Hello, families! We’ve been lucky enough to have some great weather lately so most
of these photos were taken outside. The children are still quite fascinated with all
sorts of animal creatures and especially insects. There are so many different kinds to
be found on the playground at the moment and the children routinely tell a teacher
that they just spotted a roly-poly, ant, ladybug, bee, or spider (to name a few I can
think of from the top of my head). We also noticed that the bug hotels are now
homes for many ants and a few spiders (we couldn’t see within the depths of the
hotels and I wasn’t sure I wanted to!).
Last week I brought in a few items to show the class that I thought they’d enjoy.
They included two different kinds of moths, a white eggshell from a wild bird, a
mouse skeleton, and a baby turtle shell. Look at their faces as they check out these
things (especially the skeleton!).
