We had a great time during our Valentine's Day Celebration back in February, and invited family members to join us when we passed out Valentines to our friends! We got to eat the cookies we made during our cookie decorating game too!
|Happy Valentines Day!!!|
Whew! it was a fun, crazy month and we all made great memories during it! Our next adventure is our field trip to Schnepf Farms! We got to have hand-on fun while learning and playing at a real farm! My favorite was the slide down into the goat pen! We also picked lettuce and even got to take some home! We were able to pet animals, pick vegetables, ride the hay wagon and the train all around the farm. It was a great day!
|Picking Red Leaf Lettuce|

Now for a few things that we are doing in the classroom:
|We studied Jelly Beans and how water and baking soda & vinegar effected them.|
|We dropped one jelly bean with water, and one with a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. Guess which one was the favorite???|
|Along with our jelly beans, we also make observations about those yummy marshmallow treats called Peeps! We looked, felt and tasted them. Then wrote down our data.|
We had special guests come into our classroom on Thursday! Because of the Spring Holiday, baby chicks were able to come and visit us. We got to learn about how a chick comes out of an egg and how the mama hen keeps them warm and how to take care when holding them. Check out some of the cute chick pics!!!
They had fun and found out that chickens are my favorite animal!!! It was exciting! Then we ended the day with an Easter Egg hunt! All the kids brought in plastic, toy-filled, eggs for our hunt. Ms. Emmalee and Ms. Theresa hid them while we waited for our turn. Then we hunted, gathered our goods and said a huge THANK YOU to each other for the goodies.
