A podcast network featuring uncensored pop culture criticism and comics creation conversation. In light of the AudioShocker’s impending retirement, the kids at the Allegheny Teen Center have brainstormed a list of questions about art, comics, life, and other stuff.
If someone has an idea for a webcomic, can they make it up as they go along or do they need to write it all out first? Plus, we briefly the discuss the new audit Teen Center is undergoing in light of some troubling events that have occurred recently. On this episode, we contrast and compare Garfield in January 1984 to Garfield in January 2014. The art has evolved a bit with Garfield spending more time on his hind legs and doubling the size of his feet.
After the end theme, we read the latest Allegheny Teen Center announcement from Hank 300 (who wasn’t able to record this episode with us due to a catastrophic Super Bowl related internet crisis). The main character is Romona, an Arkseologist who’s working to fight back the expansion of the crystals while seeking to eradicate them completely. For years, Solomon Mars has created panel-to-panel comics that he shares online as Flash files. Since this episode was recorded a couple of weeks early, we’ve got a special update after the end theme… a conversation between Nick and Hank 300 recorded on location in Walla Walla, WA! If Nick, Hank, and Cecily make it out alive, then we’ll have a new podcast for you on Tue Jan 7 wherein we’ll discuss Battle Angel Alita v5 chapters 1-3. After a conversation about Ross’s earwax, we review the documentary Bones Brigade: An Autobiography and its behind-the-scenes companion, Bonus Brigade. In Bones Brigade, we follow the history of the infamous 80s skateboarding team of the same name through interviews and archival footage. At 42:00, we wrap up our Bones Brigade review and shift to comic news (which, of course, means means news about everything except comic books).
We also review a comic book review (meta!) by our buddy Kelly Thompson, who writes eloquently about a book we’ve never heard of called Marvel Knights: X-Men #2.
We really wanna review Iron Man 3 and give away a bunch of Iron Man comics, but the movie’s so damn expensive. Ross relives the development hell of Dead Tired, a pitch he worked on with Vertigo at DC Comics for years until he couldn’t recognize the story any more. Ross has had numerous misses with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, starting years ago at Mirage Studios up through last year when he was offered an opportunity to draw the main series at IDW.
Nick describes a few of his own rejected pitches for animated shorts over at Frederator Studios, including one you can read called The Demon From My Butt.
After that, Ross and Nick rant about annoying comic book news and try to figure out what the #$%& is going on with Scarlet Witch’s O-face.
After that, Ross and Nick rant about annoying comic book news and try to figure out what the #$%& is going on with Scarlet Witch’s O-face. After the announcement, Ross drops a quick update about his art for the next story arc of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Nick talks a bit about his new Nik Furious album, 7 Star Sky Flash Kick.
Then we tear apart Sleepwalker #25-33, the last nine horrendous issues of this oddball comic book series.
Finally, we try to hunt down some intriguing comic book news to talk about but struggle to find anything worth discussing.
Artists Kristi “Batz” Zerga and Dianna “Kitty” Spain are collecting the first three crazy issues of their Kitty & Batz comic book series into one twisted, brightly colored graphic novel called Hypnotic Homicide.
Artists Kristi “Batz” Zerga and Dianna “Kitty” Spain are collecting the first three crazy issues of their Kitty & Batz comic book series into one twisted, brightly colored graphic novel called Hypnotic Homicide.
Ross Campbell is hard at work drawing the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story arc and he delivers an ultra-brief update on his progress! Nick Marino wants to know: If Ross could go on a road trip to scenic Northhampton, Massachusetts with Leo, Donny, Mikey, and Raph… what would they do?!? After that we dig our discussion teeth into the meaty meatalicious juicy tasty extra-sized beef of the episode — Sleepwalker #9-16! On our last episode, we took a look at the rocky beginning of this early 90s alien superhero. Bob Budiansky and Bret Blevins are at their best in the four-part Color Blindness story arc featuring the naked technicolor supervillain, Spectra. Next: We say goodbye to Bret Blevins and hello to Kelly Krantz as the series begins to wane in Sleepwalker #17-24 (and the Holiday Special).
