Week of October 14th

We were rocking and rolling this week while we introduced the letter Rr. We made rainbows and created our own robot. We used rainbow crayons and talked about Roy G Biv and the colors in a rainbow.

Continuing our farm unit, we read the book "Food From Farms" by Nancy Dickmann. Also, each boy planted their own bean seed. We talked about all the things that seed will need to grow.  To introduce the different parts of vegetables we eat, we read the book “The Vegetables We Eat” by Gail Gibbons and sorted pictures based on the different parts we eat. We had a wonderful time on our field trip touring the Agricenter Farmer’s Market. This tour reinforced the parts we eat of different fruits and vegetables. Is it the package, which is the outside; seeds, which are usually on the inside but not always; or both? We also talked about the different sizes, shapes, and colors of the fruits and vegetables. We ended our field trip with a hay ride and a picnic lunch- the weather was perfect! Thank you to all our parent volunteers- fun was had by all!

Looking Ahead:

Friday, October 25th- Grandparents Day ( half day dismissal)

Thursday, October 31st – Harvest Breakfast (11:00-12:00)

Friday, November 22nd – Thanksgiving Play @ 9:00
