I hope that this finds you all well, happy and secure. Last week we finished up January and our unit on winter weather, and this week begins February, and our unit on rocks!
February greeted us at Fiddleheads with cooler days, some sporadic rain showers, and a whole lot of mud! This week we began our rock unit which has been exciting and full of fun new facts. We are learning all about the different types of rocks and how they are formed, the rock cycle, and so much more! We learned some rock rhythm songs, a rock chant, and explored the big rocks around the creek bed in the lower part of the park near the Salmon Street entrance, which we visited on Wednesday. A new game involving hidden gems has also quickly become a class favorite!
This week we invited our new friend Everly into our class with enthusiasm and joy. We are now fully enrolled. As each week passes we get more and more comfortable in our routine and with each other. Circle time participation is coming along great, and we continue to build our concentration practices with our body check in and sit spot observations. Next week we will continue with one more week of our rock unit as we explore this amazing aspect of nature and all it has to offer!
