Happening this Month
Summer is over and we are now into fall. The children are learning about leaves, trees, and food that we harvest during this time of the year. The children have their portraits outside our room; you can stop by to see them as well as their dots based on the story The Dot. The children have been exploring with clay through out the month of September, we will continue exploring this wonderful and natural material. The children are watching the growth of the sweet potato we placed in water about two weeks ago; they made predictions and pictures of what they thought will grow out of the sweet potato. They have noticed how roots are starting to come out of the potato and floating in the water. We have been observing the children's interest with ramps and tracks; where they have been learning about force, movement, and trial and error. We will be starting our tree study in the next couple of weeks. This month you will have the opportunity to come into the classroom and see the children’s progress, as we are only a few weeks away from parent teacher conferences.

Thought for the month
As the weather changes, it is getting really nice to enjoy the outdoors. Make sure you take walks with your children and talk about the weather and how it changes; and even though we might have to wait a little longer to see the leaves falling, talk about it and ask open-ended questions like: “I wonder why?”, “What do you think?”, “What is different?”. Make sure that children get some time to enjoy nature; maybe through a bike ride, hiking, fishing, camping, etc. Whatever you do make sure you make it a learning moment for your child. Children learn best from experiences and when you take the time to be with them through that learning. Enjoy the beautiful weather and enjoy your child grow and make experiences with you!
