Swim Lessons

Our brave swimmers completed their first swimming lesson today! Kindergarteners are going to be gaining confidence through their weekly swim lessons and helpful swim coaches. Students set swimming goals and participated in their lesson with brave and happy hearts. We can’t wait to see what they can do by the end of the four weeks!

Cheep, Chirp, Cheep!

Our young scientists were surprised and thrilled to discover baby chicks in our classroom on Tuesday morning. Kindergarteners marveled at the cute yellow fluffy feathers and their little bodies. They loved holding them and sharing their wonderful wonders. Over the next several weeks, students will investigate the parts of an egg, the chicken life cycle, and how to care for baby chicks! Stay tuned for more egg-cellent news!

Farm Life

On Wednesday, your Kindergartener got the opportunity to travel to Legare Farms to learn and discover wonderful facts about chickens and eggs. Your farm experts learned the difference between a rooster and a hen, how many eggs chickens lay in a week, the difference between farm chickens and chickens raised for food that go to the grocery store,
and that chicken eggs do come in all different colors, even navy blue!! Kindergarteners met Violet and Henry (the pigs), saw piglets running around the farm, and met a huge white rabbit named Cottontail. Your chick enthusiast then participated in an egg hunt, had lunch among their friends surrounded by huge oak trees and lots of caterpillars, and then finally played on the playground. Ask your Kindergartener what their favorite part of the farm trip was.
