We would love to thank our room parents Siobhan, Ali and Alicia for our breakfast social this morning! The children were thrilled to invite families and caregivers into the classroom to share our space and to kick off our first open morning meeting! You are officially welcomed to join us on Wednesday and Friday morning meetings. These are times for us to share, plan and think through ideas together; we are excited to share this time with you!
Austin, Lou Lou and Grace helped us make a compost bowl to hold our daily fruit and vegetable scraps. They formed a bowl and illustrated compostable foods like strawberries, carrots, cucumbers and more. We have been bringing our compost to a drop of site, but we are also researching how we can keep composting worms in the classroom. Composting is a wonderful and rewarding habit that offers us a chance to learn about life cycles, recycling and conservation while partaking in a symbiotic relationship with our little slimy friends. Let us know if you compost at home!
Other children working with clay were inspired by all the talk of worms and decided to make homes, caves and amenities for the worms. When the children have brought live creatures into the classroom, some children are concerned that the insects need to go back to their home and family. Do we share the same needs as the creatures we encounter?
Charlie: This is a cave for the worms to hide in. Here's a worm hole for them to go in and out.
Joslin: I finished the toilet! But I don’t know where the worms can wash their hands... Ah! They don’t even have hands!!!
