We had a delicious afternoon…making chocolate chip cookies…and eating them!

We had fun taking turns measuring and mixing the ingredients to make some delicious chocolate chip cookies! Next the children scooped them out onto baking sheets.  After eating the scrumptious cookies, they read “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff.  They made mouse puppets too! It was a great afternoon!

This week we read a sequencing book, “It’s Pumpkin Time!” by Zoe Hall.  We then discussed how pumpkins are grown from seed to pumpkin.  We next did several rhyming activities and played together. It was a great afternoon!

We were busy this week getting our classroom ready for Halloween!

We spent the week decorating and preparing our classroom for Halloween.  We created spooky mummies and ghosts which focused on fine motor skills as we tore and stretched white tissue paper and cotton balls.  We also practiced with scissors as we cut spiders and 5 little pumpkins, which focused on cutting out circle shapes.  We sang a new Halloween song about silly pumpkin faces.
