October is a month about celebrating the season of fall. We talk about apples and see what shape is in the inside when we print them. We make delicious apple pies for snack and make our family trees.
Our first field trip of the year is to Zittel’s Market. We learn about vegetables and have fun in a hay maze. We even get to feed a calf and a goat!
To continue with our fall fun we read the book The Shy Scarecrow and make scarecrow masks, color a mural, and make crows out of triangles.
Farmer and Mrs. Farmer Brown come and visit and we go on a hayride around the parking lot and we love to sing, “Old Farmer Brown…”
We end the month practicing our cutting skills and we pattern our happy and sad face pumpkins!
