A small black bug was found outside in KW yesterday and given a home in a jar. The children named him "Anty McFireflier". When we found him this morning, however, he had passed away. We were very sad to lose him, but it gave us an opportunity to talk about all our experiences with bugs. We also wondered where we could find another ant just like him somewhere on the playground.
Because we cared for Anty, we placed him in a special bowl with a leaf. Lila made him a card, and asked everyone in the class (including teachers) to draw a heart.
The Continued Story of Mac and his Clay Zombie...
We carefully built a wall using sand as the mortar.
We swung from the climbing pole upside down.
And we went down the slide like a surfer!
