We had an exciting field trip planned today to the park to pick up trash to celebrate earth day . After working hard Mia’s grandmother was going to treat us to Subway kids meals complete with the milk ! And.. she was going to deliver. That.. is what I call service in her busiest time of day. After getting up with the rain this morning and some one had turned the COLD back on outide, I decided I would prefer to reschedule for a day that we can actually enjoy the park. Thankfully, Joni is letting us do a raincheck for Monday. She said she is also providing a y parents meals that want to go. I asked her was she sure because we didnt want to take advantage and she said yes! So, if you are up to walking around town a bit with us and hanging out at the park, Monday we will leave the house at 10:00 am , you can join us. No extra children though , please.
Since we were all excited about Subway today we decided to jazz our lunch up a little today. Our boring sandwiches went over fairly well disguised as a birdhouse.
We finished our footprint art from yesterday and turned our feet into robins. So cute!
Katelyn was excited about our new puppet – the eagle. I saw her at CherryBerry last night and told her I had bought one. It is very cool. ( On a side note, I do have a slight puppet addiction This one will add to my already HUGE collection. )
Today we looked at two video clips that the kids found amazing. the first one was a bird hatching from it’s shell. ( a robin )
The second clip was another bird. We just set it on a ledge and let it run during lunch it was a little long. I had the kids guessing what kind of bird it was. At first there was a lot of ” crow” and ” robin” answers. Then has the bird was out more I heard ” pelican” and ” ostrich”. Pretty good reasoning skills I think. They noticed that his neck was longer. It is a turkey.
We have had a very busy week . We have had inspections out the wazoo ( is that a real word?) and Randy has been working feverishly on our new CD. We both have had a lot of late nights and busy days. In celebration of survival we are enjoying an pretty umbrella drink with the kids today. ( It is grape juice – Baptist wine- and not an umbrella but a flamingo . but hey, it is bird week. )
Y’all have a fabulous weekend and we will see you on Monday .Next week is Arkansas Children’s Week !
Oh ~! Teacher fail moment….
Remember those nest we made with glue ? The glue is REALLY watered down now Remember the plants the were our science experiment – one gets water and one doesn’t ? They both did. I didnt know it was supposed to rain. :/
