Since the children have been so interested in leaves and the materials in the sensory table, we showed them pictures of trees with Autumn leaves. "What do you see?" we asked the children. "It's a tree! I see leaves! Red, orange, green, and brown." Harry said. At Morning Meeting, we explored tree bark by touching it and Harry noticed that it felt "hard."
During Free Play, the children painted with branches with a friend for our fall tree. Throughout the morning, we noticed that children were intrigued by the gourds that Lili and Jamie brought in by touching them and looking at them with magnifying glasses.
We celebrated Jamie's birthday after lunch! The Sunflowers and the Daisies classes joined us and we all sang Happy Birthday! While the children enjoyed eating cupcakes, we read Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMIE!
