Celebrating Fall!

Carrot HarvestBy Renee Hennessy, Preschool Director

Throughout the Preschool, children are learning about the wonders of our beautiful world. They are noticing the changes in the weather and the addition of more leaves under the oak tree. The Pandas and Adventurers classes have been learning about the colors of fall in various ways: gluing fall leaves on paper, painting with fall colors, creating nature collages, experimenting with fall-themed sensory bins, and tasting carrots harvested from our garden. (I can’t believe how many carrots we were able to harvest!) The Trailblazers class taste-tested red, yellow, and green apples and made apple crisp – which was delicious, too. When children participate in activities that engage their senses, the depth of their learning and experience is enhanced.

On Friday we enjoyed our first Big Sing of the season! Faith Murphy introduced us to a few of the Preschoolers’ music class favorites.
