With the arrival of spring, the children got to learn about birds, nests, and eggs. After looking closely at different kinds of real nests, they got to build their own using glue, lichen, and sticks. They used rocks to make bird eggs and even made feathered birds to sit in their nests.
Another springtime discovery came to visit in the courtyard. We spent a long time carefully observing how a snail moves, what happens when it is gently touched and describing out loud what we notice.
With the arrival of warmer weather and a bit less rain, we have been spending more time outside playing together! The children are helping one another, leading and following each other and pretending together. They are experiencing their first genuine friendships as they play at school with one another.
Inside the classroom, we have been working on sorting, counting, building, and shape exploration and, of course, lots of art!
