Writing/abc/phonics/literacy: The books in literacy center focus on our weekly theme of fall/planting. In writing center there is chalk and chalk boards, markers, pencils, paper, dry erase boards. In ABC center there are spelling (with pictures) puzzles, and other abc puzzles, as well as ABC magnets and metal pans.
Jesus Time: This week we will learn about the fruits of the spirit. When we present healty fruit to others (the fruits of the spirit) they learn about the love of Christ through us. We will observe the differences between literal fresh fruit and rotting fruit. We will make a correlation between rotting fruits and actions that are opposite of the fruits of the spirits mentioned in Galations. Rotting fruit can be compared to anger, frustration, lying, etc. Fresh fruits can be compared to kindness, gentleness, love, etc. The kids will be able to visualize that fresh fruit is healthier, and yummier. When we keep our "fruits" healthy we are ready to show the love of God to others and help point them to the love of Christ.
Science: We will continue monitoring our plants from last week, discussing what they need to grow. Emptying out pumpkins, and examining their insides. We will be using the hollowed out pumpkins to make pumpkin volcanoes on Friday. We will observe the decompostion of a pumpkin left open in the room for 1 week.
Math: In math center we have calculators, shape matching activities, counting number puzzles, magnetic shapes and letters, and number tracing sheets with dry erase markers. This week will will practice counting fruits and identifying numbers with fruit themed counting clip cards.
Fine Motor: Playdoh with tools, counting clothespin cards
