This week we worked on building our names using different types of materials such as playdoh and building connectors. We also discussed what parts make up a letter….curved lines and/or straight lines. This helped the children identify what they needed to use or create in order to make their letter. This is a great activity to do at home with your child!
What a busy week! We started the week measuring pumpkins using different measuring items such as chain links and unifix cubes. The children measured the height as well as the circumference of the pumpkins then compared their findings to others. After that the children lined the pumpkins up in size order. On Tuesday, we painted the pumpkins and on Wednesday we explored the inside. Most of the children we excited to dig in but others were a little more hesitant.
After we took out some seeds, we counted them and I took them home to cook for the children to taste!!
The children also took part in a Halloween parade. Because our program doesn’t allow for children to wear their Halloween costumes to school, we used the ones in our classroom.
They had a great time leading the school parade as well as trick or treating around the school!!
