What a great week we had...a wonderful field trip, Spring Concert, and much more.
Children had a wonderful field trip lead by the Buzzard's Bay Coalition. This year, children went to the Floral Pierce Nature Trails located in New Bedford. The trails are open to the public so feel free to explore as a family. The children learned about moss, fiddlehead (ferns), different creatures that live in a vernal pool, searched for tadpole and salamander eggs, and even found some hatched salamanders that were under tree logs.
At the vernal pool, the children netted to see what they could discover. Take a look at these pictures to see some of their catches.
*Other things we've been up to....
* Working on independent studies. Children are finishing up their research and KWL charts and beginning to plan for and create a way to present what they learned to others. Most children chose to create a poster.
*Ms. Lord's Middle School Advocacy Group visited with 2nd grade to continue our conversations about Global Citizenship
*Math - Multiplication by 3 and 4 - And using dot paper to help with multiplication
*Rehearsals for the Spring Concert - The children did such a wonderful job. We are so proud of them.
