We are at the forest Mon, Wed, Thur and Fri this week. We are waiting for the seashore to become available and then will switch locations. Please have your child wear a sun hat now that the warm weather has finally arrived.
Our classroom will be buzzing with life this month as caterpillars are arriving Wednesday and should be in the classroom by Thursday. We are looking for frog eggs so if you come across some please collect a few for us. We are also waiting for fertilized eggs from a farmer on Gabriola who is bringing them in later this week. The cost for our caterpillars will be funded by a grant. The eggs are a generous donation.
Miss Carpenter will be the teacher in charge this week for the mornings and part of the afternoon. She is working on a measurement unit for math as well as life cycles for science. We will continue with Daily Five as well as Daily Math Practice of familiar math concepts.
I am planning two field trips while Miss Carpenter is with us. We are hoping to go to Morrell Sanctuary as well as a nice hike at Westwood Lake. The facilitator fee for Morrell Sanctuary is being paid for through a grant that Mrs. Frey obtained. Families will be asked to cover the bus cost.
