Memory Box: Red squirrel from Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf
Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert. A child describes the growth of a maple tree from seed to sapling.
Sneeze, Big Bear, Sneeze! by Maureen Wright. Big Bear thinks that his tremendous sneezes are causing the leaves and apples to fall off the trees and the geese to fly away, but when the wind finally convinces him otherwise, he knows it's time to go to sleep.
Flannel: Five Autumn Leaves (stand up and move rhyme)
Five autumn leaves hanging from a tree (five fingers)
I wonder if they'll fall for me (shrug)
The wind comes blowing wooooosh round and round (big arm movements)
And one little leaf comes fluttering down (flutter fingers down to ground)
Cube Activity: Humpty Dumpty
Letter of the Day: Ll
Lesley randomly opened the book A is for Autumn to L (which was perfect since we talked about leaves)
Music: "Bop Until You Drop"
We bopped, wiggled, moved in slow motion, floated, and spun in this song until it was time to "drop" for the lsat time when the song ended.
Activity: Blowing leaves in the autumn wind
