"How did it get so late so soon? It's night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?" (Dr. Seuss)
Our study of insects got off to a great start when we visited the Great Valley NatureCenter on May 9th. They hosted a lovely program and had plenty of insect-relatedactivities for the class to participate in. Afterwards, the students chose an insect tostudy and began individual research. They completed several extended projects relatedto their insect. Students also collected natural and creative materials to create a habitatdiorama. This study also used artistic, musical, and digital resources! Many thanks to Tr.Chris, Tr. Charmagne, and Tr. Scott for their help and support!
This all culminates with our Insect Celebration in early June. We hope parents and friends enjoy our writing, singing, and artwork!
Game Day is always fun! The students enjoyed an afternoon of multi-grade team activities. And no rain!! Thank you to Tr. Wes for organization and direction, and to all the parent volunteers!
It is almost time for our "Book Buddy" reading program to end...thank you for all the joyful help and support you put in over the year. The students are sure to want to take them home, and I will include some summer reading ideas in it!
