When Life Gives You Snow...


Today during morning meeting, we read Clark the SHark: Afraid of the Dark. Ask your child what his/her favorite part of the story was!


Another awesome music session with Raph today! Hooray for music!









When life gives you snow, you make snowballs! Happy Spring :)

The Letter Blend SH!




Today during morning meeting, we begin working on the letter blend SH. We sing songs and read poems filled with SH words. After, we create this awesome word list. Well done, friends!

The Grass is Always Greener...



Check out the grass we grew! Looks like our forest creatures like it :) 



We counted our trinkets and we are at 94! Six to go and we celebrate all the kindness, listening, problem solving and hard work we've accomplished in the classroom with something special!



Nice bear house, Quinn!

New Discoveries!


Wes finds a worm outside. After a little research, we learn that worms do indeed have both a head and a tail. The head is the end closest to the thick band around the worms body. If the tail end of the worm gets cut off, it will grow back, but not the other way around. You learn something new every day!





Karsyn donates a large box of puff paints to our classroom. We explore with them during morning free choice.



Kallen writes his name in puff paint. You need a microscope to see it, but it's there! :)




Karsyn, Laura and Lily discover the art of symmetry! They love placing paint on one side of the paper and then folding it over to create a mirror image. What an awesome discovery! 




Those babies needed a good cleaning! Thank goodness we have such caring and nurturing friends in our classroom.



Aatreyu makes a kinetic sand ball using the half circle mold. Great idea!



 
We are 9 trinkets away from celebrating yet another 100 trinkets. It was time for us to begin brainstorming what exactly that celebration will be. Check out our list!
