We won our Red Ribbon Week Door Display:
tutorial here). I cute a slit in each cardboard tube and inserted the picture and hot glued it into place. The "track" was just a free hand drawing (by me! I am slowly getting more artistic as I age somehow!) that I cut out of black paper and then I painted the stripes on by hand. It is so stink' cute and I love seeing it every day! During a recent parent conference, one little guy kept insisting his mother "Come see my car!" and practically dragged her into hallway to see it lol!
We had a pumpkin in our sensory table for a few days. The children were fascinated, but most were reluctant to really dive into the "squishiness"! We did have a few takers though, who helped collect the seeds for roasting and used sporks to scrape out the insides!
When we got back from our trip we made Fall Collages by gluing the leaves to big sheets of paper!
We have dived right into learning and I am so proud of my kiddos! We are working towards being in the "Math Club" which means they get their name on this bulletin board:
Roll & Cover, which also helps with subitizing!
On Friday, one of my higher kiddos was already blending sounds together! It really is amazing how much they soak up, especially since most of our day is spent playing and singing/dancing! I'm breaking out my Terrific Turkey Pack again next week - my kiddos last year loved all the different activities, so I'm sure it will be a hit this year too!
Next week I'll also send home our Turkey Disguise Homework Projects! These always turn out so cute - and the parents always surprise me with their creativity. Some may quibble because the parents end up doing a lot of the work, but I figure the time spent together and conversations as they're creating the disguise are the real value of this project! You can grab my Turkey Disguise letter for free here!
Check them out!
Have a great weekend!
