A Peek At Our Week in the Cherry Blossom Classroom!
We have had such a busy week in the Cherry Blossom class! We continued our study of Africa, we took a field trip, celebrated some birthdays, wrote some books, and met a hedgehog!
This week we designed our own African necklaces.
We met an African Dwarf Hedgehog named Daisy!
Our favorite authors have begun writing books featuring animals that you can find in Africa, such as elephants, lions, and hippos! We are encouraging the children to write their own words in their books. Look for more information about this method of teaching writing soon! They’ll also include a cover that has a title, a picture, and their name as the author! After they have finished, they can sit in the reading area and read their books!
We had a wonderful time at our field trip to the Sieberling Nature Realm! We used our 5 senses to explore the hiking trail. We explored what the bark feels like on different types of trees, saw some different early spring wildflowers, and a blue heron flew right over us! Inside the Nature Realm, we got up close to a box turtle!
A very Happy Birthday to our newest 6 year old and our newest 5 year old!
Overheard in the Classroom…
“Hey dude… how are you liking your book?”
