We were so excited to enjoy the sunshine this week!
When children play outdoors, the following are strengthened:

-Vestibular Integration- this is the system of our bodies that affect inner ear and brain function (balance)

Mr. Hartsock brought his bike to school this week.  He was excited to share bike safety and how the bike works with us.  He showed us how the gears and brakes work, how to put air in the tires and where he stores his water bottles.




Our weekly Reader this week taught us about baby animals.  We learned that baby animals are usually born in the Spring.  Many babies do not know how to do things that big kids, like themselves, know how to do so they have to learn.

We used our baby pictures that were sent in to draw ourselves as babies and a self portrait of present day.  Enjoy! 😊😊😊
