Here is a slide show of the bird feeder installation. What a perfect day for outdoor work! Thank you to Mr. DeWitte for doing all the work, and explaining to our campers the proper use of the tools.
Now we just have to wait for the birdies to discover the wonderful buildings we have created for them!
Finally, Spring has sprung. It feels so good to get some fresh air! Our campers have returned from the Spring break full of energy and ready to take on new challenges. This week we have started working on learning how to say the time in Spanish to the nearest 5 minutes, using both analog and digital clock, and we have started the pen pal letters to our friends in Srta. Hernandez's class in Memorial School. We have also had the visit of a very special Mystery Reader, our very own Curriculum Director Dr. Cohen! And we will celebrate Arbor Day today (pictures coming up next week).
Here are the few pictures I took this week.
Enjoy the weekend!
This week I want to say a big GRACIAS to the parent volunteers that have come to Nature Camp to play Math games with our campers, or have organized this event, and to the parent helping with our reading centers. We enjoy your participation and that you can get a chance to get involved in our daily camp routines. Also, to the two parents that are regularly cutting up and assembling booklets and other reading and math materials for us, I want to say "your help is huge to me!, Thank you so much!".
I love the involvement and generous heart of this community, and I am looking forward to give you more opportunities to volunteer! If you are interested, check out the wejoinin pages on the "camp volunteers" section on the top menu.
I feel very grateful for your help.
