NOVEMBER at The Little Nook

NOVEMBER at The Little Nook

Hang on to your hats
{and your mittens}

The brisk breeze may be keeping us indoors some mornings here in Atlanta, but rest assured, we're having plenty of hands-on fun while keeping cozy.  This month we have been looking closely at Falling Leaves, Feasts, Friends of the Forest, Food and talking about Family and all things Thankful.

Caroline's Bird Birthday - What a Tweet!

 We flew just right today for Caroline's 4th birthday!

We kicked off, I mean, fluttered off with a little bird house painting…

 because our feathered friends need a place to live, of course, 
and why shouldn't it be as colorful as they are?

 Then, our birthday girl said that she wanted to feed her birds.
so we added a little bird seed.

We bundled it up and said

Do you have any bird friends?

We do!

and we met them all…

By then we had worked up an appetite, 
and we don't mean sunflower seeds.

Birds of a Feather, Flock together!

Bird Bath…


Thanks for Flying with Me!

All of our Bird Party Printables can be found on our Etsy store here!

Out of this World {Solar System}

Fresh off a trip to the North Pole, our Little Nookers were still thirsty for a thrill...
and we of course were eager to quench it :)

 Luckily, our teachers had booked a trip to the stars where our
little ones would discover a solar system that was well, out of this world
Strap on your space suits astronauts,we're promising an adventure of astronomic proportions.

We counted down the seconds to blast off to discover our number of the week...1

Our astronauts took a planet a piece, then put their helmets together to 
complete a space age puzzle by placing the planets in their numerical order.

Of course we took a moment to hunt down our homeland...planet Earth. 

Our letter of the week {S} was the perfect pairing for our study of the planets. 
Did you know that S is for...
& Space Ship?


We borrowed a training tip from our friends at INSERT
tracing the path from each spaceship to its rightful owner.

Next, we took on a mysterious matching mission that required full use of our memories.

Astronaut L snagged herself a pair of roaming robots while 
Astronaut C snatched a couple of ships headed for space!

We made sure to re-tune our listening ears before sitting down for a space inspired story time. 

and then we blasted off to the art room to make stars glitter and space ships fly!

Can you say "Constellation" while cutting them?

How many eyes does your martian have?

Can I paint my space ship with my hands?

a little sorting goes a long way!

Our astronauts had to fuel up and recharge...

"This is how you peek through your hands"!

Comet, Comet, Comet, Comet, Shooting!
