Whats happening in PreK and K Extended Day-
During the month of September the children explored the toys and learned the classroom rules and procedures. It was wonderful to meet new families and get to know your children, they worked very hard to created “All about me” books and we did an apples exploration unit which included apple prints, apple tasting and graphing, and baking. Please keep your eyes peeled for our art work in the hallway.
Through October we will be investigating the changes of fall, nature and creepy crawlers. We will be going on a nature walk, creating faces using leaves, twigs, and other artifacts the children collect outdoors, along with acorn art. We will be exploring leaves doing leaf rubbings, and prints as well. During our “creepy crawlers week we will be reading “The very hungry caterpillar” by Eric Carle and creating crafts along with using marbles and yarn to create spider webs.
In preparation for halloween the children will be exploring pumpkins. As a class we will be carving a jack-o-lantern. In carving the jack-o-lantern we will be exploring the different textures and components of the pumpkin.
