April 29 - May 3
This week we learned about all sorts of interesting insects. We learned that worms eat dirt, spiders eat insects, caterpillars turn into butterflies, that ants carry heavy loads of food on their backs, and that crickets make a chirping sound by rubbing their legs together. We got creative with snack time this week. We made ants on a log out of pretzels, cookie butter, and had a choice of raisins, whoppers, and chocolate covered raisins to create our ants. Also, we made dirt cups out of pudding, cookie crumbles, and gummy worms on top. It was delicious!
This week we had a very special Mystery Reader. Ms. Rhonda came to our classroom and shared a wonderful book with us, "The Very Quiet Cricket" written by Eric Carle. This book was such a hit! Throughout the book, other insects say hello to the cricket and so he rubs his wings together to answer, but each time nothing happens until the end of the book when someone special greets him. You should really check this book out at the library so you can know the end of this awesome story. Thank you so much, Ms. Rhonda for sharing it with us!

Every time the cricket rubbed his wings together we rubbed our wings (hands) together too!
