WORM PROJECT

Now that it is Spring, we have been noticing worms on our playground. This has led into our Worm study! We began by just observing worms in an aquarium. We came up with a list of questions that we wanted to find out about worms. We had lots of questions! We discussed how we would find out the answers to these questions-research! Children have been looking through and reading books about worms. They have learned a lot of information so far! They each made a page for our book, If I Were a Worm. We have also painted with fishing worms, watched the video "Diary of a Worm," had worms for snack (spaghetti) and taken pictures of worms or signs of worms outside. The children have been really interested in these amazing creatures!

Trike-a-Thon Success!!!

Thank you to all who donated or solicited donations for our Trike-a-Thon. We raised $1,300 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! The money is on the way to the hospital and we will hopefully have our prizes before the end of the school year! Listening to how excited the children were to raise money for sick children in the hospital was very heartwarming! Thanks again!!
