Happy Fall, Y'all!

This week we celebrated fall.  We began to learn all about how the season change and all the fun happenings of fall.

The students learned about how the trees and leaves change in the fall.  They learned that the trees begin to prepare for winter and they begin to lose their leaves in the fall.  The leaves turn colors and fall from the trees.  The students painted fall leaves to decorate our classroom.   

Painting fall trees with our handprint and fingerprints.  

We read this wonderful book, "The Little Scarecrow Boy".

We all made our own scarecrows.  

Candy corn men! 

We read some wonderful books about fall.  The students are becoming very good at determining which books are fiction and non-fiction books. 

This week we learned the letter Nn. 

Nn is for noodle.  We worked as a team and dyed noodles for Noodle Necklaces! 

Stringing the Noodle Necklaces 

Nn is for Noodle Necklace! 

We continued to practice learning, comparing, writing, counting sets with numbers 0-10. 

Practicing on the iPads, a class favorite. 

The students are hard workers during reading centers, they are becoming excellent readers.  They practice blending and reading sight words. 

Happy Birthday, Tillon!
