5-Day: Busy with Visitors and Visiting
This week has been a whirlwind of activities. 5-Day has had many visits from community helpers and gone to visit helpers in the community. We have had a cellist, a flautist, a dentist and doctor share what they do and how they do it. The librarian, Jean, gave us a tour and read some fun books. Great Harvest bakery showed us the ingredients that make up their bread--flour: water, honey, salt and stinky yeast. Then we saw the huge ovens and watched them rotate the types of bread through.
The children had many wonderful questions and comments. Here are a few:
Helena-"Some music makes me cry."
Iris-"The violin has an E string."
James-"What's a cavity?"
Nora-"When I went to the dentist, they blew up the hand glove!"
Andrew-"How are mutans (bacteria) alive?"
Catherine-"There's honey in the bread."
Antonia-"The top of the wheat was really sticky."
Jack-"The yeast was really stinky."
Evan-"I liked the smell of the bread."
Selah-"One flour was hard (wheatberries) and one was fluffy."
Aria-"Doctors help people feel better."
Declan-"Doctors check your heartbeat."
Eliza-"How does your heart get clogged?"
Theo-"Baby Beluga is an animal song."
Noah-"I want to be a detective and find clues."
Grace-"Veterinarians take care of pets. Paws get fixed, too."
David-"As a policeman, I will help people and chase bad guys away."
We had a great week!
