This week we read Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert. and discussed how the wind helps leaf man to be transformed into different types of shapes (fish, birds, and so on). We then discussed how in the season of Fall the wind does blow more often and the leaves change color and fall off of the trees.
In the Art Center the children continued to create props for our new hair salon in the Dramatic Play Center. We also used recycled and collage materials to create Thanksgiving art and decorations!
In the Science center we used our natural collections to create our own “leaf man” art. We used an iPad to takes pictures of our creations.
In Dramatic Play the children acted out family life using props and materials, including food, babies and work items. We also began using our homemade props for the hair salon!
Next week we will be starting our new theme on ‘Where We Live.’ We will be focusing on the places we live and where our family members live, near and far. We will also explore different types of homes and shelters for people and animals.
