Last year during the cold winter months, Little Feet Runners Club was established at Upper Falls with the hopes of burning off some extra energy the kids accumulate from being stuck inside all day. Little did we know it would become popular site-wide, attracting kids from kindergarten to fifth grade. Because of it’s popularity, it has continued into this school year. Jesse tracks the distance each child runs with a large color-coded chart. The kids love seeing their progression displayed in the room and get so excited when they get to show their parents at pick up. They have taken such pride in this club so we want to share it with you!
Our annual talent show was last night, and we could not be more proud of everyone who participated! The acts were absolutely fabulous and wonderful to watch. Special shout out to Jesse and Glenn who once again made it all possible!
The months of April and May at CCC usually mark the beginning of “bug hunting season”. We just love bringing our bug containers, magnifying glasses, and critter habitats outside to see what we can find! We also love to use sticks, leaves, dirt, rocks etc. to create our own “bug hotels” or “bug houses” for the friends we come across. Check us out!
In the beginning of May, we purchased a butterfly kit so that we could get a front row seat to the amazing transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly! The kids really loved learning about the phases a caterpillar goes through and seeing the metamorphosis of a butterfly first hand. I think that the most exciting part of it all was setting them free : ) Here are some pictures Anthony got!
Spring finally decided to show up! The most exciting thing about that to a 6 year old is that bugs are suddenly everywhere. One of our favorite things to do this time of year is to make bug hotels for all of the cool insects we find on the playground. Check out these little entomologists!
