Our field trip to Green Meadows Farm!

Last week Friday, the K3 through 1st grade scholars all went on an awesome field trip to Green Meadows Farm in East Troy!  The 45 minute drive was so worth it!  Scholars got to see and do so many fun things...see and touch LOTS of different farm animals (pig, chickens, goats, cow), play in corn sensory bins, ride a real pony, go on a super fast hay ride behind a tractor, and of course pick their very own pumpkin straight from the patch!  It was an awesome Fall day!

Pumpkin play during Learning Centers!

Last week we had a fun pumpkin theme going on in K3, and it was evident in our Learning Centers how much fun pumpkins can be!  Scholars used pumpkins, pumpkin seeds, and pumpkin erasers to have tons of fun while learning!

Eileen used pumpkin erasers to make different kinds of lines!

Olive had tons of fun playing with real pumpkins and gourds in our sensory table!

Lianora and Jabari used pumpkin seeds to make our letter of the week...Tt!

K3 Halloween Buddy Visit!

Yesterday, our 8th grade buddies visited us for a special Halloween activity!  We got to work together to make awesome jack-o-lanterns!  Each one is special and unique, just like the K3 and 8th grade kiddos, and it was so fun watching them be creative together!

Exploring our 5 Senses!

This week K3 dove into exploring our 5 senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching!  We read some fun books like Big Smelly Bear and Yummy Yucky, and had plenty of fun learning center activities all about our 5 senses!

Scholars explored how sand feels in the sensory table!

It was fun searching with our eyes for objects hidden in the pom poms!

Clip cards are a fun way for scholars to show us what they know!  This scholar is identifying which sense is used for a particular picture!

This scholar is sorting pictures by sense!


Fall is for Apples!

The first signs of Fall are showing in our K3 classroom, and of course it's been all about APPLES!  This yummy Fall fruit was the center of our learning this week!  While our science learning focused on the life cycle of an apple, we also used apples in other ways!  

The scholars LOVED our Dramatic Play - Apple Orchard!

Scholars worked in the apple orchard store!

Baking apple pies and picking apples was so fun too!

Scholars practiced sorting apples by color!

Our apple pie Sensory Table was a big hit!
