    • November 9, 2010 Breakfast- Waffles or cereal (they picked) and apples   Bus stop- Beautiful!   Free play   Circle Time- Read/sang "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves", looked at the different leaves we've collected and put them in order of size.  We looked at the different textures of the edges and the various colors.  We read another Chester Raccoon book about Chester moving b/c his tree was being cut down.  Read "Apple Trouble".  Talked about how apples are fall fruit and looked at our apple bite cards and put them in order (whole, one bite, two bite, core).  Sang "Apple Picking", "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star".   Free Play   Snack- Whole grain crackers and pears   Went for a walk on the trail and crunched leaves at the resting spot at the end :)   Played outside at home for about 10 min.   Art- We made another kissing hand :)   Jungle Junction   Lunch- Black bean burgers, quesadillas and corn   Outside- About 25 minutes.   Read "Tinker Bell"/Naptime
