We are so excited this week. We were able to get outside to our play yard. We are looking forward to spending time outside with our friends. Since we love music, we’re finding it to be a lot of fun to stand up at our mirrored bar and dance. We especially like to watch ourselves. We’re doing tummy time and some of us are rolling around on the floor. We’re getting around one way or another.
We were introduced to the play tunnel. Some went through, some did not. We will keep trying. We love when Ms. Lu reads to us. Our book this week was The Biggest Pumpkin Everby James Dean and our song was “One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pumpkins.”
This week in Peapods II our theme was pumpkins! We decorated our pumpkins orange with dot markers to hang on our window. We also played with a bag full of pumpkin seeds. They were really squishy. Ms.Robin gave us a real treat with a new song “No More Pumpkins Jumping on the Bed.” Our book of the week was Pete the Cat Five Little Pumpkins by James Dean.
This week in Little Sprouts, we talked about pumpkins. We got to look at a pumpkin and touch it. We knew it was orange and we said it was bumpy. For art, we made a dot art pumpkin, colored a pumpkin with crayons, and made a mosaic pumpkin out of a paper plate and construction paper. In our sensory bin, we still had our fall leaves but next week we will be putting the guts from our pumpkin in it. We can’t wait to touch the guts! We sang “Five Little Pumpkins,” “I’m a Little Pumpkin,” and “Pumpkin, Pumpkin.” Our book this week was The Pumpkin Book by Gail Gibbons. We enjoyed our Stretch-N-Grow class with our coaches, Elefante music class with Miss Michelle, and music and movement with Miss Robin. We will be continuing our pumpkin theme next week and we will be carving a pumpkin!
This week in Beanstalks, we learned all about pumpkins. We learned about what pumpkins look like, feel like, the parts of a pumpkin, and what you can make out of it. As a class we carved a pumpkin to make a Jack O’Lantern. We read Apples and Pumpkins by Anne Rockwell. We made all kinds of pumpkins using paint and crayons. We continued to work on letter recognition and some of our friends spelled their names correctly for the first time! As always, we had a lot of fun playing during Stretch and Grow and singing and dancing along with Elefante Music!
