October 2021

Welcome to our October curriculum theme, Harvest Time

It’s Harvest Time at TLE! October’s curriculum theme takes our little learners on a journey down to the farm to discover how foods are grown, harvested, and make their way into our homes. Through TLE's Advanced STEM Curriculum, children will participate in explorations that foster innovative thinking and hands-on learning. They will manipulate garden tools, compare and contrast seeds, experiment with hydroponic planting, get their hands dirty with soil, and categorize farm animals.

Family Connections

To support this month’s curriculum lessons at home, talk with your child about what they think life on a farm would be like. Point out familiar animals in your neighborhood and read books featuring farm animals. This is also the perfect opportunity to enjoy a healthy snack of fruits and vegetables together. You may even consider taking a trip to a local pumpkin patch or farmer’s market!
