Farewell to the Castle

On Friday, we celebrated the end of our castle unit and Halloween. First, some people brought treats to pass out to their friends and we trick-or-treated in our room. Then we went trick-or-treating in the school. We got fun treats from the people who work in our school. After that, we attended the Pumpkin Ball. First, we sat to listen to the story of "The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything" that Miss Erin read and Miss Stephanie put the pieces on the flannel board. After that, we were able to make crowns, eat snacks and dance! We had a lot of fun participating in all of the activities and we loved having our families there to join us!

This week, we went on a treasure hunt. During work time, someone came in our room and mysteriously left a clue. We followed that clue and it led us to 8 other clues all around the school. We had to "read" the clues to figure out where to find the next one. For example, one had a picture of "girl, toilet paper, toilet, and paper towels" and we figured out we had to go to the girl's bathroom! The last clue showed us a picture of "Circle Time" and when we got back there, we found a fairy had left us treasure on our spots!

Enjoy pictures from our other fun this week. We played with "Mr. Pumpkin Head", put our hands in pumpkin goop, and made sand castles in the Creation Station!
