We spent September getting to know each other, the school and class routines. We read books about starting school and friendship. We have been attending Meeting for Worship since the first day of school. You are welcome to join us any morning at 9am. The children are already singing along.
Painting is very popular. We have painted with golf balls, shower puffs, balloons, our fingers, and brushes. We made stepping stones for the Peace Garden and shared them at Meeting in the garden.
The Ladybugs love to visit Oscar, the bunny. They also enjoy the new instruments in the Peace Garden. We have been exploring the outside play areas - the taxi, playhouse and sandbox are very popular.
We have started our bear unit. We read bear books including Going on a Bear Hunt and sang the "Hokey Pokey" bear style (with fuzzy ears, paws and tail). We sorted and counted little bears.
The Ladybugs received a very special gift from the Grasshoppers. The Grasshoppers created a ladybug house complete with design details, including a skylight, "so the children will not be afraid in the dark". Liza and I like to peek in the skylight to check on them. The Ladybugs have had so much fun in the house.
