Our friends in older pod are having an unbeLEAFably good time out on the patio.
Our tiny hands are busy exploring fall sensory materials like goards, oats, dried oranges and cinnamon sticks!
We’re strengthening fine motor muscles as we scoop, pour and pick up small leaves and pumpkins. Also, we’re practicing important skills like sharing space, negotiating, collaborating and communicating with others.
Slime has also been a fall favorite!
With our water feature out of commission for the colder months, we repurposed the space with loose parts play! This is a great example of how we integrate important monthly shape and color concepts. In October, we put a strong emphasis on circles and the color orange. Circles are heavily featured in this open-ended activity that is designed to ignite imaginations.
Here, our older pod friends are making “pizza” together!
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese? Yes, please!
A few friends from Room 1 worked together to decorate an elaborate, multiple tier “wedding cake.”
We LOVE to move our bodies on the patio!
Hopscotch helps our friends develop body control, rhythm, balance, coordination and so much more!
Check out these balance beam buddies!
Apple picking on a balance beam is a huge challenge that our friends are up for.
Building together brings out big smiles!
Mr. Potato Head is a classic toy used to learn parts of a whole. Our friends are concentrating hard as they work to assemble unique variations.
The fall fun isn’t over yet! Stay tuned for more as we let the gourd times roll!
