Field Trip to Bushy Hill Nature Center
On Wednesday, May 22 the Kindergarten
classes rode the bus to Bushy Hill Nature Center in Ivoryton for a field trip. While they were there, the children took a guided walk in a cedar swamp and visited the nature center and learned about life in a drop of water and also met some turtles there. The children also used nets at pond and found tadpoles and bugs that our guide, Hank, told us about.
Everyone enjoyed spending most of the beautiful day outside!!! Bushy Hill was a fun place to visit and the children learned a lot!!!
THANK YOU TO ALL OUR CHAPERONES - Hope and Hunter’s mom, Charlie’s mom, Emma’s mom and Madison’s Dad - FOR COMING ON OUR TRIP AND HELPING US!!!!
Celebrating Mother’s Day
On Thursday afternoon, May 16, we invited our moms or special guests to our classroom for a Mothet’s Day celebration! The girls and boys made corsages and placemats for the celebration! They sang songs and poems to their special guests, as well!! The children enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies they had made with their moms along with some other treats! The boys and girls also made a flower with each petal saying something special about their mom for a gift! They each planted marigold seeds for their mom in a milk carton which we changed to make it look like a wheelbarrow!!!

The girls and boys all took turns measuring and mixing to make the cookies for our Mothet’s Day celebration that afternoon!!! They had fun learning about quarters and halves - and they made delicious cookies!!!!
