Mrs. Fossler has created a sensory path within her classroom for students within the school to use. This path as created to help students with motor skills, get the wiggles out so they can focus better on their work, and help them become more engaged. These are just a few of the benefits, Mrs. Fossler hopes to see come from the uses of the sensory path.
This quarter the preschool got to experience a lot of fun new things. We ventured the Pinecrest Tree Farm. There they also received pumpkins of their very own. We then took the pumpkins back to school to decorate. The students got to explore each of the trees and see the trees that had been painted different colors. The preschool also participated in the pumpkin decorating contest. One pumpkin was made into a schoolhouse with popsicle stick kids and the other was made into a spooky pumpkin. They helped make a giant turkey to decorate the room. They learned out to follow a recipe for making home-made playdough. They then each got to make their own turkey in disguise.
Second graders have been studying the genre of Poetry in our new Wonders reading program. Many of the poems they read were written about animals and their habitats. Once they finished the unit students chose an animal and made a poster about their habitat along with a silly poem to go with it.
They had so much fun doing this project!
