Today we studied the Baobab tree and compared it to trees we have in the school yard. We looked at some Audubon prints of trees and talked about how we could sketch what we saw in the schoolyard. We talked about new tools we have for the classroom, binoculars and cameras, and got all ready to go outside. Then the lawnmowers started and dust and grass was flying everywhere. Soooo......we are flexible, and will go on our nature study tomorrow. We continued talking about what makes us special, and made torn paper self-portraits. The children did an amazing job and you will see these when you come in for our end of the year program.
I got a lot of testing done as the students worked today, so I am hoping one more day, two at most and we will be finished!
Thank-you to everyone who sent in permission slips and the fee for our field trip!
Just a plug for the Bells Mill Summer Camp...
It's not too late to sign up! If you are interested in your child attending summer camp, please let me know and I'll send home the registration form. This year's camp has great programs coming to it with Mad Science, Reptile Man and a My Gym session. And of course, the camp ends with a mini-field day!
Have a nice evening!
