Princeton and Nolan helped Mrs. Patel and Mrs. Noah to plant the first edible plants in our sensory garden!  We planted a tomato plant and three cucumbers so far.  They wanted to see if the clippings from the tomato would grow, so we planted them also.

We found so many earthworms in the dirt and are excited about that because they will help the plants grow.

Lunch was especially tasty from Jimmie Johns, and drinks didn’t last long because we were working up a sweat in the classroom!

 

Thank you!

We had a lot of fun with our sorority sisters!  They taught us about recycling, lifecycle of a butterfly, the lifecycle of a chick and helped us to plant wildflowers.   We tie-dyed shirts too–we used our pincers  to twist and put rubber bands on so that our friends could put the dye of our choice on the shirts!!!  We can’t wait to see the finished product!

We took a walk to the fountain today, and noticed they are doing a lot of work to the fountain.  We watched team work together cutting/moving concrete with various tools!  They weren’t available for conversation, but it was interesting to watch.

We played in the grassy area closeby,and had fun with our imaginations!

The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, “The children are now working as if I did not exist.–Maria Montessori

 

Today was a great day!  The primary classes did a really good job working together in Mrs. Noah’s class. We came together in circle time to talk about the parts of a frog, and watched a short video which had 25 different colored frogs some of which were poisonous!

See next post for some of their lessons.
