A Leopard at the watering hole

Have you heard your child talk about the elephants at the watering hole?  Or the Giraffes?  Maybe even the Lions or Leopards that we have seen running through Africa.

Taking a long drink!

For the last week and a half, we have begun our day visiting Naledi, Nkorho, Olifants River and Tembe in Africa. 

We visit these places using  Africam is a LIVE 24X7 virtual African Safari.  We can view animals in their Natural habitats. 

We all look forward to it everyday! These pictures are some of the animals we have seen.  We also have seen groups of warthogs running and playing or birds flying around or just sitting in their nests. 

If you can, take a look at it with your child!

We love to be outside in our beautiful play yard.  You can find us running, jumping, climbing and playing with our friends!
The opportunity to play and explore is just as important as what we learn in the classroom!
With just a few more schools days left, we are still continuing to learn new things!  With Mrs. Zwilling this week, we talked about what gets energy from the sun.  We explored our yard to thing of some things that may need sunshine.  Some ideas were : us, trees, the garden, birds, and squirrels. 
We also talked about how the sun made us feel: hot, sweaty, thirsty to name few.  We took several items (tennis ball, a piece, of chocolate, an ice cube, butter, legos and some beads) and placed them in a muffin tin.  The tin was placed in the hot sun for a bit.  While it was in the sun, we predicted what may melt and what may not.  After some time, we checked in on our items.  The Sun had melted the butter, the iced cube and the chocolate. 
We will be having a pizza lunch on the last day of school.  (Wednesday, June 6th)  please return your form ASAP.  If you are a half day student and will be staying for lunch please let me know that as well. Pick up will be 12:30 that day for half dayers that are leaving.

 Just a reminder, HCA will be closed Friday, May 25th and Monday, May 28th in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Mrs. Devenney
