Although we have had many days that the weather has told us differently, our calendar is telling us that fall is here! This week we read stories and did a craft to learn about the season of fall. We read “Let It Fall” and “We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt”. Both books you can discuss with your child the signs of fall such as the colours of the falling leaves. “We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt” is a wonderful story for movement with simple actions and repetitive text your child can read along with.
For our craft this week we made a tree that has leaves with fall colours. A teacher traced and cut out each students arm and hand for the tree and then each student glued on red, yellow and orange tissue paper as leaves. These beautiful fall trees are hanging up on our classroom bulletin board.
Music has been an important aspect of our Pre-K day. These are some songs that we have been singing in class and will continue to sing. These songs support early literacy and numeracy and are a good way to get us comfortable in the class (many children become comfortable singing along as a group before they are comfortable speaking in the group!).
