October at BCNS

by on Oct 12, 2013 at 12:27PM




Fall is here!   We're learning about farms, farm animals, and harvest. The children love the new "Farmers Market" in the dramatic play area!   There is lots of  interaction with buying and selling flowers, pumpkins, fruits and vegetables.  Farm animals appeared in our blocks and sensory table.  We are hearing stories, playing games,  and singing songs all about the farm.  The children churned cream to make butter which made for a delicious treat on our rolls for snack! 


** The PM class will begin their "Marvelous Monday" program on Monday the 14th.   The hours will be 9:00 - 2:30.  Please have the children dress warmly as the day begins with a nature walk and don't forget their lunch!  **


Both classes are visiting Suyematsu Farm and Pumpkin Patch on Wednesday, October 16th.  We will have a farm tour and pick a pumpkin!  The AM class will meet at the farm (9am) and the PM class will have a regular drop off at school (12:30PM).


Another favorite fall activity, we will be making applesauce in school on Wednesday October 23rd in both classes.  Please let your child's teacher know if you would like to help out with this fun project.


Although we don't dress up for Halloween at school, BCNS has many fun holiday traditions.  We will have an exciting week learning about bats, spiders, and jack-o-lanterns.....  oh my!


The blustery, drizzly days are back.  Thank you so much for sending your child to school ready to play outside in all types of weather.
