The past month we have been busy with Thanksgiving and Chanukah so we thought we would spend some time talking about Fall and focus on Winter after vacation. Our leaf hunt was so much fun! The children were so excited to find so many colorful leaves. We brought the leaves back to our class & used them for projects. The children are getting very good at naming the correct colors of the leaves. Their counting skills are developing nicely as well. Many of our circle stories, books, & felt board stories help introduce early math. It’s wonderful to hear some of the children counting as they play. We will continue with our Fall theme next week & we will begin our winter theme after break. We also wanted to thank you all for coming to the Chanukah performance. Weren’t our students great? We think so! Enjoy your weekend.
