Happy Friday! The Nursery 2 class would like to thank all the families who purchased books for our classroom at the Book Fair. We LOVE to read books and will surely put them to great use!
This week was about exploration. We used four of our five senses to touch, smell, see and hear. Our sensory bin is filled with Fall/Thanksgiving items for us to explore. We used our nose to smell cinnamon sticks, our hands to feel the feathers, leaves (soft), corn (hard), and acorns. We used our ears to hear the different sounds made when you scoop or pour the corn, feathers or rice. We used our eyes to see it all!!
|Is that a feather?|
|These acorns feel funny!|
|Look! There are pumpkins in here too!|
Our work time continues to get longer each week. Some days, we can work for an hour and fifteen minutes!!! As a whole, we really enjoy giving our turkey (a strainer) feathers. This lesson strengthens our pincer grasp which is needed for us to begin to write. This can also easily be replicated at home.
We are happy to report that our pumpkin plants are growing!! Each morning we check in on them to see if they need to be watered or if any new roots have grown. The kids love to sniff the plants to see if they can smell pumpkin. :-)
