Last week in Primary we celebrated the first official day of fall! We noticed that many of us brought a sweater or light jacket to school and that the temperature is getting colder.
Over the next stretch of time we will be observing that changes that we see around us. The leaves will begin to change color, many birds will start to fly south, and we will see squirrels and other animals gathering food for the winter.
In the meantime, we are reading books about fall and the seasons. We are exploring all kinds of leaf activities—sorting, matching, punching, and making crayon rubbings. We’re assembling puzzles about the seasons.
We can’t wait until the leaves begin to fall, as leaf piles offer all kinds of fun in our outdoor classroom!
