As we finish up our BUG unit the children reflected on this months¬†theme from Mother Goose Time. ¬†Mother Goose Time provides us with a new themed kit each month filled with activities, manipulatives, stories, music… and lesson plans offering ideas for using such materials. Although some instruction was offered for individuals and small groups, this month was more student led. ¬†Observations showed that the best learning experiences happened when I stopped bugging them ūüėČ discoveries were made through student curiosities and not through adult instruction. Our multi-age peer groups problem solved and work together while exploring all subject matters using BUGS and other spring topics.

Spring provides ample opportunities to learn through fun topics and learn outdoors.  All subject matters were covered but there was an overall focus on science this month.  Physical science exploring textures and using our senses outdoors. Life science discovering how things grow and change.  Earth science observations of the weather and how it affects the textures, senses and wildlife.  Even the baby was curious about the world around her.  Infants thru pre teens all seemed to enjoy spring at Adventure Academy.  They learned and played and explored and took pictures of their explorations.  The pics featured in this article were taken by 8-11 year old students Рshowcasing their science discoveries, Mother Goose Time curriculum and peer observations!
