At Morning Meeting, Max and Scarlett tried on their Halloween costumes. Brandon and Hudson were excited to see theirs but were not ready to put them on. We talked about how we are dressing up and wearing our costumes on Thursday for Halloween. We explained to the children that will be marching in the Halloween Parade with the Sunflowers and the Daisies' classes and that we are going to have a pizza party to celebrate afterwards!
Then we glued more leaves to our branches with a friend. We painted with marbles with white paint on black paper and painted paper pumpkins with branches. Hudson picked out the The Itsy Bitsy Spider as told and illustrated by Iza Trapini for us to read and sing. The children each held a spider during the story. "Again! Again" The children clapped when we were finished reading. We read and sang the story again for them. Then we sang There's A Spider on the Floor using spiders as props, 5 Little Pumpkins, and Witches on a Broomstick. We are looking forward to a very Happy Halloween!
