With the start of fall, we incorporate many themes and activities that bring fall into the classroom. A class favorite is our apple theme. Recently, the children got to sample different kinds of apples, participate in graphing activities to see which apple was the classroom favorite, and our children prepared a variety of cooking and baking recipes with apples. Our school was filled with the delicious smell of homemade apple crisp prepared by our children and served at snack.
Family involvement events are a great way for families to experience some of the fun their children have at Kids Network. They also serve as great opportunities for our staff and family members to get to know one another. As we are now solidly into this school year, look for these events at your Kids Network site. We hope to see you there!
