Welcome back to another week of fun and learning. We had morning circle time and did work in the beautiful sunshine. 

Today we put on our thinking caps and used the environment around us to dig, build, and create homes for our ants. We tried using the large connectors outdoors, the diggers, and then our hands to see what we could accomplish. However the students decided they wanted to build homes for themselves instead and play chase using the playground toys.

We had a blast recapping what we have learned the past month and will continue to ramp things up for our fantastic spirit week coming up.

Today was exciting. We took a speedy walk to the park to beat the heat. At the park we explored nature by bird watching, ant watching, picking flowers, and listening to the many sounds of the city. 

Today after circle time we we used our imagination and pretended to be paleontologist. But we were not looking for bones, but for ants. We used sand and poppy seeds to do this work. Our friends were very creative in suggesting that the sand was a deep ant hill and every time we searched the ants would run away.

It was amazing. 

Have a great rest of your day. See you tomorrow!

Welcome to Wednesday everyone. We hope everyone’s week has been a fantastic one thus far. 

Today we talked all about Dragonflies. We learned that dragonflies were one of the first winged insects to evolve over 300 million years ago! There are more than 5,000 known types of dragonflies! They are expert flyers and nearly their whole head is an eye. Our friends were excited to learn about them. 

Today we used plastic spoons, a sharpie, tape, and colored construction paper to make our very own dragonfly. They turned out awesome.
