We are investigating autumn in room 14 this month! Thank you for everyone who contributed to our autumn nature table. We went on an autumn hunt, ticking off on our clipboards any signs of autumn that we found. We found red, yellow, orange and brown leaves. We also found helicopters, chestnuts and acorns. We read several autumn stories, such as "The Wide Awake Hedgehog" and "Rusty the Squirrel". We learned that hedgehogs hibernate and we created hedgehogs in art. We are using some of our new autumn vocabulary when we are playing games during Aistear. At the writing/creative station we cut/coloured/drew autumn pictures and made leaf rubbings. We even saw two grey squirrels outside of our classroom window!! It was very exciting.
