News Letter

July 2011 Space and Camping Donna-sensei’s Newsletter


June was filled with fun and exciting discoveries! Children learned many interesting facts about bugs and plants and we can definitely say we are now insect experts! K3 students were able to name more than 20 bugs and were able to make sentences like “Ladybugs eat aphids.” “Caterpillar changes into a butterfly.” They were able to identify the parts of a plant too! K4 students are just amazing. They grasped the concept very well and were saying sentences like “Centipede is not an insect because insects have 6 legs.” “Dragonflies live near water and they eat mosquitoes!” “Honeybees can only sting one time because they leave their stinger inside your body!”
