The children have planted sprouts into biodegradable pots and will soon put them into our school garden. Cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, peas, and tomatoes will soon fill the garden box.
Most of the birds that the children made have flown home. The children are also making bird feeders from pine cones that we are hanging from tree branches. We hope the children will see birds eating from them.
Many of the children have been searching for ladybugs, beetles, and ants when they’ve been outside. Laura has taught them a song about not squashing bugs and letting them go.
As we are in the final two weeks of school, we are going to give our future kindergarteners practice in opening their own lunch boxes (a skill that they will need next school year). This means that if your child is graduating, you should pack lunches that are easy to open. If you have questions about this, please email me. We want to help them be ready for the many changes yet to come.
