Our children have started to notice changes outdoors now that it's almost Autumn. They have also begun to gel as a class so we wanted to create a communal piece of artwork to reflect this achievement.
We encouraged the children to help co-create a tree in fall by stamping using paper tubes. We painted the trunk and the children added the leaves.

Did you know we have a Betta fish in our room? The children have spent time watching it this past week.
We wanted to learn more about it so we read a nonfiction book.

We read a book today about opposites. To experiment with wet and dry materials we decided to paint with sidewalk chalk in the windy weather and see what happens. The children were fascinated to see how quickly the paint dried.
Today we went on a tour of the school to learn about all of the exciting places in our building! We saw...
...the living wall outside of our classroom.
...the beautiful hallway.
...the washroom near the gym.
...the mechanical room. (Our school has windows so the children can see how our school is maintained.)
...the rooftop garden.
Why don't you ask your child what his/her favourite place in the school is?
