The weather sure is changing fast! We went for a nature walk yesterday and noticed that it was cold and we needed to wear a coat. We also saw that the ground is covered with red, orange, yellow, and brown leaves and learned a song about that.
TTTO London Bridge is Falling Down
All the leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down x2
All the leaves are falling down
Red, orange, yellow and brown
We decided to choose some colorful leaves to bring a little bit of fall into our classroom. We chose the prettiest ones! Uriel held the basket while everyone put in the leaves they picked. He carried it so carefully all the way downstairs without spilling any!
We looked at the leaves and saw that they have shades of different colors all mixed together in different ways. Then we painted paper leaves in red, yellow, and orange designs, inspired by nature.
Then we sorted the real leaves and chose some to glue onto paper to create collages. We’ll turn the rest into a mobile to hang near the tree on our wall. We can’t wait for the room to be covered in fall leaves!
We also worked on a special book together this week – a book about the 6 days of creation. In helping children to understand the beautiful world that Hashem gave us, we find things around them that they are familiar with. We took photos of the children doing things they experience all day in their comfortable environment at school. We highlighted common positional words to help them develop spatial awareness and learn the foundations of early math. We hope you and they enjoy reading this special book together for a long time.
