On Monday and Tuesday, our older friends geared up for the rain puddles awaiting!
We enjoyed the leaves falling as the wind and rain shook them off.

“They’re flying!”- Savannah
Reed and Alex explored together all morning!
We Observed the sound of the rain going down the drain as well as the bikes running over the leaves.

Our younger friends were even more bold and adventurous on the playground! It was surprising to watch them encourage one another to get messy and have fun on our wet playground. It was very special to watch their smile and bonding moments!
Jacob had the most fun with both the sand and the water puddles! He is very sensory tolerant and was one of the first friend to notice that the sand was wet and is moldable again.
“It’s a cupcake for my teachers and my mommy!”-Jacob
During small groups that morning, we made some lovely tea to keep us warm while playing. Every so often, small groups came up for a break to enjoy the warm Sorrel tea! Nora must of had at least three cups, she truly loves tea!
all week we worked on the very messy activity of paper making. Our friends truly loved the process and are eager for their individual paper pieces as they worked so hard on making them!
As we cut and prepared the paper, we talked about recycling and how it is good to find creative ways to reuse things we no longer need.
Beautiful Moments that speaks for themselves!
Don’t forget to read our classroom board to see what we’re working on for the week as well as what the children are talking about! Here are a few awesome quotes from the board this week!
The board and the quotes from the children are sometimes the highlights of the teachers’ day. We love to read the quotes and laugh and ask one another for the context behind these quotes.

We will be focusing on our friends interests in animals. We hope to transform our classroom into a jungle and incorporate a lot of dramatic play. We also hope to broaden our understandings of unfamiliar animals, their habitats and how they communicate and live! Please feel free to donate, share and lend any items relating to this topic with our class. If you have a book from home about an Okapi, Please join us and read!
Reminders will be in our email next week as well as the access and password for the blog if you don’t already have it. We would love for you to access all these pictures every Friday and be able to share them with your children over the weekend!
Have a lovely weekend!
