Sorry for the unannounced blogging hiatus I decided to go on this week! I had such a busy week this week that finding the time to blog just didn't happen, and Saturday, as much as I tried to be productive, really just turned into a day to catch up on sleep and rest! Oh how those days are needed!
But I'm back and ready to share some of the activities we did this week! I thought I had more pictures of some of the various activities I found online from other blogs and how I used them, but turns out I only had a few!
Here we are enjoying our pumpkin patch! You see where I have the pumpkin patch dramatic play set up!
I printed off the calendar numbers that Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching shared. I already have pumpkin calendar pieces for my calendar so I put these in our toy area to create a counting activity for the kiddos. I laminated sentence strips and added velcro. Voila, done! You could easily come up with a recording sheet and use this idea as a math center for your kinder kiddos too!
We also practiced writing the letter P in the writing area using a practice handwriting sheet shared from Musings of Me! Check her out for tons of great activities and...FREEBIES!
I don't know if you can tell, but in that red bucket are expo markers and laminated orange pumpkin cut outs. Using expo markers students could make their own jack-o-latern faces. They love these! We're doing pumpkins again next week, with some fire trucks/ fire prevention added in so hopefully I'll get more photos of our other pumpkin activities this week!
(Yes I know, it's not fire prevention week, but the fire truck is coming to visit on Friday at our school, so I planned it for this week!)
I have a three baking recipes coming up so be on the look out! (Part of the reason I didn't have time to blog this week!)
