Community Helpers

WOW! We wrapped up our community helpers unit today with a show and tell of our favorite community helpers. The kids were adorable and did a fantastic job of talking about their choice. After our show and tell, we painted self-portraits of ourselves as community helpers. Click the play button below and check out our awesome paintings!

New England Aquarium

Today we were treated to a special program today from the New England Aquarium. Maris and Julia, from the aquarium, did an amazing job of helping us to imagine we were at the beach searching in the tide pools for small creatures. We learned about snails, hermit crabs, clams, mussels, sea stars, and more. They brought many friends from the aquarium for us to hold and touch. Although many friends were nervous at first to touch the animals, everyone quickly warmed up to them and had a great time. We would like to thank the PTO for sponsoring this program for kindergarten.

Be sure to check out the New England Aquarium for some family activities for home and special events happening. (a great day trip for April vacation!)

New discovered blog

I thought I would share a new resource I discovered over the weekend. It has great ideas for activities at home.

Our Pond Creations

The kids had a blast creating their pond murals. They did a fantastic job working in groups and coming up with creative ways to create a pond.
