The highlight of this week’s “Farm” theme was the visit from Farmer Nate! He brought a cow and calf, sheep, lambs and many other animals. The children were able to pet the animals and even milk the cow! All of the children were respectful of the animals, Farmer Nate was very impressed with the Pine Room children for their attentiveness and thoughtful questions! The pictures are included in this week’s picture link below. Scroll all the way to the bottom for the more recent photos.
The Pine Room children also enjoyed engaging in pushups, yoga and meditation first thing every morning. The children have been working every other day on their language work book. This week they were also given the task of observing and comparing seeds from fresh fruits and vegetables and matching dried seeds to fresh seeds. The class continues talking about the continents and their countries, states and popular cities. The children have enjoyed learning the math pentathlon from each other and continue to work in their math books.
The Maple Room discussed farm animals and agriculture, and planted herbs to take home. The children continue to have work time in the morning and again in the afternoon. They also enjoy reading books and being read to in a small group.
We began bike week this Friday and will continue to have bike day each Friday until the end of summer camp. Please make sure to put your child’s name on their helmet and bike. This activity is for the preschoolers, the Pine Room children will go to the local park starting next Friday.
