We had another awesome day at preschool!
During circle time, we discussed our October theme, “Down on the Farm.” The kids learned about pumpkins! We even learned a new song called, “Where is pumpkin?” Then, we reviewed our calendar time. We also read the story, “Spookly the Square Pumpkin.”
Next, we made two pumpkin crafts. Each student glued black pieces of paper onto an orange sheet of paper to make a jack o’ lantern. We also used paint to make three little pumpkins. Both of our crafts will be for the scrapbooks.
After recess, the kids had learning circle time. Today, we learned all about the color orange. We did a classroom scavenger hunt for orange items. We also read the story “The Ugly Pumpkin.”
Next, we did a super fun science experiment. We mixed borax, water, glue, and food coloring to make orange flubber! Each student was able to bring some flubber home.
Since today was Phoebe’s birthday, her mom and dad brought in special treats for our class. We were able to have cupcakes, noise makers, a puzzle, silly putty, and get our faces painted like a cat or a dog! It was super exciting!
Next, we had center time. The kids colored pumpkins, sorted color blocks, and played with their flubber.
We finished the day with our closing circle time. Overall, it was a great day!
At home, you can work on color recognition and practicing using scissors.
