Silly Scarecrows

Halloween is around the corner and that means time to decorate! Our activity was to make a silly scarecrow. We listened really hard to Mrs. Lee as she gave us directions how to cut, glue, and decorate our scarecrows. Wouldn't you think they'd look just perfect in a cornfield to scare crows?

A note from Mrs. Lee:

The Discovery Center field trip was awesome as the children visited three galleries, each filled with hands-on interactive exhibits.  A slideshow, which captures the stimulating and sensory filled activities will be posted next week so you can see your child in action.

This week the students learned all about apples.  They listened  to stories, watched a video about Johnny Appleseed, and painted delightful pictures of him. They began an KWL (What do we know, What do we want to find out, and What did we learn) chart about Apples. After listening to The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree by Gail Gibbons, apple trees in the winter, spring, and summer were created by tearing construction paper. Fall trees need to wait until next week.

After watching Ten Apples up on Top  by Dr. Seuss on YouTube, they glued a number of different colored apples on top of their head. (Photos were taken of them with their hands above their heads, pretending to hold apples). The next task was to count how many apples and write the number next to them.  Next week will be a continuation of learning all about APPLES.

Please remember:
  • Monday, October 1- Friday, October 5 - HMS Book Fair in the Library.
  • Tuesday, October 2nd - Please have your child bring in one of his/her favorite type of apple on or before Tuesday.
Have a nice weekend,
Mrs. Lee
