Wednesday October 5th in the 123’s

Today in the 123’s we continued our discussion about Fall leaves. We asked if they have been looking for fall trees while driving to and from school! We read, “Let it Fall” and discussed the fun fall leaf activities mentioned in the story Such as jumping in leaf piles, catching leaves as they fall on a windy day, apple and pumpkin picking etc. Today we introduced a line tracing activity. They each choose their color marker they wanted to use, we worked on holding the marker correctly and following the leaves from the tree down to the ground! I wrote on their papers whether they did this activity with or without assistance! We leaved a new fingerplay called “This is the way we crunch the leaves” as we sang it we crumbled up dry leaves, used our fingers to take them up and then bagged them up for a project planned for tomorrow! For lunch we had our choice between PB &J, Turkey and cheese, or just cheese, we had veggie chip sticks, carrots, cucumbers, apples, bananas and drinkable yogurts!
