When we finished the children returned to their classes and everyone was invited into studio where we made corn tortillas and enjoyed them with fresh pinto beans and salsa.
Our deep gratitude to the Salcedo-Rojas' family for generously sharing their family/cultural traditions with our school! These experiences deepen our cultural awareness and enrich our program immensely.

The toddlers spent the day exploring pumpkins through the senses. First we dug the slimy seeds out, smelling the wonderful aroma of fresh pumpkin.
And the leaves were hung on the ceiling outside the classroom as a surprise for the children. The display was greeted with wonder and awe.
To continue the exploration at home, here is a song we sang awhile looking at the laminated pumpkin.

The 440 class has had a number of parents already lending their talents to the class!
It really does take a village to raise a child. Whenever we come together, sharing our enthusiasm and inspirations alongside the children, our community is enriched and our learning is shared and deepened.
If you want to hear about other ways to get involved, please ask me or your classroom teachers... we are all eager to share.
