Migration Science & Mystery

"Thank you for another fabulous week. The kids have been talking about it non-stop and cannot come up with anything negative about the program. When asked, they had trouble pinpointing their favorite thing about the experience. I usually make suggestions as each trip approaches. NCI is very good at enhancing our classroom curriculum."
-Mary Kay Lively, Hill Country Montessori
It’s the first real cold day of the fall and we have widespread frost on the grass – it looks gorgeous and the sun shining on it makes it sparkle and glitter. A just turned 3 year old, taps my arm and asks, “Ms. Deepa, did you see the snow? Did you see the snow? Did you see the snow?” Before I could say anything, an almost 5 year old responds. He bends down till he is at eye level with the younger one and says emphatically, “That is NOT snow, okay? That’s frosting.” The younger one brushes his forefinger on the grass, licks it and shakes his head, “That’s not frosting – it’s not sweet. It is snow.” And then goes over to another group to share the good news!
