|Cooking with Preeta (Sireeta's mom)|
On Friday, Novermber 7th Sireeta's mom came in to bake cookies. The children enjoyed the whole cooking experience of measuring, pouring, and cracking the eggs. We enjoyed a cookie with our lunch! Pictures are up on the private page.
|Kindergarten Field Trip|
On Tuesday, October 28th the kindergarteners went on their first field trip to The Harvard Museum of Natural History. The first part of our trip was getting to ride on a school bus! We arrived at the museum and we headed into the Mineral Gallery where we were able to look at many different kinds of minerals and rocks. As we traveled from room to room we saw fossils, skeletons, and animals from various continents. It was a beautiful day so we decided to have a picnic lunch outside on the grass. Be sure to ask your kindergartener what their favorite part of the museum was and take a look at the pictures on our private page.
|Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins|
On Wednesday, October 29th we got together with our buddy class (LE2) and had a Scavenger Hunt for pumpkins. Davis Farmland donated over 50 pumpkins to us. With the help of the elders in LE2 we hid the pumpkins throughout the playground. Then both classes came outside and we intorduced ourselves and we all went on a pumpkin hunt. Once each person found their pumpkin they came over to the picnic tables to paint their pumpkin with their buddy. Afterwards, we played in the leaves before heading back to class. Please check out our pictures on the private page and take a look at LE2's private page to see more pictures from this wonderful event.
On Thursday, October 23rd we learned about Diwali. Diwali, also know as the festival of lights is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in the fall. Diwali is one of the happiest holidays in India. Preeta (Sireeta's mom) read us a book called "The Diwali Gift". Shalini (Shaan's mom) brought in materials and showed us how to make paper lanterns and rangoli designs to color. Preshanthi ( Sahaj's mom) brought in snack. There was Ladoo (These are round sweets made from chickpea flour), Soan Papdi (These are very thin and crispy layers of chickpea flour and sugar, Namkeen (These are baked chips) and Jeera Cookies (These are cookies made from cumin seeds and have coconut in them.
