Many of the sights in my classroom during October were Halloween inspired. Before the Halloween-themed activities were explored, however, we spoke of Thanksgiving and thought a little about what we were grateful for.
We also discussed what we ate for the meal we shared with our family. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn relevant vocabulary in French.
Even though the classroom had still not been painted, I put up a few Halloween decorations in the room.
Many activities were Halloween inspired.
The activities, however, were driven by our inquiries on Fall and about ourselves, as well as our daily activities.
October ended with the classroom filled with excited children wearing their costumes. We got a little work done – but not too much.
October has been a good month filled with learning. I now look forward to the month of November and the changes Room 1 will experience.
What changes has October brought for you?
