Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...

This week we've talked about things people can do to help reduce the amount of garbage we make. We also talked about the damage so much garbage can do to the earth and the animals that live here. A few years back we had a visitor who spoke with the kids about Reducing, Reusing and Recycling. She brought some wonderful things that were made from reusing other materials. Take a look, you'll be just as surprised as we were...

We Love Shaving Cream

We have been working hard on learning sight words, word families, numeral writing, drawing and more. It's fun to do this on paper, but it's even MORE fun to do it in shaving cream!! Take a look at how we practiced our skills (and cleaned our tables of old dried-up glue gunk at that same time!) ;-)

Do you play in shaving cream too?

Artist in the Making... artist MADE!!....Take a look at the BEAUTIFUL bird Viktoria painted. She is enrolled in an art class outside of school and asked her instructor if she could paint a bird. Remember, we were learning about birds and how to draw them a few weeks ago? Apparently, this made an impression on Viktoria and she wanted to make more! ;-)
 WOW!!! Can you believe she painted this? I understand she had a little help from her art teacher....but this is AMAZING don't you think? Way to go!!

Sea Life Unit...the Beginning...
