3-6: Planting Seeds and Watching the Magic!


We are having a wonderful time in 3 to 6 welcoming Spring! The afternoon workers planted seeds that have already begun to sprout! We will all transplant them to our garden and plant some more when the weather gets a little warmer! We are so excited to try all the new vegetables that we are growing!

Also, Annie has been helping the afternoon workers paint with watercolors. They each got to make their own version of "American Gothic" a couple weeks ago. Next week, they will try their hand at Van Gogh's sunflowers.

Hard at work in the 3-6 Classroom!

The Trinomial Cube (a+b+c)3



Toddler: Books, Birds, and Emotions. Oh MY!

The toddlers are exploring Dr. Seuss books and helping finish the rhymes.

The birds are visiting our bird feeders and we are identifying the Carolina Chickadee, Red Bird (Cardinals), Robins and Blue Jays. We also have a sensory box of bird seed to pour and scoop (and learn how to sweep up off the floor).

We are working on identifying our emotions and use this neat puzzle to manipulate how someone looks when they are sad, happy and mad!
