Today is the first day of fall/autumn. We read a story called We're Going On a Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger. We also learned the vocabulary for parts of the tree along the way (trunk, branches, leaves, roots, crown). This is part of our Science curriculum. We noticed that not all trees look the same, and the leaves turn different colours in the fall. We did a little role playing, and played a really fun game where some leaves blew out of a tree and we had to try and catch them in our nets!! Lots of excitement!!!
Every Day 5 and 6 we go to the Music Room. Our music teacher's name is Ms. Rempel. Two of the songs we learned today were..."Elephants Have Wrinkles" and "Listen to the Ducks".
We also practiced a fire drill today. Now we know what to do in case of a fire emergency!! We are ready for a real fire drill practice when the fire alarm goes off!
