Update from the Butterfly Class (excerpt, ECDC newsletter)

P1000453

The Butterflies have been quite busy over these past few weeks. We've enjoyed making our own puppets out of wooden spoons, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, feathers and much more. We welcomed puppeteer Becky Becker into our classroom for a workshop on how to use them. She was fantastic and had all the children captivated!

We've also been on two different field trips recently, the first to Wannamaker Park. The children explored the lagoon, ran up and down a HUGE hill, and had a blast on the fun playground there. We set out for Kiawah Island this past Friday, toughing out the chilly weather to do some exploring. The children found interesting shells, creatures, and plants and got a brief lesson on how the food chain works. Ask them to show you how clams eat their food!

It's hard to believe that it is almost Thanksgiving! Of course, for us, that means we are gearing up for the annual Thanksgiving feast. Our kids will be helping to cook some of the food in preparation for the meal. We wish you all a great holiday and look forward to being back on the 28th!
