And just like that, we find ourselves being surrounded by the colors of fall. The season of gathering, harvesting, digging out sweaters, and enjoying the last bursts of color before the stick season is upon us. Our caterpillars have spun their chrysalises and we await their metamorphosis with excitement!
This week students completed their beautiful self-portraits with pride. We have been talking about how we are all unique and when we come together we create a magical community filled with many strengths and gifts.
During Math, we have been counting different objects and building our spatial awareness with block patterns.
In Literacy, we are retelling/acting out stories, learning basic concepts of how to look at a book, and how to share a book with a partner. We are using journals to practice our fine motor and observational skills.
ECO this week, students were introduced to the word Organisms. We explored the idea of a life cycle with a focus on plants and searched around for seeds. Kindergarteners were thrilled when they found seeds that prompted them to create a garden in the forest. On Friday we worked together to build a loom out in the woods. Kindergartners were excited to help carry the lumber up to the forest and then watched eagerly as it was assembled. Students then wove ribbons and natural materials together. It was a beautiful morning filled with teamwork and kindness.
