Christmas Trees

We made Christmas trees using sugar cones, frosting, and candy. The kids loved this activity.

Our Gingerbread House

As a class, we made a gingerbread house. The kids had so much fun putting it together and decorating it. Here are a few pictures of our house in the making.

We had our Thanksgiving Unit the week before Thanksgiving. For one of our crafts we made Turkey centerpieces. They turned out so cute. All of the kids did such a great job on their turkeys.

We learned about the Pilgrims and Indians and made costumes. We then had our Thanksgiving feast with yummy sweet potatoes, turkey, fruit, and pumkin pie.

Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!

During our bug unit, we learned all about different types of bugs and their characteristics. We
even went on a bug hunt to try to find bugs in our own backyard. Each of the kids had their own bug catchers.

The hunt was on! We looked under bushes and trees to find any kind of bug.

Our hunt was looking unsuccessful, so we decided to hide some plastic bugs for them to find.

We were sad that no real bugs were found, but satisfied with the plastic ones. It was a pretty fun day.

Party Time!

Everyone dressed up for our Halloween party. It was so fun to see everyone's adorable costumes.
This was taken on Wednesday. Leah and Bailey were almost matching. We just had to take a picture.

We carved a pumpkin and counted the seeds.

We played a variey of games including a bean bag toss and pin the nose on the pumpkin.

We ended the party with cupcakes. Everyone got to frost and decorate their own Halloween cupcakes.

Mateo and Tristan wore matching Iron Man costumes.

Getting Into the Halloween Spirit

We had fun making bats out of construction paper and pom poms.

We added a face to our pumpkins to make jack-o-lanterns. We laminated them and made them into placemats.

We played a fun game called letter swat. We gave two kids a fly swatter and told them a letter. The first one to swat the correct letter with thier fly swatter was the winner. We played this a few times. They loved it.

Falling Into Fall

One of our favorite crafts this week was the leaf imprints. We made some clay, and then pressed a leaf into it to make an imprint. We then painted our imprint with watercolor paint. We had a great time.
We made some scarecrow file folders with the letters A-M. The kids each took home a baggie of letters to practice matching on the scarecrow at home.

We traced some leaves, and the kids used watercolor paints to make their leaves colorful and unique.

Last week, we learned about transportation. We discussed ways that we get from one place to another. The kids made a collage of vehicles that go on the road. They enjoy learning new things!
Our favorite project this week was making trucks out of graham crackers, cheerios, frosting, and peanut butter cookies. They love to make anything that involves food!

Tristan's Birthday!

Tristan turned 4 this week! We had some cupcakes, and played a few games to celebrate.
