Mixing colors, testing brushes, blotting, stroking and lines. This is what Kathleen talked to us about today when she visited to help us with some painting techniques. The children had a blast coming up with their very own canvas creations.
We started with a white/blue sky and added colors for the sun. Then we added grass at the bottom, and then our imaginations could not hold back. Some of us created Easter bunnies, others tried trees. There was a semi-truck and some colorful designs. We definitely let our true colors show and flow through the brushes.
Thank you Kathleen Lagasse for visiting our class and teaching all about what you love to do. We will definitely never forget all the colors we mixed and fun we had today!

On Tuesday and Wednesday this week the Nursery School programs celebrated the Irish holiday- St.Patrick's Day. We had a scavenger hunt throughout the classroom, charted Lucky Charm marshmallows and played/sang 5 Little Shamrocks. The children were filled with Irish Luck when they found the pot of green gold in the sink!
I hope ever
We had a great visit to the recycling depot where we got to see the new recycling truck, the forklift, the recycling "baler" and the recycling kitty cat!
We learned about why we recycle and how they use these materials to make various items such as car parts, toy stuffing and jacket lining.
Did you know that the garbage truck used to run in Souris 5 days a week, and now that 98% of homes recycle they only require garbage pick up 3 1/2 days each week. :)
Thank you Kathy, Paul and Amy for accommodating our 4 very different groups.
We were very fortunate this morning to have a visit from Sam's baby chickens. We learned lots of new things about chickens such as;
- Some chickens can lay blue eggs, brown eggs, and PINK eggs- instead of the typical white we see in the store. All the colored eggs taste similar to a white egg and are just as healthy.
- Chicken poop is great for composting and using to help in the garden.
- Once the chickens are older they will begin to eat vegetable scraps such as carrot peels.
Some of us were brave enough to feel the soft feathers these baby chickens have, others were unsure about the quick moving little chicks. After a very thorough hand washing session we returned to the classroom to
