Are you ready for one more week of summer? It flew by really fast. We just finished week 9 and it was "Theater and Face Painting" week. We did face painting and more face painting. Children asked to be specific characters of plays, movies, or wild animals. The three stories that became our plays this week were: "The Coyote and the Lizard", a Native American story; a Russian story "Bear Squash You All Flat", aka "The Mitten" and "The Little Red Hen". As we practiced our lines, casted the characters in the roles and acted according to the story, we quickly realized - this is hard work! And it takes a lot of time! But it was also a lot of fun. By the way, here is link to a study about the effect of Drama on Brain Function:
This week we were able to have a Bike Day! Children were super excited to ride their bikes in the parking lot. After riding, we had a delicious watermelon snack in the "coffee shop" section of the parking lot, by the sensory gardens.
We raised our lady bugs who have successfully transformed into adults and we released them in our gardens next to the insects that we thought looked like aphids. Hopefully, they have a good life. We read that they live for about a year in the wild. We will be watching them.
Next week is our "Garden Harvest Week". Please remember:
Enjoy the photos.
See you next week.
