Look at the interesting object that was shared with our class today! An abandoned wasp nest!
Wow! The children were fascinated with how it looked and smelled. We displayed it at our science center along with some other materials - books, writing materials, and hexagon pattern blocks.
We also found a time lapsed video of wasps and bees making their hives.
The books also showed the hives up close and we learned about the lifecycle of a bee. They grow in cocoons like butterflies!

Did you know the birds are singing today? Our children have enjoyed drawing on the new easel right at their height.
Ever since our trip to learn about maple syrup trees have been a reoccurring theme in the children's artwork.

The children voted and our new drama center is going to be a camping site!
Families we need your help. If you have a mini tent or sleeping bags or any other camping gear we can borrow to make this drama center realistic we would greatly appreciate your support. All materials will be returned in a few weeks when we are finished. Many thanks for your support of our children and program!

Our children love to write. This week we have been discussing the role of authors and illustrators and how books are made. We brought in the school binder so that the children could make their own books.
The binder punches holes in the paper and then gathers the papers into a spine.
