  • Nature

    Posted by Jaclyn Richardson on 9/14/2018

    Thank you to our awesome nature teachers for helping us to learn all about insects. This morning our class watched a very entertaining puppet show which taught us some interesting facts about insects. We had the opportunity to build an insect in small groups. We learned some important vocabulary words (thorax, abdomen, antennae and compund eyes to name a few.) We also contrasted insects and arachnids. We had the chance to explore around our garden and find our own insects to study. What a beautiful morning.

    Thanks to a wonderful caterpillar finder, our class will have the opportunity to observe the magic of metamorphosis!

  • Partner Reading

    Posted by Jaclyn Richardson on 9/7/2018

    What a wonderful week we have had. We focused on building our independent reading stamina and revisited partner reading. Our class already knows so much about working in partnerships. Partners were excited and engaged in talking about their books and sharing their thinking.

  • Garden Fun!

    Posted by Jaclyn Richardson on 8/30/2018

    This afternoon we had the opportunity to observe all of the growing that has been happening in our class garden. We saw a forest of tomatoes, basil, kale, two enormous pumpkins, squash, cantelope, cucumbers and some beautiful flowers. We picked a very hefty watermelon and enjoyed it for a sweet snack.

    Our watermelon-yum!

    Today we worked out in the garden to get it ready for a delivery of compost. We weeded and removed the old plastic. We also made many observations and saw lots of creatures hiding out.

    Garden fun!

    Today we reviewed what we know about life cycles and the seasons. We have been talking about getting our garden ready to plant. Kids worked the soil and planted a seed of their choice for our class garden.

  • Maple sugaring!

    Posted by Jaclyn Richardson on 3/30/2018

    Today our amazing Nature teachers taught us all about another cycle: maple sugaring. We learned how to identify a maple tree, we tapped a tree and we had the opportunity to sample both sap and different kinds of syrup. The kids were able to identify the fake syrup after the taste testing. Yum!
