We had so much fun in the month of October! The children really enjoyed learning about pumpkins. We focused on 6 different types of pumpkins (Cinderella pumpkin, cheese pumpkin, small sugar, blue Hokkaido, white pumpkin and winter luxury). We covered the life cycle of a pumpkin as well as the parts of a pumpkin and we had a great time carving a cheese pumpkin and counting how many seeds it had! The children also had a great time with our specialists! They love gardening with Miss Katherine, learning Spanish with Miss Courtney and doing music and movement with Miss Amy. They really look forward to seeing them every week.
Practical Life was quite popular in the month of October. The children practiced works such as pumpkin washing, sweeping, tonging with chopsticks and using a screw driver!
We took a few trips to the nature trail and explored our surroundings, the children collected leaves and sticks which we were able to use for art projects. We will continue exploring nature in the month of November as we move on to our new unit of fruits and vegetables. We will explore the difference between fruits and vegetables, the parts and the life cycle of different fruits and vegetables and we will kick off our parent volunteer program by doing a food prep project. We are really looking forward to another wonderful month!