Hank describes the blossoming romance between Dino (#1 rez gangsta) and Carol (the new Granny), and the parental connection between Red Crow (living in a tipi) and Dash (deadbeat dad). While the end of Scalped defies many of our original expectations, it also reinforces the extreme violence and misogyny that consumed earlier volumes. In Between the Panels we take a look at artist Danijel Zezelj, who’s managed to best match Guera’s style out of any other contributing artist on Scalped. Finally, in Smoke Signals we look ahead to the future, asking questions like: Has Dino’s character arc fizzled out? After Kaylie McDougal confesses her hatred for Bill Murray and Nick Marino drops a shoutout to illustrator Summer Suzuki, we BARF up a storm with ALF s1 e23 and ALF s1 e24!
Next up, Kaylie and Nick talk about their respective reasons for why they hate getting haircuts. That transitions into a discussion about naming characters, which leads into Kaylie’s new comics project. After the end theme, we review (with SPOILERS!) The More They Stay Insane by Skipper Martin, Adam Huntley, Michael Spicer, and Thomas Mauer.
While Shawn works on the latest page of the Gello Apocalypse webcomic, he talks about life, love, comics, and more.
He also shares his thoughts about Ross Campbell‘s self-published graphic novel of Mountain Girl comics. After the end theme, Shawn gets deep and talks about the difficultly of juggling different comics while working a day job. Scott Hedlund joins Nick Marino to talk about comic book conventions, self-published comics, and prints.
Even though they began as comic book events, most large conventions are now expensive pop culture showcases for movies, TV, and established properties.
On the flip side, there are lots of local expos and fairs that favor crafts, zines, and artistic aesthetic over narrative comics. ALSO: Shoutout to Rob Harrington of Ginger Rabbit Studio for sharing his thoughts about prints and comics with Nick at last weekend’s Long Beach Comic Expo.
Shawn Atkins is joined by David DeVera, comics writer and indie publisher of the grindhouse graphic novel, Ninjabitch, through Diamondgoat Media.
Finally, the dudes give props to one of their favorite Pittsburgh comic artists and collaborators, Harold Cupec (creator of Pugnuggle Tales). Brandon shares about his background as a musician and how it’s informed the story of his ongoing series, Dedford Tales. Brandon also discusses his visit to Tokyo and the how it yielded fantastic photo ref for the fight scenes in the Manga Haters story.

It’s a panel-to-panel fantasy story set in the world of Ephon, a land overtaken by a crystal wasteland called the Nightmare Forest.
But he’s really stepped up the interactivity with Myth of Eustro, layering information about the story of Romona and the world of Ephon into roll-overs and clickable icons. While the film features a lot skaters, it focuses on a core lineup of Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, and Tommy Guerrero. We complain about the major comic book news sites, from the mainstreamy-est to the indie-est. And after the end theme, Justique talks about the time Nick tried to get her to enter a wet t-shirt contest.
He also talks about his Vertigo pitch for Swamp Things (yes, “Things”), which was rejected in favor of a China Mieville Swamp Thing comic book that never happened.

Decades after the invention of the first camera, a large number of consumers and shoppers continue to take pics, in a hgh tech fashion. Instead of the antiquated bulky cameras with huge lenses,consumers and shoppers frequently use SmartPhones and digital cameras to capture images and to take holiday pics. From family gatherings,to family picnics to traditional weddings to the holidays,consumers and shoppers often seize the opportunity at planned events and during the holidays for instance Thanksgiving and Christmas to take pictures of loved ones,family,friends and co workers. June 24-June 28 Ocean Explorer’s CampCome journey to the bottom of the sea as we explore the wonderful world of oceans and sea animals.Time Traveler’s Camp July 1-19July 1-5 A short stop in 1776 for America’s birthday. Since founding csaccac Inc in 2010, as Founder and President,I fill many hats including Product Tester and photographer. We will make American flags, have a parade, and celebrate America’s birthday with a delicious Apple Pie. Come one, come all and leta€™s get to the bottom of this crazy freaky phenomenon called creativity!!
