It's been awhile!
Between computer niches and my back injury, its been a month since my last post. The Spring session has been fun in spite of my week off. I sure missed those little ones! We have centered on new life and the cycle of the butterfly. The children love science and have been very interested in the process. Ask your child the stages of the butterfly! They can spout it right off!
We were able to release 20 painted lady butterflies in our garden. Check the Gilbert Parks and Recreation Facebook Page for our release photos!
The Thursday Class has enjoyed learning their new jobs and they remind ME! Children love responsibility and it makes them feel important and proud!
Quiet book reading time is also popular. I love to hear them making up stories to go along with the pictures. One of the first signs of a good reader!
We were able to play "Hungry Caterpillar" math on my iPad and then we acted out the stages of the butterfly from egg to flying!
So many beautiful butterflies and ladybugs.
Teamwork in the gym with tug-o-war. The first time we've learned how to play. As the children are getting older, I introduce more group games with rules to follow.
A fun tired crew after time on the playground.
LadyBugs and Earth Day coming this week!
