Five For The Final Friday In April!

It's the final Friday in April already which means that it's time to link up with Doodle Bugs for:

My older son, Derek, is a grad. student getting a degree in Public Administration.  On Tuesday night, he presented his capstone project at Suffolk University in Boston:



 He was one of six students who presented a project, and he did an amazing job!
 We started learning about mammals and birds.  The kids were quite fascinated and full of questions of how a mother's body makes milk to feed her babies. 


 Speaking of bears, we read the most adorable and interesting book last week:

This award-winning and beautifully illustrated book by Lindsay Mattick tells the story of Winnipeg the Bear - who was a girl and eventually became the real Winnie.  Click here to read more on Amazon.

We had another fun visit from Change Is Simple who played a life-size review game with the kids:


Of course, things got too competitive and loud so we needed an emergency class meeting after this, but hopefully, the kids learned something.
We finished another round of centers:

The kids enjoyed the variety of activities which included onomatopeia task cards; Earth Day work work; find the correct flower based on the clues; a multiplication game; and The Emperor's Egg in the Listening Center.  We do each center for two days - even the Listening Center!  It makes life so much easier!

Have a wonderful spring weekend!
