Weeks of April 9
We finished up our last section of our Body unit talking about nutrition and exercise. The Books we read were Using My Plate, Fuel My Body, What’s on My Plate, ABC Yoga, and My Dad is a Pretzel. We learned about the 5 different food groups: Vegetables, fruits, grains, protein, and dairy. We learned what types of food belong to which group and how our plate at meal time should have something from each food group in order to have a well-balanced diet. We made individual food collages with pictures of some of our favorite foods as well as a group “My Plate” collage where we sorted foods into the appropriate group.
We also talked about the importance of exercise to keep us healthy. We read some books about yoga and had a really fun time trying to do the yoga moves! It’s amazing how flexible so of the Owls are! And everyone tried their best even though it was hard.
We also enjoyed Hugh Hanley on Friday as well as another Mystery Reader. Kylie’s cousins Gigi and Aliya came in to read us a story. Mystery reader has been a huge hit! We look forward to having more after vacation.
We celebrated out April birthdays on Friday as well. Thank you to Cail, Emily and Caleb for providing the delicious snacks and drinks. We really enjoyed it!
Owl Breakfast invitations as well as conference schedules went home on Friday. The invitation is an Owl shape with colorful wings. Please look out for it and let us know as soon as possible who your child’s special guest will be.
