And the group grows...

We are so excited to announce that we had a new student join the class this week! We are so happy to to see the class grow.

To start off our very chilly day, we decided to figure out just how cold it was. We put our thermometer outside while we got ready for the morning and were shocked to learn that it was 29 degrees outside!
We made a stop by our class tree "Swampy Jeanne" to make her a blanket of leaves to protect her during her first winter. Mrs. Alison told us a story called "Stone Soup" and we decided that we were going to make our own version of stone soup! We gathered all sorts of ingredients from nature and made a delicious soup before returning to the warmth of the barn for some homemade bread. 

Inside we reviewed the "Tree Factory" activity from last week and enjoyed pretending to be tall oak trees! We read a story about a little acorn that grew into a tall tree called "In a Nut Shell" by Joseph Anthony and then made our very own felted acorns to take home.
 Towards the end of class we started making our Tree Field Guide to add notes, sketches, and leaves to as we identify them this week. Here they are hard at work! 
Check out our Fall themed nature table! It is full of cool items we have collected over the past couple weeks.
"From little acorns mighty oak trees grow."
