A Peek Inside the Pre-K Classroom

Extended Day Enchrichment

The first session of Extended Day Enchrichment with Mrs. Carrie is underway.  The first week the little scientists learned about why leaves change color in the fall.  The big word of the day was "chlorophyll" and the children did a great job remembering it!  They also talked about how different trees make different shaped leaves.  While on their leaf collecting walk the children observed the different colors and different shapes of the leaves.  They also examined the differences between the leaves on the ground and the leaves still in the trees.  They sorted their leaves and had fun using them for painting and looking at them more closely with magnifying glasses.

The second week the children studies apples.  Some of the things they learned about include the parts of the apple and how an apple grows from a seed to an apple tree. They even got to make some yummy apple treats!
