Watched the new kids interact with each other and nature outside today. It really enforced how much they are finding their insect science unit exhilarating. They were catching grasshoppers and a praying mantis to show the teacher and each other.
As much as it creeped me out when they hopped in our direction, I really admired their gall and accuracy. It wasn't the best day for many folks, but after a series of various events, I wanted to think of what else I could do to give back.
I settled on trying to make a bug hunt scrapbook of sorts for the kids to show off their finds. After quick shopping after school, I didn't find what I wanted so went with the quick and simple route. Got a binder, made a title page, found and typed up questionnaire about insects, and added pages for the kids to paste pictures or illustrate. I hope it's useful.
Not what I originally envisioned, but that's okay because it's done and ready to go tomorrow. Not only is it pay day, but the beginning of a long weekend! Woohoo!
