We listened to a recording of the sound the insect made. Many students had heard the sound before. One friend shared she had heard it the night before when she was eating dinner outside. We realized we had all heard the sound in the summer, usually at night time, and when we were outside, like camping.
We learned the bug was called a cicada! Friends had many wonders about these so we did more research. We found out it can take 17 years for a cicadas eggs to hatch. We counted to see how old we would be in 17 years!
Our SKs have been talking a lot about Grade 1. It is fast approaching and they are so excited to be "big kids" :) They have been busy getting themselves ready....way to go!
The last day of school for students is Wednesday, June 29th.
PS No weekend plans? Why not head to the Turtles Spa for a playdough manicure.... :)
