Two amazing things happened this week.

Upon studying the letter C and starting our (worm) compost bin, the children began and continue to regularly feed the worms and add bedding material (shredded newspaper). As the rain brought slithering worms onto the playground pavement, one very delighted student carefully picked up one of those worms and gently placed it into our compost bin.  What a truly magical sight!

I showed the children various pictures of birds to launch our letter B this week, one of them replied, “I love birds.”  So, I told him that I went to the Cosumnes Wildlife area last weekend to hear and see hundreds of sand hill cranes fly in to roost (which I recorded on my phone).  I took out my phone for him to hear the recording and upon hearing the birds, he started jumping up and down in excitement.  I decided to share the recording with the rest of the class and this is what they did (see photo below) and this is what I heard and recorded…

B is for birds....TKs fly like birds!
