WEEKLY UPDATE: OCTOBER 15 – 19, 2018

Theme: Autumn Leaves

Autumn is in the air and in the classroom as we explore this colorful season. At circle time we will talk about the signs of fall, the changes that fall brings and some of our favorite fall activities. We plan to paint with fall colors at the easel, practice scissor skills by cutting out leaf and pumpkin shapes and we’ll collect leaves from the playground to collage. Our sensory table will have mini pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn for exploration. A few of the books that we will be reading include:

When Autumn Comes, by Robert Maass

Red Leaf, Yellow Leafby Lois Ehlert

The Apple Pie Treeby Zoe Hall

Leaf Manby Lois Ehlert
