Hello! It’s been such a long time since the last blog post, but better late than never!
October was full of fun! Cooking was all about French food. We made Quiche Lorraine, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Ratatouille and Boeuf Bourguignon and much more. In art classes, we completed paper mache giraffes, and we focused on the fall, painting fall trees, creating ceramic pumpkins and much more.
In MDO, we focused on the farm, building our own farm and talking about different crops and how they grow. We planted some of our own “crops” (beans and peas) and did a lot with sorting. We finished up the month to Sweet Berry Farms, where we fed goats, went on a hay ride, found our way through the sorghum maze, raced for and painted pumpkins and then made our scarecrow, Aruro. It was a blast!
November has been wonderful so far! In cooking, we’re making American food, like Chili, Chicken Pot Pie and more! In Art, we’re working projects dealing with appreciation and gratitude. We’ll be starting our Trees of Gratitude this week.
This month in MDO, we are focusing on different animals on the farm. We’ll be welcoming author/illustrator Ros Hill on the 11/11. He will talk about his books, Shamoo: A Whale of a Cow and Unexpected Tales as well as drawing techniques and his job as an author/illustrator. Then, we’ll head to Novella’s Farm and Schoolhouse to milk cows, feed chickens and learn about bee habitats. It’s sure to be a blast!
We’ve also starting composting. The MDO kids are learning a great deal about this project, but we will be composting in all of our classes, since it is so wonderful for our Earth!
We are gearing up for an exciting Holiday Season! Check out all of our Gingerbread Events! We have family events on Saturday Mornings (December 3 and 10) and Just Kids Bake and Build Events on Saturday Afternoons. We also have events at Miss Julie’s and Abercorn. Sign up by November 25!
