The beginning of the week started off super awesome outside! We still had some fishing rods to use, and noticed some new beans growing in the garden! We talked about the United States, sang the Star Spangled Banner and each got to explore a mini US flag! We busted out the World Map and pointed out where the United States, our home, is. We explored “physics” outside using a wrecking ball with some blocks. We tried out mulch vs. sand, and found out that the heavier sand was more effective in knocking down the blocks! Yoga with Ms. Heather and Ms. Vanessa was awesome, as usual. Nick visited our room on Wednesday morning and helped us make shadow puppets with his cool flash light. Show and tell was a hug hit—we demonstrated how certain trucks work, read quickly through a book, watched little dolphins dance. In the afternoon, Arielle presented us with some great organic/vegan ingredients to make patriotic cookies. We spread sunbutter on the cookies, and decorated them with sprinkles, raisins, and a fruit gummy. We stuck a small flag at the end to bring it all together. Thursday morning was a blast—we made a sand castle village using molds for castles, turtles, and frogs. We found a grasshopper and gave him a temporary home. We got to talk about his different body parts, compare him to a pretend grasshopper we know well, and ultimately set him free. We went out to splash, but spent most of our time blowing red white and blue bubbles, waving a flag around, having dance party, and getting our faces painted!
