|Quacking along the trail.|
Today at snack time the blue group heard the story Make Way for Ducklings" by Robert McCloskey. They so enjoyed the story that we spent the rest of the hike pretending to be baby ducks and walking (and running) in a line. Each of the kids picked a "duck name" , some from the story and some from their imaginations: Pack (Noah), Quack (Nina), Jack (Ruby), Snack (Isaac), Short Sleeve and Shorts Duck (Tyler), Snack 2 (Nicholas) and Mr. Mallard (Henry) and Mama Duck (Teacher Jen). Quack!
|Measuring the depth of the water.|
Then we found some amazing mud and water in a flooded area north of the meadow. Maya carefully checked the water depth to see if it was too deep to walk in. We are careful not to let the mud go over our Bogg boots! It was a little spooky in the woods there with all of that water and lots of high weeds and plants. Some kids were a little scared at first-but then it became a big adventure!
|Observing sprouted beans.|
PS: I hope the 31st of May is on your calendar! Picnic-arrive at 10am and stay till 1230pm. The kids will show you around the park, sing for you and then we'll all eat lunch together. Bring your own lunch please!
PSS: There are still a few spaces in the Tiny Treks Preschool camp that I am leading in June.
Please join us! Also-there are drop off camps for 4-7 year olds that I will be leading this summer.
