Indians and Pilgrims

                   In preparation for Thanksgiving we learned all about Indians and Pilgrims this week.  

The kids made Indian vests and headdresses.  In addition, the boys made hats and the girls made bonnets that look similar to those worn by Pilgrims during their voyage on the Mayflower.  Looking fabulous, PreK!

Adorable mice were made as an example of our letter of the week, m, and the kids enjoyed baking Monkey Bread for their cooking project.

Nutrition & Health

After all the candy from Halloween, we decided it would be a good time to talk about Nutrition & Health.  This week's topics of discussion ranged from eating healthy and exercising to germs and staying safe!  The children learned about the food pyramid and the foods that are healthy and unhealthy for us. They also did an art project to learn about covering your mouth when you sneeze or cough so you don't spread germs.
 By the end of the week, the children became "Safety Detectives" and earned their very own badge!

Pumpkins, Bats, & More!

Oh wow!  The children are so excited about this week and they have every reason to be!  We have so many fun activities going on!  All of the classrooms have different things planned with pumpkins like decorating a pumpkin to look like Mr. Potato Head, carving pumpkins and exploring the insides, compaing pumpkins based on size, shape, color, and feel.
Making Pumpkin Shakers!
On Wednesday, we had Pumpkin Rotations in the morning where the children got to go from classroom to classroom and do something different and fun in each room!  We had hand painting, Pin the Face on the Pumpkin, costume dress up, Go Fish, and creepy exploring boxes!
Reaching in to feel EYEBALLS!!

 Then, Wednesday afternoon, we had our Pumpkin Party!  Parents joined us and brought in delicious treats for everyone to enjoy!  After the children enjoyed a plate full of goodies, they did some fun games and art projects in their room!   
  Such a fun filled day and we are all exhausted!!
