Happy October, it’s officially Spooky Season! Today was a great day in the Blue Room! To kick off the month of October we began learning all about pumpkins, and the letter Dd. As we continue to explore the concept of community, today we dove into learning about our little citizens’ names! We began a class project illustrating how many letters are in each name, inspired by the book Chrysanthemum. We learned that Chrysanthemum flowers symbolize friendship, happiness, and well-being. Chrysanthemum flowers are also associated with the arrival of Autumn 🙂

How many letters in your name?
Today, during classroom exploration we played a game using dice and colored bears. Friends took turns rolling the die, counting the dots, and then collecting the corresponding number of bears. This game was popular among many friends today. We are so proud of the hard work children are putting into practicing their counting! This game encourages turn-taking, one-to-one correspondence, counting and, social play.
During morning meeting, friends were invited to document the number of letters in their names on a graph. We then compared our findings to determine whose name is the longest and whose name is the shortest. We found that the shortest names were Evan, the Jacks, Zoey, and Elan with 4 letters. The longest name with 7 letters is Narayan. This inspired us to begin our name collage during classroom exploration. We will be revisiting this project throughout the week.
