Monday is here! The leaves are changing colors, so what better way than to have this weeks theme all about leaves and acorns! Starting off the morning, we read The Leaves on the Trees. Next were our three group time activities. First, we  had to match our letters made out of acorns. Next, our second group got to make some noise, the kids had to place leaves in one container and listen to see what sound it makes, and then place acorns in the other. Finally, in our last group we had to match our shapes with with our squirrel picture holding the shape. We had a "fall"tastic Monday!!

To end our week, we read The Lost Dinosaur Bone during our circle time. We didn't do activities today, but we did get to examine the eggs we used on Monday! First, we got a fresh egg and talked about what happens when they crack. Then, we took our "dino" eggs out of the vinegar and got to see how the shells are soft now. We tried to bounce them gently to see what happened, and then we got to break them open! It was really neat to see how the eggs were different after sitting in vinegar for four days. Since it was too wet and cold to play outside, we got to try out our new Handy Bands and do fun exercises with them! We also got to learn all about our Star of the Week and he shared his favorite book and toys with us! We had an egg-cellent day!

We had more stomping fun today! After reading another book about dinosaurs at circle time, we got to pretend to be dinosaurs! We put on dino feet, stomped on footprints and identified the letters we stomped on. In our second group, we sorted dinosaurs by size then by whether they ate plants or meat. In our third group, we got to squish paint around a bag to paint a picture of a dinosaur. We had a terrific Thursday!

To continue our theme, we read Dinosaur Train at circle time. In our activities, we got to explore the sensory bin! There was sand, eggs, and dinosaurs and we pretended the dinos were hatching! In our second group, we matched shapes on Triceratops. In our last group, we used ink to make a "hand-a-saurus". We put our handprint on paper and decorated it to make our own dinosaur! We had a wonderful Wednesday!
