This week we learned all about earth! What it’s made of, different types of land and water forms, the animals that live in and around those forms, as well as other things like the water cycle! We got to explore all things pond life and watched the pond evaporate right before our very eyes!
We want to thank all of our teachers, families, students and surrounding community for such a wonderful year! We ended the year with a little face paint fun! Can you guess who is what?
The season for tadpoles is upon us! We have been taking a lot of nature walks to our pond in this beautiful, warm weather. The children love exploring at the pond on our property. Some of their favorite activities include searching for tadpoles, climbing up the steep hill, finding bugs in and around the pond, picking flowers and making big pots of soup with natural materials they find!
We have been taking advantage of the beautiful, warm weather we have had this last week! The beginning of spring is such a special time of the year on the property because we have so much to discover and explore. We have been going on walks to look for the ‘signs of spring!’ We have found and smelt new plants growing, felt the warmth of the sun, heard the beautiful sounds of the numerous birds, and explored the changes in landscape (like the slowly disappearing mud)!
If you listen closely you may hear the children singing our favorite spring time song, Spring is Here! Here are the words in case you’d like to sing along.
Spring is Here
Spring is here said the bumblebee (high sweet bumblebee voice)
How do you know said the old oak tree (low raspy oak tree voice)
I just saw a daffodil, dancing like a fairy on a windy hill!
