Another Brown Room Birthday Celebration!
When Wilder was 0 years old he liked to ... blow raspberries!
When Wilder was 1 year old he liked to ... eat avocado!
When Wilder was 2 years old he like to ... run with balloons!
Wilder is 3 years old and he likes to ... Ride His Bike!
After a round of delicious chocolate cupcakes for our special snack, we celebrated another friend turning 3 years old. Wilder's color choice to represent his birthday celebration and message from his friends? PURPLE!
Similar to Jade's birthday gift, children created their birthday message to Wilder using clay which Brown Room children show continued interest in working with and exploring further.
After we finish our classroom celebration, the birthday child is able to open his/her individual birthday box on our classroom calendar.
Inside each box is a small representation of the message/gift created by their peers.
This was our last Brown Room birthday in 2020!
Harvesting from the persimmon tree.
Did you know that there is a persimmon tree in the outdoor classroom? Children have taken notice of the trees beautiful changing leaves as well as the bright orange fruit that grows on the tree. Today, children inquired again if the fruit was "ready yet". We have had previous discussions about having to wait to pick the persimmon until it finishes growing and is ripe. Today's questioning led to further research and a discovery that yes, the fruit is probably ready now! We picked two of the ripest looking persimmons from the tree and will allow them to mature at room temperature over the weekend. Hopefully they will be ready to taste next week!
Next week - Thanksgiving!
Today after arriving at school, children were excited to share both their "thank you" and "place" cards for next weeks Thanksgiving feast.
If you haven't yet made your place card / thank you with your child at home,
please have fun creating these over the weekend!
That's all for today!
Since its our last Friday here at school for the month of November, the staff will be taking extra care of our environment for the rest of the afternoon.
If we won't be seeing you next week, we want to extend some early Thanksgiving gratitude to all of you!
We are so thankful for our wonderful and supportive Brown Room families.
Have a fantastic weekend!
