A Peek At Our Week in the Cherry Blossom Classroom!
This week we learned about Pollinators! This was the perfect way to wrap up our May lessons as flowers are important to pollinators and pollinators are important to flowers! We learned about different types of pollinators: bees, butterflies, bats, and hummingbirds. We learned that pollinators drink nectar from the flowers and while they do that, pollen sticks to their bodies. We then learned that the pollinator takes that pollen to another flower and drops it off, allowing that flower to make new seeds! We ended our week with a special presentation from a beekeeper and tasted honey straight from the hive!
Operation Releasing Butterflies!
We let our Painted Lady Butterflies go on Monday and Tuesday this week. We were sad to see them go but were able to watch one of them fly right to a flower and drink nectar! How lucky are we?!?
We had our last Music, Art, and Science lessons for this school year. We enjoyed playing John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt one more time with Ms. Lisa. We finished most of our art projects with Ms. Varela, and brought our art portfolios home. And Mr. John showed us an experiment with FIRE!
A very Happy Birthday to our newest 4 year old!
