In the Life of a Firefly
A Few Highlights from our Early Childhood Fireflies Classroom
Written by Nancy Johnson, Early Childhood Fireflies Lead Teacher
The Fireflies going on a walk around campus with their listening ears!
Busy Bees, Lady Bugs, Butterflies, Dragonflies, and Fireflies. Each of our Early Childhood classes comes with a cute name and each classroom with adorable students.
Our Fireflies class has our 2.5 - 3 year olds, and between walks around campus every day and Ms. Nancy's creative lessons, these young explorers are always learning and discovering.
"During the month of October we made our own witch hats and explored the inside of a pumpkin. We used our five senses to investigate several Halloween themed sensory tables; our favorite was a gooey worm themed sensory table (paint and cooked pasta). Our class has been using tongs and tweezers to strengthen our pincher grip."
"This week (Nov. 6-9) our class has been busy working on Thanksgiving Day themed art. This week we made Native American rain sticks out of recycled toilet paper rolls (how resources!) and listened to the story ‘Brother Eagle and Sister Sky’. We explored the inside of a teepee. In honor of Veterans’ Day we made our own Poppy Flowers. Next week our class will be listening to the story ‘Stone Soup’ and making our own version of 'stone soup.'"
