We continued our study of Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes with a focus on the Three Little Pigs and Project Lead the Way's connected STEM lesson this week. After sharing and retelling the story, TK engineered houses made of "straw" (toothpicks), sticks, and bricks. The following day the "big bad wolf" (a blower) came in to test the structures. Amazingly, they ALL held. We have some terrific engineers in this class!
In other big news, our incubator is set up with a dozen eggs in side. We will wait patiently for 21 days until our chicks hatch. We can't wait!!
The apex of our unit was our field trip to Fairy Tale Town. Riding on the bus was exciting! We picnicked in the park, watched a funny puppet show telling the stories of The Tortoise and the Hare and The Three Billy Goats Gruff and then played all over the park. It was a wonderful day together.
I came back from our field trip today to this heartwarming welcome. THANK YOU to all the "leprechauns" who worked so hard to make me and all our STAR teachers feel so appreciated. From an amazing breakfast, to sweet notes and gifts, to this beautiful display, thank you for making my day and my week. My heart is full 💕
