We are so excited to celebrate fall and all of the fun we are planning! We went on a scavenger hunt to find things that happen or that we see in the fall, like orange and red leaves, scarecrows, pumpkins, bare trees, and chestnuts.
We made a collage by cutting out items from our scavenger hunt and gluing them on paper. We practiced our letter formation by writing some of the words too.
We made farm scenes with animal stickers and "hay". It's fun to see how different their creations are with the same exact materials available.
Math & Science:
We are playing a "Roll and Stamp" game in our Math Center, as we roll dice and count the dots, and then find it on a barn and stamp it.
We made bird feeders as we discussed what birds do when the weather gets colder, and how they migrate to find food and stay warm. Some birds do not migrate so are happy to find a bird feeder in the fall and winter! Some children tried tasking a sunflower seed. I told them it's like a chocolate brownie to a bird. They didn't really believe me. :) .
We are writing the letter "Dd" and learning how to tell a "d" from a "b"!
We matched upper to lower case letters, helping the pigs find the mud with the matching letter.
We wrote We decorated cards for Ms. Yonan's birthday and wrote special messages along with "Happy Birthday" as we colored her pictures and added stickers.
The children are signing their names each day as we practice our letter formation. Tracing first helps remind them of the letters and scale so their writing is smaller. Children will fill an entire page with one letter at this stage. We will work on scale throughout the year and making our letters and words smaller to fit together on lines. Most all of the children are still working on their tripod grip. We practice "pinching" the fat pencils and markers to hold them correctly.
We had fun with our third grade reading buddies and were interviewed by them to learn more about each other. It's such a special time to share with our older friends!
We had an all school photo taken by a drone outside. They loved seeing the drone flying around, although it was difficult for them to visualize what the photo will look like from above. It's fun to talk about different perspectives with them.
Everyone practiced counting in French and sang numbers as they marched and moved around the room. They are all learning to count to ten, colors, family members, weather, etc. We love the full emersion as the dialect becomes more familiar.
Have a lovely weekend!
