We have been busy learning about our community helpers in our neighborhood, focusing on firefighters. We learned several fun songs and projects around this theme, and we even put out our own pretend “fires” in the classroom with a spray bottle (baking soda and vinegar were the ingredients). The Metuchen fire department visited the school for a fun filled visit, teaching us valuable skills- stop drop and roll! We have continued to learn about fall and we have been collecting leaves, exploring fall colors, and singing about fall. We love to watch the seasons changing on the playground and explore this, and we also took a nature walk around the school!
