This week in school, we will go camping in dramatic play, make fall leaf art for our class tree and to bring home, taste different types of apples, and go on a nature walk. We'll be recording our observations in our journals too. We'll also be making patterns with fall things like squirrels, nuts, and leaves.
Help your children explore fall by pointing out the wonderful changes that are happening in our neighborhood right now! Go on a leaf hunt and compare and contrast the leaves you find. Search for other signs of fall like migrating geese in the sky, cool weather, and pumpkins!
Also, we're integrating a lot of math this week with sorting and patterns this week. These are usually easy concepts to review with your kids, because they can be done with anything! Sort laundry, groceries, or toys as part of every day chores. Make a pattern with blocks, and ask your child what comes next. See if they can make a pattern for you!
