The first nine weeks of school came and went in a flash! Our theme this month was Harvest Time: The Plants Around Us. The children learned about the importance of plants. We reviewed, drew, matched, and labeled parts of the plant and its life-cycle.
We dissected one pumpkin for viewing and removed the seeds of another. Pumpkins produce so many seeds, that we were able to plant some back in the pumpkin, some outside on our playground, and even take some home to grow. So far, all of our seeds have sprouted!
One of our talented room mothers brought in roasted pumpkin seeds for us to taste and even made a sensory basket for us!
We were very busy preparing for Halloween. We made several art and food crafts and learned several spooky songs.
We also spent our mornings practicing old lessons and receiving new ones.
On Halloween, our sweet costumed bunch stayed busy.
