September happenings

What we are learning in our new classroom

We researched the items we find outside on the playground or on our walks in the field.

We practiced folding the laundry for Ms. Angela.

We continued to strengthen our fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination as we poured and scooped the bird seed.

And we made our own work from the "squishy things" we found on the playground.
