young writers program HERE. To celebrate we thought we would call on all who love to write! Creative writing is such an amazing outlet for young and old alike. We would love to showcase some writing on the RMHL blog and I would love to include a submission in the November newsletter. All forms of writing including poetry, short stories or even an excerpt from a novel would be acceptable. Try this Scholastic story starters tool, a creative writing prompt generator that is both visually appealing and so much fun to play around with, check it out HERE. The following is from the scholastic story starters tool: Write a four line rhyme about a daring villager who walks the country from coast to coast! *Please feel free to share this prompt with your kids and I would love to read/share some creative stories that they come up with!!!! Momentum Ninja Gym We have an exciting gym time coming up in October/November. Check out some photos of this fun place!!! Contact Thank you for taking the time to read my October newsletter. Happy Halloween! Nicole Nieuwhof ~ IG @home_teach_mama~ Email:
