Went to Morgan's Market to buy pumpkins for our class! The children enjoyed exploring the pumpkins and cruising through the neighborhood. Commentary from the children included "Wow!", "It's bumpy!", and "Orange!". We loved the joy the children took from their pumpkin exploration and look forward to more pumpkin exploration in the future!
We explored coloring with markers on the easel.
...and also on our faces.
We explored dramatic play. These sunglasses were particularly a fan favorite this week!
We had lots of fun in the gym!
We had our first super soccer stars! Some of the children were tentative to get acquainted with coach JoJo at first, but were passing the soccer balls back and forth with him in no time!
We painted with our feet while listening to samba music - these sort of sensory experiences allow the children to further make connections in their environment while having lots and lots of fun.
We celebrated Emilio's 2nd birthday (our first birthday celebration for the 2A classroom - Nina is next!).
The children have been enjoying reading "Wheels on the Bus at the Zoo", so we read it for literacy this week and then each chose an animal and made our own puppets!
Had our first music class with Evan!
Celebrating Rachel's going away this morning! Thank you to our class parents for organizing such a lovely event for our 2A community. The children had such a great time coloring in onesies for Rachel's baby (who we can hardly wait to meet!)
Thank you for everything, Rachel! We love you and cannot wait to have you back and meet your little girl in the winter!
