Back to School

Our first day of school was a huge success! We enjoyed getting to know a little bit about each of our students while establishing the rituals and routines of our classroom. We also enjoyed a fun assembly featuring "The Bug Chef". We watched as he cooked with bugs. Many students were called up to help prepare the food and some even got to taste it! He made fried meal worms, stir fry scorpions, and grilled grasshoppers. From the looks of the students faces that got to try the cooked bugs, they didn't seem to bad :).