And truthfully speaking,in the beginning I experienced some difficulty;however,after I purchased my first digital camera I began to feel comfortable and enjoy the ease of taking pics with a digital camera.
The children will dress up like the Statue of Liberty for our infamous Statue of Liberty photos.
Months after I purchased my first digital camera,I set my sights on a tripod, a universal stand to hold my digital camera. Our Statue of Liberty photos are so good one of the children’s  photos made it all the way to the office of a Supreme court judge. The main reason I purchased a tripod__ at the time, I wanted to create high quality self pics and group pics.
Eventhough, I've had my tripod for some months,I am still learning the ins and outs of both my digital camera and tripod.
July 22 - August 5 Science Explorer’s Camp We will enter the fascinating world of insects and go inside the human body. Well,if you havent guessed or envisioned what the featured product for the month of November 2013 looks like or remotely even resembles __then as productor tester I guess I'll do the honors first__it's my tripod.
A summer full of fun and imagination.   June 24-28, 2013This week the magic school bus stopped at it’s first destination, under the sea, to explore the ocean’s coral reefs and tidal zones. We, Ocean Explorers, were along for the ride and what an adventure we had discovering the ocean and it’s many wonders. Eventually, I wanted to find out what the craze had been all about and the reason that consumers seemed to ofA  been trading in personal computers for Tablets,_well, at least leaving them at home. Ultimately, I placed online an order for a NookHD+ then opt to pick up the tech item from the store instead of waiting for it to be shipped to my place of residency. You can’t be an ocean explorer without an ocean explorer’s guide to identify what you see in the great big blue sea. AA  few weeks with the NookHD+, I was hooked_eventhough, IA  wasna€™t a fan of touchscreen only. And in all honesty, since the beginning of the Smart Phone craze, I had insisted upon that all of my primary tech gadgets used for work, research and blogging had to be equipped with a QWERTY keyboard. Ray’s Ocean Explorers’ Guide to the real animals that live in Nemo’s neighborhood, the Great Barrier Reef. However, in this particular instance,The NookHD+, again, touchscreen only, I made an exception.
As I continued to learn the ins and outs of my newly purchased NookHD+ , at the same time, I began to inquire about the accessories compatible with the tech gadget.
Clownfish live in stinging anemones but the anemone’s tentacles don’t sting them because they are covered in a special slime.
In doing so, I foundA  the tech item had a Stylus Pen specifically made to use with the NookHD+.
Weeks later, I purchased a different kind of Stylus Pen , I noticed while standing atA  the checkout counter at Walgreens,pictured next to this article is that Stylus Pen.
Quite astonishing the Stylus Pen worked wellA  with both of my tech gadgets ( Smart Phone & Tablet). A frequent question a tantamount of consumers and shoppers find themselves entertaining especially during the holidays when manufacturers and retailers offer what they consider to be great deals and bargains.
After giving the device a run for its money as well as a brief critique of the various apps and functions,I stated in my review of the Nook HD+ how pleased I was with the tech gadget. Further into the critique, I also commented that I was soooo pleased with the tech gadget that I wanted to protect my investment.
Based on my income and budget,I considered the purchase of the Nook HD+ to be a major purchase of the year. You cut 8 legs in the hot dog and when you place it into a pot of boiling water the tentacles curl all up.
Shortly after, I purchased the Nook HD+,I began to look at the recommended accessories for the tech gadget. Eventually, after I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange 14 day trial period,I chose to protect my investment with a Nook HD+ cover. As I began to search and think of different items that could be the product of the month for September,I began to heavily weigh in on August's product of the month,the Nook HD+cover.
