This week we buzzed into our insect unit like a bunch of true busy bees. The kids kicked it all off with a pollination experiment using the magic of cheese puff dust. They are quite the talented pollinators! ~Ms Leandra
We also created a bumble bee relay for the kids. They learned some fun new exercises and raced the stopwatch to see how quickly they could complete them. They did a great job and had a lot of fun cheering on one another! ~Ms. Michelle
We are three weeks into our afternoon tennis lessons and you can already see incredible growth. We may have some future Serena Williams and Roger Federers in our midst! ~ Ms Leandra
Our preschoolers put their green thumbs to work this week planting seedlings that they have been lovingly tending to. With a little time you will soon be harvesting some delicious veggies from the plants they are growing! ~ Ms Michelle
We read the story Big Earth, Little Me and talked about the upcoming Earth Day this Sunday. We discussed ways we can help our Earth stay beautiful and decided that cleaning up garbage around our school was a good place to start. We gathered our high school teachers, some gloves, and garbage to help us on our mission. ~Ms Michelle
Our Spring field trip to the Seattle Aquarium was so much fun! During our trip we saw beautiful fish, a huge octopus, otters playing and lots more. We were even able to touch some of the ocean dwelling creatures including hermit crabs, sea anemones, and sea stars. Thank you to all the parents and siblings that joined us; you made a great trip even better! ~ Ms Leandra
This week we hopped into a new season...Spring! We talked about the science behind rain clouds, opened a flower shop in our classroom, and planted lovely gardens. ~Ms Leandra
After reading Mouse's First Spring we decided to go out for a walk to see if we could find signs of Spring. We found flower buds, flowers blooming, birds flying, and leaves growing. We took along a clipboard with some things to look for while we walked!
