We have had fun this week creating our Classroom Amazon Rainforest. The children have completed the Forest Floor Layer and the Understory Layer. We are currently working on the Canopy Layer. Some of the animals in our rainforest include: ants, jaguars, tarantulas, tapirs, anteaters, snakes, and red eyed tree frogs. We have also had lessons on landmarks in South America and we created Apple Pop Art.

Spring is here!!! We are ready to enjoy it and learn. This month we are going to learn about the continent of South America, reptiles, amphibians, and the artist Andy Warhol. This week the students learned about the characteristics of reptiles, types, and answered questions about them. We introduced the continent of South America and identified the names of the countries that make up the puzzle map. We began our classroom project creating a diorama about the first layer of the Amazon rainforest, "Forest floor".

This has been an eventful week!
We have been having fun learning about Asia, especially the countries of Japan and India. The children had lessons on the culture of each country and the flags. In Science, they had lessons on the parts of the chicken and the life cycle of the chicken. Wednesday was a short day, however we managed to get a lesson in about the hummingbird and made a cute necklace for St. Patrick's Day. We hope everyone has a safe and fun Spring Break Week!!!

We had lessons on the parts and the characteristics of a bird, the continent puzzle of Asia: naming the countries, and animals that live in Asia. We ended the week with a fun parade celebrating Read Across America Day! The children had fun watching the older children in their costumes. We finished the day with popsicles.
