Monday, October 25, 2010

We went outside today to enjoy another great day on the playground.

Willow Room- MWF class

We read "This is not a pumpkin" by Bob Stoake

We asked the children if they had ever carved a pumpkin? We also carved a real pumpkin today. We talked about how it the "feel", "smell" and what the insides of a pumpkin look like.

we made paper jack-o-lanterns using pumpkin shapes and cut out face pieces.

We sang 1,2,3,4,5, little pumpkins
If you're happy and you know it
Hands are for clapping

Maple Room

We read "The little old lady who wasn't afraid of anything" by Linda WIlliams

We made prints on paper using real pumpkins cut in half.

At the easel we had pumpkin shapes with stampers

We sang 5 little pumpkins, scarecrow scarecrow can't sit still, we acted out a pumpkin song, and we sang the October song.

We practiced writing the letters we have learned so far, A,B, C, D and we spelled two words we can spell with those letters, Dad and Bad.

Oak Room:

We read "Stellaluna" by Janell Cannon

We made bat prints with blue paper and a bat shaped stamper dipped in black paint.

We sang "Come and buy a pumpkin" and "5 green and speckled frogs".

We are beginning to talk about the letter " G" and we are also starting our unit on Nocturnal animals (which are animals who are awake and active at night instead of the day)
