Sapphire Room Celebrates Earth Day

imagesWe had a special guest, Amanda, from BG Recycling Center teach us all about Recycling, Reusing, and Reducing!

The children learned what litter is and who is responsible for it.

What litter or trash can be recycled?

Many items can be recycled and reused as something else. Who knew that carpet can made of recycled cans!

Following our study of nutrition, the children can now toast their own bread in the classroom. Such independence they feel in selecting the bread and placing it in the toaster with the toaster tongs. Such pride they experience in being able to operate the toaster all by themselves. They can then enjoy it after spreading on the butter. This “work” is not over until they have washed all the items used during this process. We love the smell of toasted cinnamon bread wafting through our classroom!

The children were delighted to be outside with no coats on today. They enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and our big field – running, playing and picking dandelions.

It’s fun to just run.

Walking on a line helps the child to develop coordination, balance, muscular control and body awareness. Here the child is walking while also carrying a bell. She is trying to keep the bell silent!
