I just love fall. The weather is cooler and everything just feels cozier. I love pumpkin spice lattes, breads, scones and pumpkin play-doh. This month I will be filling my classroom with red brown orange and green as we talk about the change in the weather. To start off I used The vocabulary cards that came in the FunShine Curriculm. We looked at the picture of the girl and asked why they though she was wearing a coat. We then took out all of the jackets/sweaters we brought. We noticed some had Zippers, some had buttons and some pulled over our heads. We played a game and to see if we could pick the right coat with the right friend.

Circle Time: To introduce our friends today I used the same concept as Buster Buckle but instead of using Buster I used a mini pumpkin. We talked about its color and size.
