We watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lo-8UWhVcg which shows how the dog's feelings change from anger to compassion when he realizes why the bird is taking the worms. His act of compassion is rewarded even though he was not expecting it.
In this read aloud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IAjsv7MRwM&t=229s Brian starts his day with an act of kindness and people start paying it forward. We talked about how we could try this too!

Kindergarten April Curriculum Highlights
1st Grade April Curriculum Highlights
First Graders at BES got to participate in their first field trip, as they traveled to Marmon Valley Farm. Students got to take a wagon ride as they learned about native Ohio animals and their habitats, ride a pony, and see farm animals up close! Students got to experience many firsts and had a wonderful time! The first grade would like to thank the BES PTO for sponsoring the trip, BCS Bus drivers, first grade parent chaperones, and the staff at Marmon Valley.
2nd Grade April Curriculum Highlights
2nd Grade spent the past few weeks observing the butterfly life cycle, specifically painted ladies. The Bellefontaine Highschool Envirothon came to our classrooms to launch this process for us. You can see the cycle in the pictures below. The butterflies were released into their natural habitat when they reached the adult phase of their life cycle. On May 3rd we traveled to Camp Myeerah for our 2022 field trip. Students spent time with WildLife officer Adam Smith discussing different animals found in Logan County. Teachers set up scavenger hunts, hiking events, and outdoor exploration where we discussed how living things impact their environment. Logan County Soil and Water provided us with an eco-table where students were able to see a simulation of how pollution affects parts of our environment.
