outdoor newsletter week ending 2/9
Hi parents and grandparents,
welcome to the outdoor newsletter blog. Our program will be sending out newsletters on Weebly from now on so be sure to sign up. We had a great time this week working on our new unit of “ bobcats” the children asked great questions about these felines and had some interesting facts as well. Their project will be making a bobcat pattern and making a bobcat stuffy. The children traced a bobcat stencil then made a pattern on cloth. Miss molly brought in her sewing machine and the children started to sew their stuffed cats. They will all do hand sewing and adding details as the project progresses. We researched information on bobcats in books and on line watching documentaries on these elusive cats. Outside we had hot coco and snack and went sledding down the hill. The new snow is fantastic.
Next week we will be working on our bobcats and sledding as well. Please send your child in with a helmet. We only have one extra to share at school. Seems like we have enough sleds and the children are great about taking turns or going down together. Below are some pics of the week and hopefully the deer dance video.
happy outdoor exploring
