Rainforests and Farms

Legare Farm

On Monday our Kindergarten scholars took a field trip to Legare Farms. Our Scholars were excited to finish up our chicks unit with this special trip. Scholars got to learn new facts about chicks from our instructor who also showed us all the different types of eggs. Kindergartners even got the opportunity to pet the rabbit. The farm was filled with pigs, cows, water buffaloes and goats. Our scholars got to play on the farm themed playground and enjoy lunch. Finally we got to  participate in an easter egg hunt. Ask your scholar what their favorite part of the trip was!


Wrapping-Up Swim Lessons

Our brave swimmers completed their last swimming lesson today! Kindergarteners have gained confidence through their weekly swim lessons and their helpful swim coaches. Students set swimming goals and participated in their lessons with brave and happy hearts. Kindergarteners are grateful for their swimming lessons!


It’s Green! It’s Humid! It’s a Rainforest!

Kindergartners have been enjoying our new rainforest study. This week we investigated to find out, “What is a rainforest?” Students practiced locating rainforests around the world using our color-coded biome map. Young conservationists found ways that they can live in harmony with nature, in efforts to save our rainforests. Students shared the different types of animals throughout the jungle. Kindergartners also watched videos of different types of trees in the rainforest. Ask your young scientist what they learned about the rainforest this week!
