Magic School Bus Monday
We are studying insects and bugs again this week which we are enjoying very much. The Magic School Bus books are being used quite frequently lately for all of our Science studies. We are reading the Magic School Bus Inside a Beehive today and learning about the life cycle of a honeybee. It is very intersting. David is practicing is upper and lower case E's today and doing some phonics review as usual. The number 20 is what David is learning today and he will try to count by 10s today too. I am talking about community again today with David and telling him the different jobs people do in our community. We are also going to cut off the top of a carrot and then put it in water to see how it will grow. David's carrots and peas he planted are doing very well. He will be checking on their growth today. For arts and crafts, we will make a butterfly out of a paper towel, clothespin, watercolor paints, and pipe cleaner. When it is done we will hang it on a curtain in the kitchen or bedroom. We will also be looking for more butterflies today. I love Spring! Have a great day everyone!
