Acorns Everywhere !
Is it just me or are acorns a lot smaller than they were when I was a child ? The acorns seem to small . We read a book about a squirrel and his acorns today. He would gather, dig and busy, gather , dig and bury. We talked about why he might bury his acorns and what will happen if he forgets where he put them.
Ms Dallas played a game with letters and real acorns . The children would spin an acorn and then identify the letter it landed on.
We also made another color emergent reader. I encourage you to read the little books they make it school.
Our days are starting to flow a little easier this week. We are seeing less meltdowns and some of our friends are getting a little more control of their hands. We are spending less of our day saying ” Hands are not for hitting .” That is a good sign.
Some fun pictures of our day.
Gabrielle is investigating a small oak branch looking at the acorns still attached.
Boys play house too. Gage is taking care of his baby and giving it medicine.
This is a popular toy this week . It has a motor and gears. The children have explored many different ways to make them all move.
Bentley was getting very detailed in the block center .
And of course, the mud kitchen is in full operation outside with the rainfall and the leaves.