Hours later,I arrived to the assertion that there's more than one way to protect your investment.
With the assertion___, there's more than one way to protect your investment, I made the final choice to make Smart Phone covers as the product of the month for September. It is Movie Friday.  We watched Finding Nemo and made graceful jellyfish out of a colorful mosaic of tissue paper. Furthermore, within the past five years,Ive purchased several Smart Phones from Virgin Mobile. To be truthful, I've even purchased Smart Phone insurance,a good choice because a few months later my Smart Phone had an accident.
Despite all of the stuff I tried, sampled, tasted and tested during the recent months, as a result of a long review and critique besides from featuring the Smart Phone as a product of the month,I began to think of the different ways Ia€™ve used to protect my Smart Phone as an alternative product of the month. For instance,Smart Phone insurance has been one the ways I protect my investment from unexpected accidents. Ostensibly, there's more than one way to protect your Smart Phone from accidents such as, for example, you accidentally drop and break your Smart Phone or in some weird, odd, freak accident as you rush out the door you accidentally step on your Smart Phone or heaven forbids the same thing happens to you that happen to me, a few months ago, I dropped my Smart Phone in the toilet.
Without a question, eschewing further debate, Smart Phone insurance is a great investment for consumers and shoppers who use their Smart Phone daily and for work.
Best of all, Smart Phone insurance usually saves the consumer from digging deep into their pockets. So, what about before those mishaps and accidents, if you havena€™t figured it out__ there's more than one way to protect your investment. Even though, at first, I might of skipped over protecting my investments, I am more open to the idea of investing and protecting my major purchases. Remember: We will be closed Thursday for the Fourth of July    July 8-12, 2013This week the Magic School Bus transported us back to the Prehistoric World of Dinosaurs and Reptiles and next week we will become Paleontologists in search of dinosaur bones and fossils. Here's an example of what I am talking about, I currently have several Smart Phone covers to protect my Smart Phone from breakage, moisture, and malfunctioning.
Varying in price,color,size and shape, most of today's Smart Phone manufacturers and retailers offer to consumers and shoppers Smart Phone covers as an accessory.
From passwords, to anti-theft apps, to screen locks and codes, there's more than one way to protect your investment. Regardless of the price, and hopefully it is within your budget, a true frugal savvy shopper knows the importance of protecting their investment.
I wonder what mine will be?” The children were expectant dinosaur parents during our Hatch A Dinosaur science experiment. They filled the glasses with warm water, placed the colorful egg capsules into the water, and eagerly waited for their dinosaur eggs to hatch.  They decided Catalina was the best Dinosaur Mother because her red egg hatched first and everyone gathered around to help Christopher hatch his blue egg which needed some extra help with the hatching process.
There was a little dino envy when Jaden’s hatched into a big red Iguanodon but they each loved their little hatchlings as only a parent could.  The children are wearing Dinosaur T-Rex hats through out the day for special Dinosaur story times and to practice their own reading skills. Above everything else,both I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange process,quite remarkable,I even have the receipt to prove it. The children are continuing to learn to stay in their own seats or on their own letter on the alphabet rug until the school activity is complete.
Unlike sooo manyA  items, I ve returned and exchanged in the past,__it,meaning my Nook HD+ survived the fourteenth days as printed on the receipt. A business practice that's part of Barnes and Noble store policy that allows customers fourteen days to return an item. In short,the 14th day, adhering to store policy was the final day that I couldA  actually return my Nook HD+ and get cash back. It goes without saying ,I readA  the instructions,totally unavoidable with a new tech gadget,as well as,downloaded apps,and,uploaded wallpapers. He taught us the signs for the letter D, Dinosaur, the letter V and Volcano.  He even read us the book Harold and the Purple Crayon: Dinosaur Days in Sign language! Mia, a future teacher herself, shared a special photo book of all their adventures around the world. Not quite sure,on the day I purchased my Nook HD+__ifA  in fact, I would be satisfied with my purchase,I chose at the time not to purchase any kind of accessories. As it turns out,I was soooo pleased with my purchase of the Nook HD+,I wanted to protect my investments. It doesnt matter if you're on lunch break,on a mini vacation,at a webinar or conference,filling out an online report or having to send emails can be a hassle if you don't have a wifi connection,a Broadband device is just one of the many tech gadgets that consumers and shoppers frequently use to get an internet connection.
