Preschool Newsflash


Apples and Pumpkins!  That what we have been talking about, exploring, experimenting reading about and singing about!  Lots of fun activities!  A couple of our favorites: “10 little apples (or pumpkins) swinging in a tree!  Teasing Mr. Slinky Worm, ‘don’t eat me!’ Along comes Mr. Slinky Worm quiet as can be and…CRUNCH!”
As you can imagine…acting this out with big apples, pumpkins and a worm is the best!  We baked delicious pumpkin banana bread that we shared with Ms. T, Mrs. Chimbolo, and our new “neighbor”, Mrs. Pagano!  Baking makes us super happy!
