SEPTEMBER 4, 2015
GARDENING - We harvested & tasted many tomatoes, some sorrel, chives, and peppers from our school gardens. We've also picked and eaten some apples from a tree that was planted by kindergartners almost 14 years ago! Still to come . . . harvesting potatoes, onions, and a few carrots, and hopefully some cooking projects.
MONARCH CATERPILLARS - We are raising monarch caterpillars in our classroom. It is exciting to see them grow so quickly, and we look forward to seeing them make their chrysalises and emerge as butterflies in the next few weeks. Right now, we are busy feeding them lots of milkweed leaves!
CLASSROOM COMMUNITY - We spent the first week and a half of school getting to know each other and learning school rules and routines. We met many new teachers and began our music, art, and P. E. specials. We also found our place in the greater school community during whole school meetings, recess, and lunch. We were excited to meet and spend time with our 5th and 6th grade buddies!