Constantly,on the go,I wanted to have access to wifiA  while away from my place of residency. Because,I perform an arrary task that frequently requires wifi access ,I purchased a Broadband to Go device from Virgin Mobile.
Signing Time: A special sign language class with Thomas Cabaluna and a Dinosaur Story time in sign language.
Egregiously,as a Virgin Mobile customer and fan,I live by Virgin Mobile products except in the case of Virgin Mobile wifi devices.
New Sign language signs learned include the signs for dinosaur, volcano, and the letter signs D and V Movie Friday and Lunch: Disney’s Dinosaurs and Dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets.
Math: Counting spots on the Triceratops, Skip counting, addition, and patterns with Leapfrog Math to the Moon. Art: Harold the Purple Crayon Art, Using stencils with paint, How to make a volcano and prehistoric landscape, and Sticker Art. Recently,I purchased Virgin Mobile's MiFi 2200 to conciliate my worries about not being able to access wifi home. Prehistoric Play Dough Center: We discovered how to make and identify  dinosaur and lizard footprints in play dough.
Pretend Play: We introduced new stegosaurus, and brontosaurus toys to our play and block area. Aside from very slow internet speed,the device could only connect to one tech gadget and,the 3G USB plug n play stick broke too easily.


The last two weeks the children have been busy discovering the exciting world of paleontology. A paleontologist is a scientist who learns about prehistoric animals like dinosaurs by studying their fossils. Affordable,great to have on hand for shopping emergencies,the latest in recycling,a recyclable tote makes shopping less of a hassle.
Squeezing modeling clay with their hands they picked out  dinosaurs and pressed them as hard as they could into the clay making an imprint fossil. Ditching the old biodegradeable plastic bags for a recyclable tote,it's a smart move and a great investment for frugal,savvy,and environmentally conscious consumers and shoppers.Available in most local chain stores and at grocery stores,recyclable totes are becoming the better choice than leaving stores with the traditional biodegradeable plastic bag. In this learning unit the children learned what a paleontologist does and the tools they use to discover fossils.
Part of a movement to get consumers and shoppers involved in recycling and to think about going green,consumers and shoppers now have the option of trading in those plastic bags for a recyclable tote. A frequent shopper,I usually purchase a couple of recyclable totes to hold store purchases and other stuff. So here at A Happy Daycare the children actually touched a real piece of a dinosaur bone and examined an ammonite shell fossil over 65 million years old. Eventhough,I like having the choice to purchase a recyclable tote,I havent completely stop using biodegradeable plastic bags. The children were very excited to discover that when you look through a Magnifying glass it make things huge!
However,I have to point out the fact that when a consumer and shoppers purchase a recyclable tote they're not limited to using the tote only in that store,that's why they're called recyclable totes because they can be used more than once. In fact, most recycable totes last for more than a week,I should know because I still have a few leftover from the previous month. The children measured and helped mix up the recipe in a big bucket to use to make treasure stones. They molded it into a rock shape  and we hid a treasure into each of their stones for them to dig out when the treasure stone harden. A great deal,a really good find,a price you wont find anywhere else,and the best price among competitors,I love a great sale and I love rewards for shopping.
On Friday we brought out more tools, brushes, and little shovels for the children to dig out their treasures. Savings and Rewards,for most consumers and shoppers,it's all about getting the best price for items purchase daily. From household supplies to groceries,anyone who shops frequently knows consumers and shoppers love a really good sale_,the economic recession of 2008 could be the culprit. We read the book The Dinosaur Stomp and then stepped right on to the dinosaur stilts to see how it feels to stomp around with big dinosaur feet. In fact,since the 2008 economic recession savings and rewards has become extremely important to American families on a budget.
