Animal House PreschoolDay Care in Medford, Oregon
We had so much fun with our moose week and learned lots too. We pretended we were Bull Moose with our four feet wide, fifty pound antlers. We compared track sizes and found that despite a moose weighing more than our whole class combined, most of us had bigger feet than him. Nature is weird and wonderful.
Six little friends were very keen to help in the garden this week, pulling weeds and turning the soil. We added nutrients and planted some pumpkin seeds ready for spring. We had great success with our pumpkins in 2017 and saved some seeds. We can’t wait to see how big they grow this year.
January usually brings us snow so the children have been a bit disappointed so far this year. We compensated by learning about animals who live in the snow and brought some smiles back to their faces. Polar bears and penguins are always their favorites. We’ve now added a new favorite, the moose.
