We are off to a great start!  The children are doing great learning our classroom schedule and procedures.  They are working and playing nicely together.  Last week's theme was colors.  We listened to many stories, made a color booklet, mixed paint, sorted colors, and made some colorful craft creations.  Our theme this week is apples.  We will use magnifying glasses to observe seeds, balances to compare different apple weight, and taste different kinds of apples.  We will also make crafts and use paint to make apple prints and trees.
