Fall in Preschool not only brings changes to the weather and our trees outside but there are changes that happen in our classrooms! We have learned our classroom routines and rules and have found consistency in our schedule. We have built new friendships and continued old friendships from last year. We are also exploring our new theme of Leaves and our school wide thematic unit, Space.
Our classroom changes each time we have a new theme. Our sensory table is filled with fall colored rice and natural objects. Our dramatic play area is a woodland forest with a picnic basket and fishing pond. Our thematic play area is a Lunar Landing Zone. It is a place where we can challenge our large motor skills by crawling through a tunnel, jumping on a trampoline, and walking on stilted feet. In each of the other areas of our classroom such as literacy, math, science, blocks, fine motor, music, art, puzzles and the calm down area we have elements of space and leaves as well.
We are having so much fun exploring, creating, playing, and learning! Here are some photos of our experiences:
