At Morning Meeting, Jamie helped us sing The Days of the Week and Today is Monday All Day Long by pointing to each day while we sang. Harry showed us the leaves he collected when he was away visiting his grandparents. Nico also shared with the class the flowers she collected.
Next, we had Music with Evan. We sang Wake Up and songs about fall. The children had so much fun singing and dancing along.
For story today, we read Leaves by Vijaya Khisty Bodach and Fall Changes by Ellen B. Sensisi. We placed the leaves and flowers the children brought in the sensory table with magnifying glasses for them to look at during free play.
While they were exploring, Nico and Scarlett had a conversation:
"What do you have in your hands?" Nico asked Scarlett.
"Corn, " replied Scarlett holding an acorn. "I have 1, 2, 3 corn," she continued.
"It's not a corn!" Nico said giggling. "It's an ACORN!" and then they both giggled contagiously!
Then Scarlett turned to us and said "It's fun!"
At the end of the morning, Patricia (Brandon's mom) helped Brandon paint his ice cream cone costume. Brandon used his finger tip to make chocolate chips!
