Scarecrows

This week we read about scarecrows. The story, “The Scarecrows Hat” is now a Book on the Shelf work choice. I am always amazed how after reading a story one time,  how much the children are able to remember what happens next and with which character.

Pumpkins

It has been a busy week with fall activities. We read a story about a little a boy named Johnathon that finds a seed. He planted it to see what kind it was.  We found out that the plant growing had a vine for its stem and tendrils on it.

Five Senses

Last week we talked about the sense of sight and touch. We read about some children that are blind. I have the book, The Ugly Duckling, in Braille. We look at it and compare it to the same book in English. I ask the children why the braille one doesn’t have any pictures and a discussion follows. The two books are on the shelf as a work choice for the children to use.

We talked about sunflowers in the fall. They are ready for seed harvesting! The children enjoyed making sunflower at the art table and tweezing out the seeds from a dried sunflower.
