Preschool Learning Online Fall Newsletter 
School aged kids are back to school and fall is here for most of us. What can we do asParents, Early Childhood Educators and Home Care Providers?Get the children in to a “school” like routine. This will help our children learn routine,and help to better equip them when they start grade school.If you work at a day care chances are the centre has a routine to work for them includingscheduling for breaks, lunch breaks, etc. If you are at home or looking for a change tothe daily schedule, here is a sample idea.
Sample Schedule:
Morning
6:30-8:30Parent drop off, free play, clean up (7:15-*bathroom routine)8:30-9:00Snack, clean-up, books and puzzles9:00-10:00Outside free play, and games10:00-10:15*Bathroom Routine10:15-11:15Circle time, Art, Sensory, Dramatic Play, Science, Blocks, etc, Clean up11:15-11:30Wash-up/*bathroom and sit for lunch11:30-12:15Lunch time, wash-up
Afternoon
12:15-2:15Nap time and/or quiet time activities2:15-3:30Wake-up, *bathroom routine, clean up quiet activities, snac3:30-4:30Outside free play4:30-5:30free play, parent pick up
* These bathroom routines are set up throughout the day for all children to go to thebathroom to avoid so many children having to go at different times all throughout theday, of course though, if any child had to go to the bathroom in between those times theywould be given the time to go.
 
This schedule can be changed to what seems easiest for you and your group that is inyour setting, but the main point here is that when these routines and schedules arefollowed closely everyday, children become familiar with routines and structure and willthus have an easier time when entering grade school.Even if you are a parent at home with only your own children, scheduling your day is agreat thing to do with your children as it will benefit them in the same way.
Fun Food Tasting Ideas:
With fall approaching, some wonderful foods to talk about and taste are:
Apples
(cut up and served with different dips with snack)
Apple Cider
(Let the children experience it warm and cold)
Maple Syrup
(take a class trip to see how it’s made, can have waffles and syrup for asnack, or try maple syrup cookies for a treat)
Pumpkin/seeds
(as a circle activity, cut top off and seed pumpkin, wash and roast seedsto show children the process, allow children to handle pulp as a unique sensoryexperience)
Sweet Potatoes
(can try at lunch)
Cranberries
(can try in cookies or plain)
Squash
(can try at lunch)
Chili
(great warm lunch idea with homemade biscuits)
Biscuits
(can be made as a cooking activity and served with lunch)
Creamy Soups
(great lunch idea with side of garlic bread or sandwiches)
*For some great fall recipes using these foods, go to:http://www.preschoollearningonline.com/HealthySnacksforkids.htmland take alook through the pages.
