- What a beautiful week! Grandparents Day was so much fun. Please thank all the grandparents who attended for taking time out of their busy schedules to come spend time with their grandchildren. It meant so much to them! This week’s theme was called “My Relatives!” We talked about grandmas and grandpas, aunts, uncles, cousins, and all the people in our family!
- Art - This week we got to practice using the art easel. I have some sequence cards that we took a look at to see what we needed to do in order to paint at the art easel. We used watercolor paint and made some really cool creations together. The kids love using the easel, it’s always very special to them!
- STEAM - The activity we did for STEAM this week was definitely something special. We made vegetable soup! We read a story about children helping their grandparents. One of the children helped her grandpa pick vegetables from the garden. We discussed what vegetables were and which ones go in vegetable soup. I provided them with pea pods which they opened up and collected the peas, and they even got to try some as well! I also gave each child some corn to shuck! We went outside on a beautiful day and shucked corn together! The kids LOVED doing this. It was a very different experience and I'm glad they enjoyed it so much! By the end of the week, we finally got to eat some vegetable soup!
Thank you for such an amazing Septemberfest! It was such a success! Thank you for your commitment to St. Michael. Your participation is much appreciated!
