I will make blog post a month too late about some exciting news before the end of May, but until then I would like to just do a big photo dump of things that had happened in the classroom!

We spent April and May exploring community helpers. Who are community helpers, real and make believe, and how we can be community helpers.
We celebrated by having a Superhero day!

We also enjoyed learning about spring animals and the changes that come with the new season.
|Using upcycled materials with Edmonton's Reuse center to make binoculars|
|White glue. We then added food colouring to make pictures|
|Printing with nuts and bolts|
|Enjoying shaving cream|
|Meeting a police officer|
|Upcycled Mother's Day crafts|
We had so much fun with our Nature Center. There we could find feathers, seeds, plants, coral, rocks, petrified wood and pussy willows. We could observe the differences between insects (butterflies) and arachnids (tarantulas), as well as the difference between crawling and flying.
