This week the boys and girls did some pumpkin exploration using their senses! The children were able to touch the pumpkin inside and out, smell it, decided what color it was using their eyes, listened to Ms. Laurel thumping on the pumpkin, but we did not taste the pumpkin!

This week Ms. Taylor made some pumpkin play-doh for the children to enjoy. The boys and girls had the chance to experience things from nature in the discovery tubs! There were sticks, leaves and scented pumpkin play-doh. The children really enjoyed using all their different senses to explore and create!

There’s a spider on the floor!

Today was all about spiders! Ms. Laurel brought in a daddy long leg spider for all the boys and girls to see during group time. Everyone was fascinated by the spider! We counted the spiders legs and talked about things that would be stuck on a spiders web. We read the story Spider on the floor by Bill Russell. Then the children had a chance to go up to the board and stick a “fly” on our spider web. It was very sticky!

We created some cool spiders today in the Toddler room! The boys and girls painted some styrofoam cups, added button eyes and I attached some pipe cleaner legs to make some awesome orange spiders!

Our group time activity this week is all about triangles! During group time the boys and girls stood on a triangle that Ms. Laurel taped to the floor. Then, the children counted the sides of the triangle. After that, they had a chance to come up to the board and match a triangle. The boys and girls were very busy!

This month is all about spiders. So during art, we experimented with painting with spiders! This activity had the children’s fine motor skills working, picking up those little spiders and stamping them on the paper. It is exciting to paint with something other than a paint brush!

This week during group time we read Autumn Orange by Christianne C. Jones. Ms. Laurel had a bag full of different items and each child was given a chance to pull out an object to identify. We encouraged the boys and girls to tell the class what they had found! Everything was orange!
