Creeping & Crawling

caterpillars crawlingCaterpillars in camouflage were attempting to stay hidden, but sharp eyes were on the lookout all week, searching them out.  Caterpillar houses were constructed so the caterpillars could “hide” when they were not being held or crawling all over arms and shirts.  The pool construction seems to be on hold, but games of tag and baseball were still being played. caterpillarwhere is the june bug?building a wallchillin'sandboxIMG_3782 (2)construction timecatch!where did the caterpillars go?pitching and catchingdigginglined up to head into the playgroundAt the art table everyone had a great time creating colorful patterns and shapes with perler beads.  The children very carefully placed the plastic cylinders onto the shaped bases, then the teachers ironed over the top to melt them together.  It was a very popular activity! perler beadsperler bead shapesIMG_5082IMG_5090 (2)IMG_5093 (2)Most of the children also finished up their books about themselves.  It was a lot of fun chatting with each of them and helping them think through what they wanted to include.

A few more dragons were added to the flock, and they continued to be popular companions while children were working.
