Spring has sprung in our class room and it was time to change our bulletin board to a beautiful spring time pond scene! The kids have been busy making fun spring inspired crafts to decorate our board and learning all about life in a pond too!
At the Pond
At the pond on a lazy day,
Fishing and boating, you’re invited to stay.
Waddle like a duck, hop with the frogs,
Create a turtle, sunning on a log.
Use binoculars to take in the sights,
Spy a fish, or a dragon fly in flight.
At the pond the adventure will begin,
So turn on your imagination, and join right in!
Down at the Pond
(to the tune Down By the Station)
Down at the pond where the water lilies grow,
There are lots of animals swimming to and fro.
They dive and splash; of water they’re fond.
You can see the [swans] play happily all day
Down at the pond.
Continue and add other pond animals into the song!
The completed board. This was so much fun to put together as I found more pond related crafts to add on to it.
We made these lily pads out of the little paper plates and a coffee filter that was colored with a pink marker then sprinkled with water. Then after it was dry, I gathered the filter and pinched it in the middle before gluing it to the center of the lily pad.
I LOVE this swan craft! It is so easy and turns out so beautiful!
This is our gorgeous Japanese Cherry Blossom tree that Miss Courtney made for the board! It added the perfect pop of pink! And you can see that our little turtles are sunning themselves on the bank of the pond too.
And our adorable foot print robins perched in our oak tree!
