We read "The mouse and the apple" by Stephen Butler.  We also read a story called "Cows"

We asked "Have you ever had to wait and wait and wait for something? We talked about using patience while we wait for something and throughout the day we reminded the children to have patience while waiting for something.

We used apple shape sponges dipped in red, yellow and green paint and made apple prints.

We had oil pastels at the easel.

We did "Couch potato pokey", "5 little ducks", and "the freeze dance" using ribbons too.

We did some apple rhymes using felt apples.

We did a cutting project today, the children cut on the lines on some orange paper and it turned into a pumpkin lantern.

We had alphabet stampers at the easel.

We did The October song, and pretty leaves for music time

We did letter D activities- the alphabet monster ate things that start with the letter D and we had to guess  what items he ate.  We did the Letter D book, and we asked "Do you have the letter D in your name?

Maple room- afternoon class

We are still learning about colors- today we did the color white.
We read "Pete the cat" I love my white shoes" by Eric Litwin

For art- we wrote each child's name on white paper with a white crayon.  They will paint the paper with watercolors and the paint does not adhere to the crayon so their name will appear.

We used twirly brushes to paint with today, although most of the children did not paint.

We had rice with small toys in them at one of the tables - this was a big hit.

We did "Can you leap like a frog?" (an action dance), and "The airplane song"- using the ribbons to move in fun ways.
