We have been quite busy in the Primary class. It's hard to believe that we have less than a month of school left!
We had a lovely visit from Ms. Julie, who shared her cello with us. We learned about the parts of the cello and loved listening to music played fast and slow as well as silly things that the cello can do, such as sound like a cow! After listening, we were each able to try plucking the strings on a Primary child-sized cello.
A few weeks ago, we planted a wide variety of seeds that we had been given by Harry's Farmer's Market last fall. We planted beans, corn, pumpkins, tomatoes, sage, peas, thyme and sunflowers. It's been amazing to actually see our seeds sprout and the seedlings emerge from the soil! We're hoping to see that they produce veggies this summer/fall, too!
And below, you'll see that the peas that Ms. Julie planted with the children are growing quickly! We have tied some yarn for the peas to climb so that hopefully, our bamboo teepee will be a lovely place of shade later this summer.
And, of course, we have been quite busy in the Primary casa receiving new lessons, working with favorite materials and bringing our work outside.
