Thanks to all the families who came to the art show. It was wonderful to see children show their families their artistic creations. Some of the children are giving voices to the people they made in the Dream City.
We are moving on from learning about modern art to studying birds, butterflies and the earth. All five of our caterpillars have become butterflies. Today, we released three of them. Two butterflies had just emerged from their chrysalises and their wings are still drying.
The children are germinating seeds and have learned that plants need air, water and sunlight. Soon (we hope!) they will plant sprouts into biodegradable pots. Many children are fascinated by worms, beetles and other insects and have delivered worms to our raised garden beds.
Children have also been making trips to Mars and other planets in a rocket ship created by Jenna.
Auntie Numero, a snake that likes numbers, has taken 0 and 1. Duck’s sister, Duckalina, is guarding the number line and gives the children updates about the estimated arrival of her brother, Duck.
