On to October in Mixed Age!
Hello Mixed Age Families,
Well we are a week into October and we are all settling in to the routine of the day. The block area has been a busy place each day and there has been some good team work as they are playing.
Community Helper Month: Wednesday we had three people come into the classroom form Attleboro Dental to talk to the kids about teeth brushing and how to take care of your teeth. They read Sugarbug Doug to the class and everyone got to practice brushing the BIG teeth with a BIG toothbrush. They loved it!
Here is what we had at the centers in our classroom.
Math Table~ Fall sorting with acorns, leaves and pumpkin gems. There were little cups along with scooper tongs for them to use
Discovery Table~ Light Table with small plastic cups
Art/Writing~ Spookly Pumpkins that are now hanging up in the hallway. 5 pumpkins sitting on a gate activity as well as October themed stampers and stickers. Today some of them made leaf sun catchers, when they were all put together they used to light table to see what is looks when it hanging in a window.
Sensory Table~ Has colored rice along with pumpkin containers, spiders, cauldrons and sparkly pumpkins
