Apple Picking With Johnny Appleseed!

Happy Birthday, Johnny Appleseed! The past few days our Pre-K 2 class has had the opportunity to learn all about apples and how they grow! Today our Pre-K 2 class had the opportunity to go on an apple picking adventure in honor of Johnny Appleseed! The children even made their very own Johnny Appleseed "pan hats" for their adventure! They had so much fun learning all about apples and our dear friend Johnny Appleseed!

It's Football Time In Tennessee!

Fall is for football! Football is a great way to build community! No matter what team you're rooting for, it is always great when we come together to enjoy a good game! We had a great time representing our favorite football teams today!

Frog Street and The Academy: Better Together!

Frog Street is an early childhood education curriculum built by early childhood educators. The curriculum's main focus is to ignite the minds of young children by fostering their academic, social, and emotional growth through purposeful lessons and materials that intentionally produce a positive outcome. Through extensive brain research Frog Street has built a curriculum that makes learning joyful and purposeful!
Our fall Frog Street curriculum is in full swing at the Academy of Harpeth Village! This month's theme is "All About Me"! Our teachers and students have had a blast learning all about the things that make them awesome and remarkable! We have loved seeing and hearing all the wonderful things the children have learned so far!

"My muscles help me jump!"

"Look! It's My Face!"

"I put my face puzzle together!"

"My ribcage protects my heart!"

"My heart pumps blood!"

"We used our bodies to make the letters in our names!

"I'm learning how to spell my name!"
