We had another nice week last week talking about flowers and their journey to make seeds and fruits. We read some great flower books, played some fun flower and bee games, did some guided imagery imagining the life of a flower and made tissue paper flowers and flower cookies.
We have been watching a nesting hummingbird in the park, listening to drumming woodpeckers and calling robins, and watching the leaves emerge bit by bit each day. There is one big leaf maple that we sit under almost every day for snack, and we have watched it though the journey of the seasons and it is now in flower with little leaves ready to open.
This week we begin talking about worms and dirt. I will be having a pile of compost delivered for the garden and we will be doing lots of digging and shoveling and hopefully finding lots of worms as we get the garden ready to plant.
We have a new friend joining us this week. He just moved from the Bay area very recently. We will all be talking a lot about ways to help our new friend feel at home in his new school.
