Fall 2008 Scrapbook
Lee's Little Learners began a new season of programs for families of the Godfrey-Lee Public School district. The children and their families had the opportunity to learn all about apples, a major fall crop for Michigan fruit growers. With Apples, Apples and More Apples, families were able to taste red, green and yellow apples. They built vocabulary by examining the parts of an apple. The children built eye and hand coordination by lacing Apple Jacks on licorice. Making predictions about whether apples sink or float and then exploring that concept in the water table was a favorite activity. Both parents and children enjoyed spending time together!
"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall!" Ms. Char helped these two little learners to learn all about Humpty Dumpty. The boys were able to experiment with real eggs which they let drop into a tub. More than literacy was happening at this morning library playgroup! These children also learned about gravity and cause and effect.
This week the children and their parents had the opportunity to explore the many varieties of print in the world around us. They discovered that letters could be found all around us from labels in the classroom to signs along the road.
The playgroup, "Thankful," provided children and their parents a variety of fun experiences such as reading "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie," creating scent-sational art projects, tasting pumpkin pie and exploring pumpkins and gourds.
