The past week, the Transitional Kindergarten (TK) class at St. John Fisher School participated in many activities to learn more about Halloween.
The children enjoyed playing with the bat puppets and Halloween masks that they made. Afterwards, they explored the various mystery boxes set up in the classroom. The mystery boxes were labeled as the following: eyeballs, warts, toes, bones, spider legs, ears, teeth, fingers, and heart. They had a wonderful time touching the different textures and tried to guess what really was inside each box.

They also watched Spookley the Square Pumpkin. This movie promotes diversity and teaches children about accepting differences.
Later in the week, they had a lesson on Dia de Los Muertos and made sugar skulls. All of their beautiful artwork is hanging inside the classroom.
The past couple of months, the TK class has developed so many skills and the children are enthusiastic to learn more each day!
