Apple Blossom Garden - A note from Mrs. Ieva

When I’m grown up, grown strong as an oak,

I’ll tame the wild dragon with one mighty stroke.

When I’m grown up, grown big as the world.

I’ll ride forth a hero with my banner unfurled.

Dear Families,

I would like to warmly welcome a new "mighty oak" Vaughn in our class. As well as his mom and dad Morgan and Mark Branson into our community!

What a weather change we had today! Pure autumn with some rain drops and whirling wind. Please make sure your children have proper outdoor gear.

For the last week and a half we have been starting our day with a little walk through the prairie (you can see some photos in our schools news letter). It is quite magical, especially when sun is shining.

Today we painted with wet-on-wet watercolor exploring the colors yellow and red and we're going through the process of how we will paint and care for our materials. I hope to give you a chance to watercolor paint at our next class meeting. (The date is not set yet, but will soon be :))

We have had some changes in our snack schedule, adding some lentils and sauerkraut. Please enjoy the attachment with the most recent snack and activity update.

For the next couple weeks I will  continue to work with “Mighty Oaks” on tying bows and encourage this work at home, as well as finger knitting.

Please enjoy some of autumn activity ideas:

  1. Collect Leaves! We are at the beginning of the height of colors for the autumn season, so please get outside, take a hike, and enjoy time in nature and the changing of the trees. If you find small/medium size leaves about the size of your palm, please collect, press in a book (put heavy books on top), and use later to decorate your table.
  2. Carve a pumpkin and/or bake one to make into pumpkin pie, muffins, or whatever you desire. Be sure to bake the seeds.
  3. Relax and enjoy each other’s company ~ play a game, read a book together, rake leaves and jump in them, sit around a fire.

Warmly,
Mrs. IevaAbgactivities
