This week the Busy Bees have been learning all about fall. We discussed how the weather has been changing and about some other signs we may find to tell us that fall is here. We enjoyed reading Lois Ehlert’s Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf and Steve Metzger’s The Biggest Leaf Pile. The children painted beautiful pictures with some colors we may see outside in the fall. They also had a great time pretending to be scarecrows while we learned a new scarecrow song!
An important skill we will be working on this year is cutting with scissors. This takes most young children quite some time to master, but with plenty of practice they will improve greatly. I encourage you to allow your child to have plenty of supervised time with scissors at home. Perhaps they could help clip coupons, cut pictures out of sale ads, or snip a collage of their own. Using plastic play scissors on play dough can also help to get the motion down pat!
During our Bible story this week we heard the story Noah’s Big Boat. Mr. Jack joined us to sing a song that puts the story of Noah to music, complete with lots of movements. Next week we will be learning about fire safety. See you then!
