Finishing up Bug Week and Jumping into Sports

Last Friday we wrapped up Bug Week with talking about lighting bugs. We charted how many kids call them "lightning bugs" versus "fireflies". Then we made these adorable water-bottle lightning bugs that actually lit up! So cute!

This week, we've had fun exploring some sports. Yesterday we talked about football and made a 3D paper football - and then had some fun "tossin' around the pigskin!"

Today, as excitement is growing for my group of 5 year old girls' first softball game, we talked about softball and baseball. They each showed me their best practice swings, we did some coloring pages and we played with a baseball matching game!

The kids have been getting along so well and had a blast playing Ring Around the Rosie together this morning!
