Leaves and Autumn

So sorry we didn’t get our class page updated for Halloween! We had a fun filled week of Jack-o-lantern’s and Big Green Scary Monster’s.  I hope everyone had a fun and safe Trick or Treat on Saturday.

This week we will be talking about leaves and the season of fall.  We will do a beautiful fall leaf watercolor in art and collect different leaves to bring in for a show and tell.  We will go over the colors; red, orange, yellow and brown.  We have a leaf raking station at the train table and will practice our cutting skills on leaves in the sensory bins.  We will read The Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert and We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger along with a few other favorites.

Self Help :  It is already cooling down outside so jackets are a must.  Work on putting your jacket on by yourself and practice using the zipper or buttons on your own will be a big help.

Enjoy this book by Lois Ehlert, The Leaf Man
