Tea of the week: Lemon
This week we had so much fun exploring the world we live in. I bet you have heard your child share that there are 7 continents in our world. This 7 Continents songwas a bit of an obsession this week. We intertwined some of our social studies (geography) and science (weather) with a story called Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain. This story allowed us to explore the continent of Africa and the country Kenya, within it. We also discussed what drought means and how that can impact living things. Mrs. Auctor was able to offer us an extra art class on Tuesday. We painted sticks inspired by the story we read and how Ki-pat uses sticks in a few different ways.
This week was filled with many special events! Buddy Dubay came for his last visit. His music is always so enjoyable and uplifting! We were lucky to have him come to UCS several times this year!
Then on Friday, we had a visit from an MMU advisory group, it was MMU's day of service in the community. We were fortunate that we were asked if this group could come to visit with us! We took a hike in the woods and then settled in the wooded outdoor classroom at our favorite tree spots. We took turns reading and being read to by the MMU students. Later they joined us for lunch and recess! Friendships were made that were cherished by the kindergartners.
