The kids seem to have more fun on our second day of snow fun. They were pros at climbing on the sled and enjoying the ride down the slope. We had a snowball fight and even got to make a bigger snowman. Hip, hip, hooray!
What an exciting day we had outside our parking lot. We touched the snow. We climb on the hill and slide down on the sled. We threw snow ball at teachers and our friends too. We also attempted to make a big snowman but ended up with a little one.
Our air quality was good today so got to enjoy our outdoors. Hooray!!!
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.
In preparation for Stone Soup we began reading Fox Tail Soup by Tony Bonning. We also tasted and painted with all kinds of vegetables. The children had lots of fun using prior knowledge from our story to make their own Stone Soup in our dramatic play area. They had the opportunity to practice holding a knife and cutting pretend Velcro vegetables. We had the chance to utilize our sensory table by giving the children a chance to wash and scrub some toy vegetables. With this lesson the children learned that vegetables are healthy and nutritious and will make their bodies big and strong Thank you for our amazing parent who volunteered and made some amazing soup.
Exploring and introducing the forest this week was fun, and to talk about the creatures we see out there was like second nature to them. The children recognized lots of animals, nature items and sleeping outdoors. How amazing it was to see the children be familiar with the outdoors “Forest” and how they connected to the beauty outside. Ooh!. We found a branch outside and brought it into our class to explore.Let’s have S’mores Fun! 🥰😎👩🏼🍳👨🏽🍳
