Popcorn! Who doesn’t like popcorn!? We had a wonderful week of studying corn! We studied the different parts of the corn along with the different ways corn could be used. And of course, we had to get some kernels to make popcorn! They used their 5 senses to describe the popcorn. It’s amazing how you can incorporate all 5 sense into popcorn-making! The popping sounds, the white-ish and yellow-ish colors, the buttery smell, the soft yet bumpy texture and most importantly, the delicious taste! We were able to record most of the experience for your enjoyment and appreciation!
What a way to end our short week! We were so relaxed in our very stylish Pjs. We enjoyed some red apple, green apple, yellow apple races outside and watched a short movie during lunch time. The children especially loved the movie since it was Leap Frogs Letter Factory and they love knowing the sounds of each letter. We also created masterpieces with orange playdough and pastels on black paper. Check it out.
This month we read many different apple and pumpkin books such as; “Up,up, up It’s Apple Picking Time” by Judy Flickes Shapiro, “The Biggest Apple Ever,” “The Biggest Pumpkin Surprise Ever!” by Steven Kroll, “The Apples on the Tree,” by Steve Metzger, “Plumpy, Dumply Pumpkin,” by Mary Serfozo, “Too Many Pumpkins,” by Linda White, “The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything,” by Linda Williams and “ The Pumpkin Patch Parable,” by Liz Curtis Higgs. Some of these books are too long for some of our kiddos so we paraphrase them as we see fit. During circle time we picked special books to read and others were read through out the day.
Our pumpkin patch on the loft was decorated with all the pumpkins you all brought to class, it looks adorable.🥰 Today we all indulge in some popcorn and a movie and a gummy worm.
