We have been learning about leaves. This week at center time we made beautiful leaf decorations. They are taped to our classroom window to help us celebrate Fall. We made leaf prints, played a leaf graphing game, sorted leaf words, and made leaf rubbings. We are making a special leaf identification book.

King Tut's Treasures

We had a great time seeing King Tut's treasures at The Children's Museum. Before our trip we read many books about King Tut's tomb. We saw many pictures of his treasures and we studied about the men who discovered his tomb. We had a special center day where we participated in many activities pertaining to King Tut. The children were excited that they recognized many of the treasures that we had studied.

We are so excited about going to the Children's Museum to see King Tut's treasures! This week our center time activities focused on King Tut! We cut and pasted our names in hieroglyphics, played hieroglyphic memory, decoded our hieroglyphic sight words, put together Egyptian puzzles, and made pyramids. We have read many interesting books about King Tut.
