Happy Friday! 1A had a great day of singing, dancing, and playing today. Also, a big thank you to Jude’s mom Jill for bringing in gourds for our class! The children were super excited to explore new materials from the outdoors alongside their new pumpkins!

 

Our classical music specialist came into class this week – the children loved singing and dancing with her and expressing themselves through movement! Highlights include stomping around like elephants during loud parts of the music and tiptoeing around like mice during quiet parts of the piece.

 

Additionally, just a friendly reminder to bring in leaves on Monday if you can.  Janet and I would love to use them for sensory explorations and art projects!
