Fall has finally arrived! Here are some of our autumnal activities:
Books We Read:
Pumpkins by, Ken Robbins
Pumpkin Circle: The Story of a Garden by, George Levenson
Pumpkin Pumpkin by, Jeanne Titherington
Each student chose a community helper costume from the Dramatic Play center and wrote about how they help the community in the Writing center.
In the Art center the children made a pumpkin with paper plates and crayons. They also colored pictures of the different stages of a pumpkin’s life cycle and sequenced them around their pumpkin plates.
The Math center had us counting kernels! Each child chose a number between ten and twenty and glued that amount of bead “kernels” onto a paper corn. They then practiced writing the number.
The class explored the insides of a pumpkin in the Science center. We cut open two pumpkins and the kids bravely pulled the squishy pulp out to investigate the seeds inside.
We baked a delicious apple crisp treat in the Cooking center.
Who was in the Barn?
