Little Lambs

Hello and happy Friday!

We continued our “Fun with Fall” theme by making a special leaf lens to spot the changing colors of leaves at the park!  Our leaf lens looks like a picture frame and reads: “What Leaf Colors Do You See?”  We colored the leaves on our frame with brown, orange, red, yellow, light and dark green crayons.  We’ll continue spotting the changing colors throughout the month of November.

We also learned our new songs “Leaves are Falling” and “The Scarecrow Dance.”

We learned about the upcoming holiday of Thanksgiving.  On Thanksgiving Day, we learned there’s a huge feast!  We prepared for our own feast by making corn on the cob.  We used Legos to paint yellow and brown kernels on our corn.  We pasted on green leaves called a husk.  What yummy looking corn for our feast, Little Lambs!

We continued our ABC Hand Print project with the letter “F!”  The teacher painted our hands the color pink.  We pasted on an eye and the teacher drew a black beak and bendy legs!  Can you guess what we made?  Flap, flap, flap!  We made fantastic flamingos for the letter “F!”  We even glued blue tissue paper to make water for our flamingos.  “F” says “fff fff” fish, fan, fork, flower, fly!  We colored a frog in the shape of a capital “F” too! 

We also learned the color brown.  We colored an acorn, a ant, an owl, a rabbit, and a worm all the color brown!

This week we also made a special craft for our upcoming Christmas performance next month!  Can you guess what we made? 

Wonderful work, Little Lambs!

Keep up the good work and we’ll see you next week!

Busy Bees

Hello and happy Friday!

This week the Busy Bees continued learning about transportation. We learned about vehicles that go on land. They were able to enumerate some land vehicles that they see around. 

For the craft, we made our own car by using toilet paper rolls. We painted the toilet paper rolls with any color that each child liked, and then we waited for them to get dry. We added some wheels and some cool stickers to our cars.

For the letter craft, the letter of the week is Ii. I is for igloo, ink, and ice cream. We made an ice cream for the craft. We also did some letter tracing and matching of the letters with our ABCs magnets.

Also for this month of November, the Busy Bees learned another upcoming holiday which is the Thanksgiving Day. On Thanksgiving Day, all kinds of food were cooked for the feast.  

For the craft, the Busy Bees made their own corn on the cob. They tore the yellow paper and they crumpled it to make kernels for our corn. Then, we used the green tissue paper for the green leaves called “husk”.

Great job, Busy Bees!

Have a nice weekend and see you all next week!

Hello and happy Friday!

The second week was another fun week of Thanksgiving crafts and activities.

We started the week with making our fruits and vegetables out of newspapers and construction paper so we could harvest and sell them at our farmers market. We made apples, carrots, oranges, blue berries and potatoes!

Every morning during drop off time the children get together to enjoy playing games, building blocks, puzzles and other activities.  Children are also called for individual reading with the teacher.  I am happy to say that the children are progressing very well!  Good job!

On Wednesday, the BB class joined us in making a thanksgiving craft.  The RR’s and CC’s made Indian corn!  Indian corn is a very colorful corn.  They are corn that are made of several different colors of orange, yellow, red, black, green and brown.  We tore construction paper and crumpled them in small pieces to make each kernel of corn.  It came out quite nice!!

On Thursday, we made a Fall wreath by cutting construction paper in shapes of leaves.  Then we glued them on a donut shaped paper to make a Fall wreath!  Beautifully job!

On Friday we have Show and Tell!  The children were asked to talk about what they did during the three day weekend.  It was nice to hear of the fun and exciting time they had with their family and friends!  A wonderful Show & Tell!

Enjoy the weekend and see you all back on Monday!
