At a Glance
We have been reading nonfiction books about animals that live in and around the pond. We have learned some interesting facts.
- Snakes seem to be a favorite reptile to research. They swim side to side in the water.
- Ducks can lay up to 200 eggs a year.
- Polliwog is another name for tadpole.
Field Trip to Sesquicentennial Park
Next Wednesday, May 25th, is our field trip to Sesquicentennial State Park. Here are some things to make our day go smoothly. Please bring your child to school on time. We have procedures to complete. We leave between 8:15 and 8:30am and will return by 1:30pm.
Please apply sunscreen and bug repellant at home before your child comes to school. We are not allowed to put it on.
Please pack a paper bag lunch with your child’s name on it. Everything will be thrown away. No lunch boxes, containers, or water bottles will be brought back on the bus.
Please wear tennis shoes and socks—no sandals or Crocs. Please wear jeans or long capri pants as we will be trekking in the woods. Label all belongings (lunch, jackets, etc).
We ask that your child wear the Kindergarten Chicka Chicka Boom Boom shirt; if not, then a Midway shirt for identification. Our class chaperones are our homeroom moms. We are looking forward to a great trip!
