Welcome to our class webpage! Here you will find pictures of the children and get a glimpse into all of the fun learning activities we have been doing.
We have been learning all about pumpkins this month. We have been learning about parts of a pumpkin, examining real pumpkins, painting pumpkins, hammering golf tees into pumpkins to improve our fine motor skills, and even cut open a pumpkin to see what was inside!
Two baby chicks and seven eggs have arrived to our school! We got to have the baby chicks in our classroom one day this week and the children were SO excited to see them! We have been talking about the life cycle of a chicken and will visit the seven eggs which are incubating in another classroom. We are looking forward to seeing the baby chicks hatch in the next two weeks!
Building with pumpkins and wood blocks, and playing with cars and trains.
Rainy days mean inside play but these kids know how to have fun! They loved throwing balls and balancing on our river rocks.
Table time activities including stringing beads, identifying numbers and letters, art, counting with pegs and spiders, puzzles, and Halloween playdoh.
The children have been busy outside developing their gross motor skills by running, rolling tires and tree stumps, and climbing. The children are working together to roll the tires and tree stumps. They have been making music on our outdoor xylophone and making new friends!
Music class with Ms. Karen has been so much fun exploring different instruments and ways to move to music!
The children enjoy center time! They are engaging in pretend play, working on fine motor skills, developing literacy skills, identifying parts of the body, exploring different art mediums, building with blocks, identifying shapes and colors, and sorting by color.
Fall has arrived in our classroom! The fall-themed sensory bin is filled with real corn, fake pumpkins, and fake acorns. Our Halloween sensory bin has black beans and Halloween erasers. The children enjoy scooping and dumping and developing their fine motor skills. Our dramatic play area has been filled with pumpkins, gourds, and apples so that the children can pretend they are at a pumpkin patch.
These first two weeks of school, the children have been busy exploring our classroom during center time. They have been building with blocks, playing with play doh, puzzles, and magnetic cars. They have explored different art mediums including paint and crayons.
Exploring our playground!
The children completed their first art project where each child made a handprint with paint and decorated their paper by gluing torn pieces of construction paper.
Each child decorated a sitting mat for use during our circle time. The sitting mats will help the children learn to identify their name and seat on our carpet.
