A RECENT SUCCESS
The school year is in full swing and the children are all well settled in. We have a great mix of returning and new children; they are all getting to know each other, making new friends and practicing grace and courtesy. We have been talking about peace education and learning to problem solve without teacher intervention.
In September we learned about different invertebrates and the children enjoyed working with small objects identifying their different body parts and learning their names.
This month the children are learning in detail about spiders - just in time for Halloween! We have been identifying them by type, color, size, pattern and whether they’re poisonous or nonpoisonous. What their habitat is, how they spin their web, and there was extra excitement to learn why spiders don’t get caught in their own silky webs!
We are also learning about the continent of Australia. It’s people, animals, plants, food, landmarks and art. If you are from, or have travelled to Australia you are welcome to come visit the classroom and share your experiences with us.
