Picking Apples & Pumpkins and Hermanson's Pumpkin Patch

 Fall is upon us and we have enjoyed our time learning about the pumpkin growth cycle, apple parts and a fabulous, wet trip to the pumpkin patch.  If a picture is worth a 1,000 words this week was busy.  SO MANY PICTURES!!

Fire Safety

 This week we talked all about fire safety! On Monday we made a firetruck of our very own. We talked about the different shapes that are on a fire truck. These are now decorating our hallway! 

On Tuesday we colored a Dalmatian Dog. We drew circles and colored them in solidly.

Wednesday the Fire Fighters came and talked about fire safety.  Be sure to see the website for photos of this fun event!! Are your smoke detectors working—check monthly!

· What is an emergency? When to dial 9-1-1

· Get out and STAY OUT!

· Have fire extinguishers available

· Crawl on the ground, smoke rises

· Have a meeting place outside where you can meet safely. Practice your plan.

· Close before you doze

· NEVER play with fire, matches, or lighters

· NEVER EVER, hide from fire fighters! YELL, I am HERE.

And on Thursday we  did our color page for our color book. We made a fire hat that we can wear too!

Making Friends

 Great week of learning how to be a good friend.  Using our words, sharing, taking turns and using "please" and "thank you".  We are working so hard to learn the routines independently and cleaning up after we are done with something.  These are great life skills that our friends will use forever.  

Working on our coloring skills. Tripod grip, moving crayon back and forth to stay in the lines.  Also,  learning how to be a good listener and a good friend.  GIVE ME 5! Listening ears, looking eyes, quiet voice or even off, hands calm and feet calm. Gotta love the Potato Heads!!



Sharing friendship bracelets with our friends!!! Beading is a great way to build fine motor hand strength!


FOX woodland friends.  They are so adorable.
