PICTURES FROM THIS WEEK! 

 

 

We learned all about Fall this week! The children really enjoyed using our parachute with fall leaves! We made the leaves jump up so high. Their laughter was contagious! We did this activity many times since they enjoyed it so much! We also made a beautiful fall collage to use as the backdrop for our Thanksgiving performance. We hope to see everyone there. More information coming soon as to the date & time. Please see below many other activities & projects we worked on this week. We will begin our Thanksgiving theme this coming week. 


 

Felt Stories:


-Little Mouse 

Little mouse, little mouse, 

Are you hiding in the Red house?

 

*We used a variety of colors with this felt story


-I Found an Apple on the Ground

I found an apple on the ground,

It looked delicious, red, and round.

I picked it up and took a nibble.

Oh my goodness!

There was a worm in the middle!

 

*We used a worm sock puppet. Each child was called up to unveil the worm! Most of the children thought it was funny when the worm popped out! Others not so much.


-Five Little Acorns

Five little acorns sitting inside tree,

Along came Mr. Squirrel as hungry as can be! (Rub belly).

Then the fall winds blew (Make wind sounds & wave arms).

And rustled all the leaves.

Down came Mr. Acorn,

 

And Mr. Squirrel was pleased!

Leaves are falling down.


-All the Leaves are Falling Down

All the leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down.

All the leaves are falling down, falling to the ground.

Red, orange, yellow, and brown. Leaves are falling down.

Take the rake & rake them up, rake them up, rake them up. 

 

Take the leaves & rake them up. I love autumn!


-Did you Ever See a Colorful Leaf? - (Tune: Muffin Man)

Did you ever see a colorful leaf,

A colorful leaf, a colorful leaf?

Did you ever see a colorful leaf,

Falling from the tree?

Oh yes, I see a colorful leaf,

 a colorful leaf, a colorful leaf. 

Oh yes, I see a colorful leaf,

 

Falling from the tree!
