Autumn Leaves and Apples in the OC - Teacher Christine

This week in the OC we celebrated the treasures of the fall harvest - apples! We also explored outside to find signs of fall - leaves, pine cones, and so much more.

On Monday we began a two-day project creating apple collages. The children painted their apples with glue and then covered them with newspaper strips. This was a great chance to practice their scissor skills!

On Wednesday, they painted their apples and got to practice writing the letter A for apple! The finished apples look so cute and are displayed in the classroom. Come take a look!

We filled our memory boxes with treasures from our October and Halloween units. 

On Wednesday we went on a fall scavenger hunt and created a nature collage with our friends in room F!

On Friday we worked on our pencil grips by  "carving" designs into pumpkin scratch paper. 

We practiced our letters by playing apple bingo!

We had lincoln logs, trucks, and traffic signs on the building table.

The play dough station was full of bakers making apple pies and cakes.

The children had a lot of fun problem solving and building structures with translucent blocks at the light table.

Here's a look at your children playing around the room! We have many artists who love to spend time at the creation station.

All of the children are engaged in collaborative play and love to build blocks together, dress up, and play games!

We start our circle time with a deep breathing exercise or yoga. This week we learned a fun pumpkin yoga sequence.

We had fun reading books about pumpkins, squirrels and bears. We read Clifford's First Autumn and Clifford even came by to say hi! We also learned a variety of new autumn inspired songs.

The children love this beautiful fall weather.

Next week we continue to marvel at all of the changes fall brings!
