This week the kindergartners and first graders continued many projects, including exploring sunflowers. We looked closely at different sunflowers, created observational paintings, used tweezers to pick out seeds, and felt the different textures of the flowers. We even made sunflower seed butter, which everyone was welcome to try at snack time.
The K/1 classroom includes the out of doors. Despite the rainy weather, we walked to a nearby pond and enjoyed boat races with twigs and leaves in the stream that feeds the pond. We go out in many kinds of weather, properly dressed, of course!
