We were so lucky to have Cole's mom Rebecca come into our class today and make pumpkin muffins with us. Each child participated in the activity by mixing the ingredients in a large bowl until they were blended, and then scooping the batter into individual muffin cups.

While our muffins were in the oven baking, we went on our first walk outside together as a Pre-K class. Each child had a partner as we walked around the block to prepare for our longer walk to the park next week! 

The children had a great time and enjoyed eating the muffins after! 

  • When we returned we asked the children discussed what went well during our walk and these were some of their responses:
    • Tessa: Nobody let go of hands!
    • Ines: Nobody went far away.
    • Della: No one got lost!
    • Artemis: Everyone walked nicely.
    • Dylan: No one stepped on anyone's shoes. 
    • Mishaan: Everybody listened to the rules.