The dinosaur feet stilts we used were only a few inches off the ground but when the children stood on them they  thought that they were bigger than life!  Dinosaur had bones and when you look at the shapes of their bones you can tell what kind of dinosaur it is. For many American consumers and shoppers,the unexpected downturn of the American economy caused a disruption in their daily activies thus forcing consumer and shoppers to rethink the way they shop and how they shop. The children learned how to identify stegosaurus bones, t-rex bones, and long-neck dinosaur bones by using critical thinking and matching skills.
As a frequent shopper and consumer,I am constantly looking for a great deal and sales on items I purchase regularly,mainly because I do live on a strict budget. Admittedly,after the 2008 economic recession,I rediscovered coupons,and began clipping coupons frequently. In addition to clipping coupons,I also began to check sale ads at home and at the door of stores before shopping.
We learned that even if you find a dinosaur skeleton you have to put it back together in the right order.
Along with making a shopping list,clipping coupons at home,checking sale ads at the door and comparing prices,these days one of the best ways to save and get the best deals,I feel without a question has to be with a savings and reward card. We practiced our puzzle skills with mixed up t-rex flash cards and a plastic skeleton mold.
And speaking honestly, a savings and rewards card from your local chain store should be a consumer or shoppers BF(bestie).
Dinosaurs have bones and so do we.   Next stop on the Magic School Bus Adventure is Inside the Human Body. A must have for consumers and shoppers who seriously want to save,a savings and rewards card. Throughout the years, my experience with last minute shopping in most instances was not too pleasant. Admittedly,I empathize as well as concur with consumers who express sentiments that last minute shopping makes the shopper(consumer) feel uncomfortable and forlorn with the just thought of buying a gift at the last minute. Reading and Writing: We are practicing sight words, sounding out three letter words, and recognizing that print is a part of our daily lives. Often tight on funds to purchase a gift ahead of time,last minute shopping for an overwhelmed consumer with a limited budget could cause the consumer to be late and in some instance not to attend the event or special function.
Subsequently, over the years, I have come to realize that last minute shopping it's not the best of fun. As a result, I definitely would not recommend last minute shopping to a consumer as a shopping tip. Unequivocally, shopping for special events and functions such as finding an appropriate could take several visits different stores. This fall Lindsay will be attending Kindergarten at a school in Prunedale and Jaden will be attending Kindergarten at a school in Monterey. Finding the appropriate could mean spending an entire day in a Hallmark store reading cards, it could also mean spending all day on the phone with friend or relatives discussing gift registry,preferences,stores,likes and dislike of the recipient. Ostensibly,the older you get the adults in your life expect two things from you one not to embarrass them in public and two if you don't have a gift to bring at least show up at special functions on time. Indeed, an earnest shopper as well as a meticulous shopper knows finding the right gift or card for a special function could require hours of shopping and visiting different stores.
Shopping done precipitously could result in purchasing the wrong size,color, or something way out in left field.
Potato Head as a teaching tool for the children to visualize the body parts that make up the five senses. Don't wait until the last minute to shop for a party,baby showers,bachelorette bash,birthdays,holidays ,and anniversaries avoid uncomfortableness and the feeling of being inadequate,plan the week before. On certain days, I have even shopped the day of the event that often leaves me feeling embarrassed ashamed, and guilty about my finances even worse depress. The nose knows how to smell and we practiced using our sense of smell to explore the world around us by seeing how many things we could smell. The children even put on silly glasses with big noses to go on a nature walk in the garden to smell the flowers.
Incontrovertibly,last minute shopping in many instances could causes the consumer to become distraught,exasperated, and disconcerted not surprisingly all the emotions take away from the planned day.
