Here's to the days of good will, cooler weather, and warm hearts.
The children have been learning and discovering, hands on, about clouds, rain, lightening, hurricanes and tornadoes. We created static electricity using balloons. These forces of nature have been putting on a show with the recent hurricanes.
We also learned about the season of autumn. Why do leaves change colors? What do different varieties of apples taste like? What are the animals in nature doing in the autumn to prepare for the coming winter?
Our next theme will be People and their Environment. We will learn about being a good citizens, geography, and natural resources. We will discuss our state of Pennsylvania.
We will also begin our Thanksgiving preparations. What are we thankful for? We will make and eat mashed potatoes. We will discuss family traditions. After Thanksgiving we will focus on Celebrations around the World.
Our program also includes art in various forms and a weekly yoga session. The children are learning yoga breathing and different yoga poses.
