Field trip Fun

We had a great day. We travelled to the park and enjoyed playing on a really cool playground. They were super respectful of the other kids and families playing there. Afterwards we had a fun picnic lunch in the shade. You could not have asked for a more beautiful day! Finally, we made it to Kaleidoscope. They had a blast. We were pretty tired by the time we got back to school. Whew! What a day!

Lunch at the park


Beautiful Butterflies of our own!

The best part of the week was getting to have butterflies in our classroom. On Between Monday and Tuesday, we got 5 butterflies. Today we came back from our trip to 4 more. We love having them in here and watching them fly around. They have been so fun to have in our room. On Monday we will be releasing our first set into our Schumacher garden. Maybe we will see them around during recess time!

What wonderful weather!

The weather was so beautiful this week. We just had to take some pictures of the fun we were having outside.

Math: Attributes

This week we focused on sorting and classifying objects by their attributes. We learned we can sort by color, shape, and size. We practiced these skills through eye spy-naming 2 attributes of an object and then having our friends guess what it was, playing guess my rule-we would sort objects somehow and our friends had to figure out how we sorted them, todo math, and then we sorted several different picture cards and practiced naming (classifying them).

We celebrated principal's day on Wednesday. We appreciate Mr. Gabriel and Mrs. Toebben so much.
