A beautiful fall day . We decided to discover the changes in the world around us. We discovered that its cooler outside, the leaves are starting to change colors, leaves are starting to fall to the ground, there are acorns and pine cones everywhere. We also decided to harvest the carrots in our garden and gather some apples and walk to fed the horses.

At circle we worked on the Calendar, weather, the letter b, yoga posses for the letter B. We counted and sang our ABC’s, Signed baby, boy, bed. Ask your child how to sign those. We talked about what makes us special. Today’s answers are so sweet:
