This week the pre-k two’s class will be exploring the letter F for Fall. We are going to have fun outside with nature and pick out some beautiful fallen leaves for one of our fall projects. We are going to paint with a feather too.
I would like to expose your little ones to homemade finger paint , which we will make together. Have you heard about our sensory table? It is filled with artificial leaves, cinnamon scented pine cones, gourds, hay and little letters. It is a great new addition to our room and your children love spending time with their tiny hands in the table exploring.
We will start exploring our 5 senses! Our first sense we will explore is sense of sight! I hope to do this outside, if Mother Nature cooperates. Stay tuned!
