Working together to load pumpkins into the wheelbarrow!
Digging up potatoes in the garden this morning was hard work! Digging up potatoes is like finding a little treasure!
Pluck seeds out of one of the giant sunflowers from our garden. It’s a fun fine motor activity!
We left our group time to go watch farmer Bill plow the field behind our playground. The children loved it when he waved at them!
Ms. Vogt brought us carrots for snack from her garden. They were tasty! At group, she showed the fat, dirty one and talked about how they grow underground.
Our beautiful playground and garden. The children last year planted these giant sunflowers in the spring!
New students came to visit the school for orientation this week. They looked around the school, and worked with the teachers. The children are very excited to start preschool. We look forward to seeing everyone next week!
These are the zinnias that the kids planted. We weren’t sure how they would grow since the seeds are so light-they blew right out of the children’s little hands and scattered everywhere (under the swings, in the grass, in the pumpkin patch). They look so beautiful!
The pumpkins the kids planted last spring are getting so big!
We read “Where the Wild Things Are” and had a wild last day of camp! During our hike, we found an inchworm swaying in the breeze and watched it climb up it’s invisible silk, and we played “What time is it, Mr. Fox?” We made our own Wild Things nature crowns, and ended the day by creating a 10-gallon mud puddle to jump in! The kids had so much fun rolling around in the mud and being wild. Thanks to all the children and parents who participated this week, enjoy the rest of your summer!
