Good Morning! Ms. Annie and Ms. Erika are happy to see everyone! Ms. Erika started with the story and song, Old McDonald. Our friends joined Ms. Erika as she sang the song of the animal sounds.

Ms. Annie showed our friends the farm she made out of a sheet pan, farm animals, small containers to for a pond and a feeding station for the cows. You can add hay, rocks, and dirt. You can make this at home for your child to explore and play with. The children named the animals and joined her as they made the animal sounds. Next, Ms. Annie showed the children the farm animals and their young. You can make a printout of farm animals and their young by clicking here.

We were happy to see our friends today! Ms. Jen's lesson today is about invertebrates. What is an invertebrate? Ms. Jen talked about the characteristics of invertebrates. So far we've learned that vertebrates have backbones. Invertebrates do not have a backbone. Most invertebrates have a protective covering or an exoskeleton. Ms. Jen showed pictures of invertebrates like a crab, a beetle, a jellyfish, a snail, an earthworm. In your garden you will find lots of invertebrates. See if you can find one. But remember to be respectful to them. Just watch and don't take them out of their homes. They're living things just like us!

Ms. Jen read the book, Barnacle is Bored, by Jonathan Fenske. You can check out the book on the Scholastic Press website.  

Ms. Jen made a fun art today using a straw, paper, and diluted paint. She made a butterfly with the wings made out of blowing paint on it. Have fun!

Ms. Jen made a fun ladybug food art. You will need a red apple, raisins, peanut butter or any spread you want to use, and a grape. Construct your ladybug and have fun eating!
