The Toddlers Were Busy While I Was on Vacation!

Ms. Lu Ann and Ms. Allison took some wonderful pictures for me while I was away.
There are a few pictures from before my vacation and after.

She is grouping her animals into families. You can see she has the tiger family,
rhino family and is playing with the gorilla family. Beginning math at its best!

She has her thinking cap on! Notice how well she is holding the crayon.

Not sure what she is telling us, but she has a real butterfly in front of her.
inside the clear plastic square. Several of them were placed on the table
to use as a reference for their coloring. 

As all great scientists and artists do. They take time to study their subjects.

The children went outside with these butterflies. They were all
a different color. The children were given the task to find
butterflies that matched the color of the paper butterflies.

Three beautiful ladies with three beautiful hats!
We used ribbons to dance to music. We danced to a variety of music, but
especially to 'Madam Butterfly' and 'Flight of the Bumblebees'

These two girls are capturing bugs!
Don't worry they are not real!

He caught a big one! Wow!

Before we started our bug lesson we finished up our opposites lesson.
The children are feeling warm and cold water.
She has her hands in both the warm and cold bins!

After I got back from vacation we has Raptor Inc. come visit.
She is showing everyone a Paragon falcon. We have seen one of these
flying and walking around the school. They typically are found
in the city on the tall buildings.

Here is a great horned owl. Some of the toddlers were afraid of
his serious stare!
We got to hear bird callings from this neat sound machine.

After seeing the American Kestrel, the children could touch
a stuffed kestrel.

Here is the living one! This is the bird we adopted back
in the spring when the school voted on what bird to adopt.
