We made new friends on the playground today!

While playing outside, we found a large praying mantis had come to visit.  He walked around on Stormi’s hand and climbed all the way to her shoulder.  The children loved seeing him up close.  After letting him climb into the tree, we came inside and learned more about them in the classroom.

One of our students discovered another friend on our playground when he came to school.  The deer was enjoying our animal feeding station.  Look at that smile!

We went for a nature walk in our woods to see what other creatures we could see.  It will be fun to see how things outside change as we enter into the Fall season.
