Week of October 1
Last week we studied about apples as the beginning of our Fall unit. This week we will focus on the changes in nature during this season. We will discuss fall leaves and their changing colors, cooler weather and acorns.
We will observe leaves changing outside and collect colorful leaves. We will sort leaves by type and color and use our magnifying glasses to examine the structure of the leaves and talk about stems and seeds. We will practice our math skills by counting acorns.
At the art table, we will use autumn colors for sponge painting. We will create collages with fall-colored tissue paper. We will use crayons for leaf rubbings and print with paint using acorn tops.
Our books will include Autumn is Here!, We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt, When Autumn Falls, Let it Fall, and Fall Leaves.
We are still collecting family photos for our upcoming family unit!
Please send utensils at lunch if needed. Thank you.
Circle of Friends will be closed on Monday, October 8 for Columbus Day.
