The past few weeks have been simply Falltastic at HAFTR Early Childhood! We had so much fun on our leaf hunt and saw how the leaves change from green to lively shades of red, orange, yellow, and brown. We also felt the bumpy brown trunk of the tree and saw the roots poking out of the ground, which we know the tree uses to drink the rainwater like a straw. Lastly, we opened our mouths and stretched our hands up like a tree to see if we could fill our bellies with sunshine like the trees!
When we came back to the classroom, we flexed our math muscles and sorted the leaves into three buckets – small, medium, and large. Making our own fall leaves with finger paints was so much fun. The children were amazed at how, by mixing just three colors, they were able to create so many new and varied shades of color.
