Smart Start Week 4 - Monday
Mornings, at Smart Start, are an opportunity to begin the day with wonder. We offer something different each morning for children to observe, experiment with, or explore. On Monday, it was a sunflower! We talked about seeds and petals and the students asked great questions like, "Can you eat it?"
During Circle Time, we asked the children what was new in our classroom.
"Leaves!" they shouted.
"That's right! This week will be all about leaves!"
We talked about how leaves change color in the fall. We watched a SciShow Kids video showing how those beautiful fall colors are inside the leaves all along and we learned a big, new, science word: chlorophyll!
