This week our THEME is Pumpkins and Ghost and our letter of the week is B. Miss Coli, from the Camden County Library in Camdenton, came for her first visit of the new school year. She will make monthly visits to share some stories with the children. Today, she shared 2 books and we did a marching song and an egg shaker song. We love our visits with Miss Coli! Thank you so much for coming and we will see you next month! We made a Halloween Sensory Table that we will be playing with the rest of the month; It has black and orange rice, plastic bats, spiders and bugs, test tubes, and tweezers. We made pumpkins, Jack-O-Lanterns, and a pumpkin patch out of play dough, and did Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate. One of our kiddos brought in a bunch of beautiful white roses, we decided to turn it into a Science Experiment so we put them in cups of food coloring and water. We will be watching them this week to see if anything happens!
If your clothes catch on fire don’t run, that will make the fire get bigger! If your clothes catch on fire, drop to the ground, cover your face, and roll back and forth. The children all practiced stop, drop, and roll today. We added fire to our block center, and talked about how it is never okay to play with real fire. We also used different shades of red, yellow, and orange crayons to create our artwork. Some of the children discovered that you could color with 3, 4, or even 5 crayons at the same time. Our song of the week is Hurry, Hurry, Drive the Fire Truck http://www.kididdles.com/lyrics/h027.html but I am warning you, it will get stuck in your head!
REMINDER: We have special visitors coming tomorrow to talk to the children about Fire Safety! Book Orders are due today!
