THEME: IN THE ORCHARD and FABULOUS FALL
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, create apple print pictures and collect leaves for a fall collage. Our science center will have mini pumpkins, gourds, leaves and corn for exploration.
An acorn song we will sing this week:
I’m an acorn small and round (make circle with fingers)
Lying on the cold, cold ground (pretend to sleep)
Everybody steps on me (walk),
That is why I’m cracked you see (shrug)
I’m a nut, tsk, tsk, I’m a nut, tsk, tsk, I’m an acorn nut, tsk, tsk
The letter of the week activities are C is for cupcake and D is for duck.
