We had a great first week in the 2 day class. We spent time getting to know each other, and getting to know our classroom and routines. Kirsten interviewed each student and teacher, so that we could have a class book to read and learn about each other. We sang new songs with Marit, and met Mr. Rabbit in Helen's theater class. We read fun books together, and enjoyed beautiful August weather on the playground. It is going to be a great school year!
We made a list of things we know about apples, and learned that our class will be visiting the apple orchard soon!
We also had a performance by Dr. Sasha Garver. She played a few familiar tunes on her flute, and showed us a "kid-size" flute!
We found a monarch caterpillar on our milkweed in the garden, as well as grasshoppers and other insects.
