We are down to the last week of school! Students, teachers, and parents are all really excited. We have still been doing great things, I just haven’t been photographing them. I also didn’t post last week because I was busy all weekend with my oldest son’s high school graduation and party. I will plan on doing one last post next week. Between field day, a field trip, 3/4 picnic, and the year-end PBIS celebration there will be plenty of pictures.
I’m just going to quickly summarize what we have been doing. First up is gardening. We harvested all of our early lettuce. The kids cut it, cleaned it, and packaged it for St. Anastasia’s food pantry. We were so proud of them, and they were so happy to help.
Once the lettuce was harvested, it was time to plant our fall crops. We turned the soil and then planted beans, broomcorn, and squash. Hopefully it grows well over the summer and we will have a great harvest.
We spent a lot of time hiking, doing phenology, and quiet spots. The kids have a whole lot of wiggles that we try to get out this time of year.
On our hike we ran into a pony pulling a cart – now that isn’t something you see every day!
Tuesday was bring a stuffed animal day, so in order to not be distracting we put them in a little herd in the back of the room so that they could watch us throughout the day.
PE was a review of some of their favorite games. The highlight was when the parachute came out.
Our classroom is being overrun by toilet paper! We were looking for donations for St. Anastasia’s, so if you can spare some we would love to add it to our collection!
Have a great week!
