A Peek At Our Week in the Cherry Blossom Classroom!
This week we learned about Flowers! We built upon our knowledge of seeds from last week, and talked about how a flower grows, the different parts of a flower, and why pollinators love flowers so much… which will take us into next week! 🙂
Our new favorite work is our Flower Arranging work from Practical Life. Who knew there was so much you could do with flowers? We also started another science experiment! What do you think the colored water will do to the white flowers? Do you have a hypothesis?
On Day 18 of our butterfly observations, we were lucky enough to watch the Painted Lady butterflies emerge from their chrysalises! We watched as they climbed out, rested, and dried their wings. We loved every single moment of this experience in our classroom! We’ll release them on Monday and Tuesday next week!
We had our very last Library visit with Ms. Cat for this school year. We read books and sang songs about space! We can’t wait to have more fun with Ms. Cat next school year!
A Special Visit from Venom!
One of our students brought in their bearded dragon, Venom, to introduce to our class! We reviewed what we had learned about reptiles and enjoyed learning more about bearded dragons! We learned what they eat (roaches and crickets!), about the spikes on their bodies, and about how they shed their skin. Thank you so much for visiting us Venom! We loved it!
Peek Into Next Week!
