Our kids took a neighborhood walk to find fallen leaves. The children collected them during the walk and some even brought some in from their trek from school to home. The leaf collection had a purpose. In the classroom, Ms. Ashely read Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert and our students were really engaged by the beautiful illustrations and hidden animals they saw in the leaves. “A leaf man goes where the wind blows,” and the leaves blew right into our classroom and made the art center its home. They used the leaves along with materials we received from our Beautiful Stuff for Beautiful Learning project and created stunning works of art. Their creativity was unleashed during this time and they were introduced to using glue bottles and scissors. Please stop by to check out our Science Scene bulletin board and see if you can spot your child’s work!
We are mid way through the month and very excited to see what else October has in store for us! As the temperature drops and snow may soon be in the forecast we want to make sure all our children are warm and prepared to play outdoors.
When the weather starts getting colder, we will give out the winter attire. We ask that your child bring them to school every day during the winter. They may use them outside of school whenever it is needed but please make sure they have it for outdoor play as well! After the winter, it is theirs to keep.
We do hope to get some healthy snacks for our kids through DonorsChoose.org. If you would like to spread the word or support it yourself, the link is below.
