September Refresher

In the month of September we explored a lot! We started off saying goodbye to summer, now that fall is here!! Then we got to learn some cool stuff about our families and we ended the month talking about birthdays and enjoying some cake as well as taste testing different apples for our apple unit

What's happening in October?

During October we get to learn about some really cool things! Like fall leaves and pumpkins and we will even get to carve and explore our very own pumpkin!! From there we move on to spiders and ghosts as Halloween soon approaches. And to end our month we talk about Halloween and all the fun stuff that comes along with this holiday!!:)
