This week we welcome the arrival of fall. The children will do a lot of fun things with leaves. We’ll set out on a nature walk and turn our findings into amazing crafts. We study the letter Ff by discussing the FIVE senses of autumn and make fireflies to hang around the room. We learn all about measuring in the kitchen when we work together to cook up a fall Krispy snack. We use our arms and hands to build a fall tree using finger-paints. We learn to count to 3 using our counting wheel and enrichment sheets. We continue to study more about the season autumn and our fall senses. The children finish the week by making a book about the animals of fall.

All of the children will earn badges for being Junior Fire Marshall.
