Spring is in full bloom, and the Primary children have been busy bees! Outside, gross motor skills are developing, throwing and catching balls, building and running through obstacle courses, and lots of running, climbing, and jumping. Inside, the children have really taken responsibility for cleaning their classroom at the end of the morning work period and setting up lunch, and at the end of the day before they go home. They love working together to scrub tables, sweep the floor, dust, put up chairs, and any other job that needs doing!
In May, we will be taking advantage of good weather days to do gardening and some outdoor work. We have been studying how seeds and acorns grow, watching the roots, shoots, and leaves develop, and we will continue plant study outside when we plant and care for flowers, herbs, and vegetables.
