We started our morning by doing a coloring sheet with our new letter of the week, U! I am really starting to see many of the preschoolers take their time when coloring!
During circle time we read a story called “It’s Pumpkin Time!” and learned how a pumpkin turns from a tiny seed into a big orange pumpkin! The preschoolers were amazed to hear about this and to see the changes the pumpkin made as it grew.
When we went out onto the playground, many of the preschoolers pretended to “bury” pumpkin seeds and watch them grow!
Our centers of the day were reading pumpkin and Halloween books in the library, visiting a pumpkin patch in dramatic play, lacing some Halloween themed lacing cards, searching for pumpkins in the sensory bin and doing some ABC letter matching! The preschoolers were busy but had a lot of fun during centers!
Mrs. Wolfgram pulled the students out to make a pumpkin patch using their thumbprints. The preschoolers then connected the pumpkins with a vine!
I pulled the students out to work on forming our letter of the week! We used q-tips to make the letter U and focused on putting our q-tip right in the circle to make the U!
Our Harvest party is on Wednesday, October 28 from 10:30-11:30 and all preschoolers are invited to come!
If you have not, please send in your child’s grandparents’ day form!
Have a blessed evening!
