Hello Sandstone families! This week in our classroom we have been discovering more about the season of spring! We have welcomed spring in Sandstone with our senses wide open. We have been seeing sunshine, dirt, mud, grass, and bugs. We have been hearing birds chirping, and more children playing. We have been smelling the fresh air. We have been feeling the texture of mud and lady bugs crawling on our hands.
We have noticed being in our snow suits makes our bodies too hot so we have just been needing our light jackets or sweater, our rain boots, and our splash pants. It takes us much less time to get outside! Our yard is getting very muddy and messy so we have been exploring the other side of the building more in then sunny afternoon. We have been searching for lady bugs in the grass and around the trees with our magnifing glasses. Some of us let them crawl all over us and some of us are a little bit weary about the idea of them in our hands. We are learning to be gentle with bugs because they are much smaller than us and they are living things just like me and you. I wonder what other insects we can find as Spring continues to bloom. On the walking trails we have been running around and around and cheering each other on as we race. Some of us sit on the side lines up high on the tall wooden planters and watch the races speed by, shouting “Hurray”, and “Go, Go, Go!”
As we all know, we love books in Sandstone! So we spruced up our book shelf with lots of books about spring and even some brand new books! We get so excited to see new books in our classroom! Adler, Isla, and Keegan spend most of their day in the book corner flipping through the pages while reciting the words or songs.
We can’t wait to see what else Spring has in store for us! Have a fantastic weekend, we will see you on Monday!,
Brooke, Jess, Paulette
