November & December 2023
October swiftly passed, much like the rustling leaves in the autumn breeze. Just like the beautiful colors of Fall, we had various colorful learning activities in our class. We delved into primary and secondary colors, fostering critical thinking and expression through symbols, signs, and switches, enabling students to make predictions. Their creativity shone through as they blended various shades to unveil captivating combinations. In October, our theme was centered around gratitude, and our core words were "please" and "thank you." We seized the opportunity to take our learning outdoors, capitalizing on the favorable weather to explore our connection to the land. Carving pumpkins allowed us to engage our senses, as we observed, touched, felt, and savored the seasonal harvest. As we transition into November, our theme shifts towards service, and we embark on a journey to understand the vital role of community helpers.

We'll explore primary and secondary colors. The students will channel their creativity by mixing different colors and shades to reveal exciting combinations.
