SALEM PRESCHOOL NEWS
We are celebrating the coming of fall at Preschool this month! With shorter days we will be watching as the trees “put on their dresses of red and gold, for summer is gone and the days grow cold.” Harvesting our garden produce is on our schedule. We hope to donate much of it to our local food shelf!
Apples, a yummy Minnesota fall fruit, will be the theme of our first week of October. It is almost magical to watch as the bare trees of winter blossom with white and pink flowers. Then, with the help of the honey bees, apple trees produce juicy, red, yellow and green apples. We will eat these apples and cook them! The four year olds will even visit Aamodt’s Apple Orchard where they will pick an apple and visit the big apple barn!
Autumn is a season that brings many changes. As the leaves fall and days get colder we know that winter is just around the corner. We have cozy homes to snuggle into. What do the woods animals do in the winter? Who lives in the woods? These are questions we will answer this month.
Trick-or-Treat! October wouldn’t be complete without celebrating Halloween. At Preschool we will don our costumes and party! We have been growing pumpkins all summer and they are ready to carve into impressive jack-o-lanterns. What a fun way to end the month!
