The children didn't get to work in the garden last week, but hopefully, they will tomorrow. Meanwhile, some of the children have been interested in planning road trips with the help of our Highlights highway map of the U.S. Others have been exploring the properties of magnetic attraction between metals, other magnets and through objects. Yet others are excited about solving 4 X 4 KenKen puzzles.
Mrs. T. has taught the whole class a lovely song about global living. Each child has worked on flags representing the 24 countries in the song.
Today we talked about India; the foods, the Hindi language and its influence on our language, numerical system and culture. Then we shared a mango.
In the next few days we'll talk about some of the animals of India, try some of the clothes of India and hear about some of the customs of India.
