Karen was away so we meet Fiona who got to know that we loved being outdoors and involved in planting, tasting some of the produce in our vegetable garden, digging in the dirt and discussing the importance of our helper jobs which are.....electricity, water and the compost, which are going so well. Some of the children assisted each other to put soil into baskets and then succulent plants were planted. Have a look around the room and yard to see if you could find these baskets of succulents and know that your child helped with this. If you have plants/vegetable seedlings that we could use we would greatly appreciate it. A grub was found in the dirt near the big tree so it was put into a container and then onto the nature table for all to see. Of course this led into a discussion about what creatures live under the ground or in the dirt. We would like to let you know that Sydney has broken her arm and hopefully will be back next week. Take care. Chaitanya, Sofija, Ivy and soon to be Zahra are all on holidays. Have a great time.
Karen was back. Even though the sun was not really shining and the wind was rather cold the children wanted to stay outdoors for most of the session. The children were able to contribute their artistic talents to the artwork that will be auctioned off at the Auction/Trivia night on Friday 6/9/2013. Look forward to seeing you all there, certainly is a fun night. Many of the children were very involved in putting out fires!!!! They worked together to organise and drive the fire engine and then to get ladders to climb higher to put out the fires that were up the tree. When we finally went inside the children each held a chick which they enjoyed doing. They discussed that the chicks have “small small” bones and that they are fuzzy. They will grow into hens and that they will also lay eggs. Some were concerned about where the chicks are going when they leave the Kindergarten and if we will see them again. It was explained that some are going to a grandma’s house who has a farm and that the others are going back to their family on a farm. It has been very fortunate that the chicks have been with us. So much to learn.
Have an enjoyable weekend everyone.
