Our first month of school went very quickly with meeting new friends, learning how to play with each other and getting back into the swing of things! With school officially starting the kindergarteners received their math and phonics books, four year olds received their homework folders, the three year olds are learning their sounds and our toddlers, well they are moving about and having fun in the practical life area! Full steam ahead!!
We celebrated Autumn with art projects, stories and songs. Johnny Appleseed was celebrated by making our own apple tree using our hands, reading stories and watching a short video on the smart board. Mrs. Lami (the Sparta Librarian) came in and read stories about the beginning of Autumn and starting school.
Mr. Chris started his music lessons and introduced us all to Bob Marley and Reggae Music. We enjoyed the song "One Love".
