That's a Wrap! 2017-2018

Here are some standout moments from the end of school!

On June 8th we performed "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" for friends and family.  We read the book, made props, and made the story come to life!  Check out our performance below!

We also made our way into the forest on June 8th.  
We played a lot.  Some of us pretended we were different creatures while others focused on building and creating with various natural materials.

For our last snack in the forest we made s'mores!  We chose sticks that were as thin as our pinkies and as long as our arms.  Some of us accidentally burned them and picked the burnt parts off.  Luckily the marshmallows were huge!  

It was sticky, sweet, and extremely delicious.

Before lunch we went on an adventure.  We hiked and found a huge tree that had fallen and its roots were in the air.  We climbed on it but were careful not to break the roots.

On the last day of school we celebrated by having field day!  There was face paint, relay races, and a very cold water soaker for teachers...  It was a great day!

Forest Friday, June 1st

"I like when we get to have stations." -Mannered Meadow Vole
"I like the way we get to play." -Brave Black Bear
"I like to play in the forest." -Responsible Red Squirrel
"I like when we have snack." -Balanced Blue Jay

Instead of writing in our journals we reflected about our favorite part of the forest.  There were many highlights for us but most of us said that we loved the amazing snacks in the forest.

On our way to the forest we stopped by the garden to take a look at the progress made thanks to the garden club.  Mr. Sadowski grabbed some asparagus for our special snack.

During play time we played many active games.  Some of us were pretending that we were animals while others were helping the animals by creating places for them to stay.  Others were using sticks as tools and building forts.

We also checked our rain gauge and found less than an inch of water.  We predicted that it would get more water soon since thunderstorms were expected in the afternoon.

For snack we made a frittata.  A few of us helped to crack 36 eggs.  We also cut up asparagus and other yummy veggies.  We mixed it all together and set it on the fire so that it could cook up.  It was fluffy when it was all cooked and we cut it up into little pieces.  We tried it and almost all of us wanted seconds.

Our last day in the forest will be next Friday.  Parents are welcome to join us and celebrate!
