Today was parents’ observation day at High Five Kids, most of the parents were able to come and we had an opportunity to show what we have been learning and doing recently. The Panda/ Penguin class have been doing a few projects focusing on observing and recording, so having the parents there today observing us fit in with what we have been learning. Since the beginning of the school year we have been recording the weather at 10:00 am every class day, and recording it on our calendar. At the end of each month we take the information we have recorded and transfer it onto a chart, throughout the year we can refer to this chart and compare the weather of different months. We also have been germinating mung beans in the classroom, the students observe the beans and record the growth by drawing pictures of the different stages as they grow. The beans are currently in the sprouting stage with the first leaves showing. We have been discussing pollination and the different parts of plants as we experience the growing first hand. We are also working on our Father’s day gifts and cards but I will not be posting photos until later.
