Thank you so much for all of your participation in the last week! Our Family Night was a big success! Friends were really excited to audition, rehearse, and set up the classroom for their performance of Mrs. Piggle Wiggle's The Slow-Eater-Tiny-Bite-Taker Cure. It was great to see the students actively work together to help make this show the best it could be. During rehearsals, friends gave each other feedback about different actions and lines that they could say when in character. My favorite part was seeing each student make the character come to life in their own unique way! We love reading from Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, so if you haven't check that book out, I encourage you to!
I am still working on editing the recording of the play. If you have any pictures of this special day, please email the to me! Thank you!
This past Saturday was our Building Day for the Beautification Project of the front of our classes! Many families came out and helped to build FOUR more planter boxes!! It was great to see kids helping carry wood, take measurements, and use power tools! Thank you to everyone who came out to help BEAUTIFY our school! I'm so excited to get these new planter boxes filled up, so if you can help us get SOIL, please bring in what you can! Thank you in advance!
We had a beautiful field trip to the Torrey Pines Natural Reserve! What an exciting opportunity this was for us to learn more the importance of taking care of nature. We have talked about this many times and have discussed different reasons why taking care of nature is important and why we should leave nature in it's home instead of taking it with us. It's even one of our agreements for our Gardening Crew! Now, after hearing an expert, we feel even more confident that nature is something beautiful and should be respected. It's always so exciting hearing friends give each other reminders when it comes to how to take care of our surroundings. We asked some great questions and I was very impressed at how well did on our trip! We recognized each other for our efforts of being respectful visitors!
The museum created quite a stir for us. Looking at the "stuffed animals" brought up a lot of questions for us.
Are these animals real? If so, why aren't they moving?
What are they stuffed with?
How come they're in the positions they are in?
Some friends already have some theories about this. I'm anxious to see how this helps foster more inquiries in our conversations!
Thank you to all the families who helped us with this trip! We couldn't have done it without you!
Thanks for checking out the blog and for sharing your wonderful children with out community!
