Another Masterpiece!










The Ladybugs have been learning about famous artists this week.  One that we particularly enjoyed was Jackson Pollack.  The weather cooperated and we made our own masterpiece!

Burke Museum












The Ladybug and Bumblebee classes had a phenomenal visit to the Burke Museum at the University of Washington this week.  The Burke Museum has an outstanding exhibit on dinosaurs that is hands on and interactive.  The kids loved every minute of it!

Spring!






It's definitely spring in the Ladybug room!  We're busy working on writing our hardcover books, painting flowers, releasing our butterflies (Emma, George, Alison, Max and Madalyn), and learning about coral reefs.  If you haven't had a chance to visit the classroom lately, stop and see us!

Minus Tide


Minus tide at Dumas Bay Sanctuary,
there were treasures every where we looked!

We found moon snails and lots of examples of things
we had been learning about.
There were literally 100's of live sand dollars
and dozens of sea anemones. 


We have the perfect spot to explore a minus tide near school.  We packed up our boots and the hit the beach for a minus 3 foot tide.  We explored the shoreline and found all sorts of things that we had been learning about.  The kids found snails, shells, moon snails and hundreds of sand dollars. A seal even kept an eye on us from just off the shore.

Sunny days!

All we are missing on this scavenger hunt is
sunglasses.
We went on the search for signs of spring
armed with a clipboard and a magnifying glass.
Mentor challenge:  design a road for a hexbug that
includes a bridge to go over or under.

This is how we learn French at Seabury, whole child learning
at its best.
Lunch at the fountain on a beautiful day.
New mentor challenge:  build a marble run that includes elevation,
a curve and ends in a container to catch the marbles.
It's been a full week for the Ladybugs! STEM challenges, theater visit, scavenger hunt and camels, rhinos and naked mole rats.  Don't you wish you were a Ladybug?

Busy times in the Ladybugs!

One of our older Seabury students (who used to be
a Ladybug) put together a powerpoint on animals in Zimbabwe.
He did an excellent job of telling the Ladybugs about his observations
of these fascinating animals.


It takes this many kids to be as long as a crocodile!
This week's challenge: using craft sticks,
binder clips and clothespins; build a structure to
support weight.



We had some amazing structures.
With the promise of sun in the forecast, we planted seeds
on Friday afternoon!




It's a wrap!
