The Fall: Orange, Red, Yellow and Brown

fall

Prek 4 ( Adele Leeds ) 

F is the letter of the week. We’ll take a nature walk and look for signs of Fall: orange, red, yellow and brown leaves, acorns and the squirrels and chipmunks collecting them.

We’ll be busy at project time making flags, fish( with our handprints ), frogs and the faces of our families.

We’ll practice writing Fs, 4s and 5s and use goldfish for a math counting/ addition activity.

To challenge the childrens’ visual observation skills and introduce the concept of symmetry, I’ll give each child a paper with one half of a jack-o-lantern  face and ask the child to complete the picture by drawing the missing parts of the face to match the other side.

Ask your child to do the “Five Little Pumpkins” poem and finger play. We’ll be practicing it at circle time!

The children are working so well in their workbooks and on their worksheets!
