Children showed continued interest in bugs and insects this past week. Their learning was enhanced by activities offered daily, like bug domino cards in the puzzle area, bugs with playdough and a worm investigation in the science area. At circle time we read The Hungry Caterpillar and Teacher Kerry taught the RLO group a fingerplay about a caterpillar.
A highlight during the week was when Teacher Kahdijah brought in Hornworms to share with the children. They made observations and many were very excited to touch them. They practiced gentle touching, to show respect for the creatures. The next day, Teacher Kahdijah brought in her family’s pet bearded dragon, George that some children had met before and others were so excited to see for the first time. They observed him carefully and made observations.