We have X-rays hanging up on the windows for the children to explore and discover how an X-ray takes a picture of bones.
What's more important being punctilious for the planned event or arriving with a hand picked gift for the recipient or recipients?
Ultimately,the answer remains with the shopper (consumer) The answer should be non bias and based on the event as well as the recipient and not the shoppers wallet . The meticulous consumer that normally keeps track of birthdays, holidays,and anniversaries with calendars,through emails,P DA's ,Smart phones and other tech savvy gadgets of courses would not necessarily share the same feelings of a last minute shopper . Potato Head Art, and my five senses chart  August 5-9, 2013Next week the Magic School Bus Science explorers will explore the wonderful world of bugs and butterflies. This week we joined the Magic School Bus as it magically shrank down in size to explore inside the human body!
All the children thought it was hilarious that on the Magic School Bus Series the children have a friend named Ralphie in their class too. When we learned about community helpers and farmers we read about a rooster named Ralphie too. Before we explored inside the human body the children laid on a big roll of paper to trace the shape of their own bodies! Seuss’s Horton Hears A Who is, “A person is a person no matter how small.” And it is true it doesn’t matter how big or how small a person is everyone has their own body with the same amazing bones and body organs inside.
Their brain’s job is to think and learn, their heart’s job is to pump, their lung’s job is to breath in air, and their stomachs job is to help digest their food. Now that everyone had made a tracing of their own unique outline the children were ready to paint and add  in  the different bones and organs, during the week, as we learned about them.
On Movie Friday we watched a Double Feature with Sid The Science Kid’s episode on the sense of smell and the Magic School Bus’s series Inside Ralphie. Thanks to Irie and her mom for bringing the Movie Friday Snacks last week and this week.  The children’s sense of taste says the snacks are delicious! This week the children explored the life cycle of butterflies with Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
We practiced the days of the week and counted fruit right along with that wiggly lovable caterpillar. The caterpillar even helped us learn about placing in order from biggest to smallest with the wooden caterpillar stacking gameNoodles, noodles, and more noodles.
Can you find the noodle type that looks like a curly caterpillar, little eggs, a cocoon and a butterfly taking flight. The hunt was on for the children to match the noodles to each butterfly stage and to find the most eggs.  They even selected special leaves and sticks from the garden for their noodle caterpillars.
We harvested green, yellow, and purple organic beans from our Jack and the Beanstalk beans. Then we explored volume with water by transferring the water from one container to another. Thanks to Irie’s Mom for the Yummy Chocolate pudding with gummy worms and Gabriel’s Mom for the homemade muffins.
Magic School Bus: Ants in his pants and Butterfly BogAugust 19-23, 2013This week we are finishing up the last of our summer program and preparing lesson plans for the new school year. We have so many activities and lessons full of learning planned for the upcoming fall season! Please send your child to school in a yellow or black shirt for a day full of bee and bug themed activities. All summer the children have been exploring how to use a magnifier to enlarge objects and this week we introduced how a microscope works. We have a special microscope for young children that plugs directly into the TV screen so the entire class can see all at once.
We went on a nature hunt in the backyard to discover interesting leaves and bugs to look at under the microscope. Catalina, Cole, and Omari were the helpers who held the buckets full of their finds.  We placed them in a jar and used the microscope to enlarge them. We could see the tiniest  caterpillar eggs on our sunflower leaf.  An ant looked like a monster and we didn’t even know that a roly-poly had that many legs.
Each of the children helped pick out the color pattern of their caterpillar, pressed their painted little toes onto the wooden magnet, and tried not to wiggle their toes too much.   Then we added eyes and antennas. She even included an array of nutritious fruit for us and the cake caterpillar to eat just like in the story. August 26-30, 2013This year we finished up our Summer Program with a Busy Bee Celebration Day.
The children came in on Wednesday dressed in yellow and black ready to be busy little bees.
We had bobbling bee antennas on our heads to greet the children as they arrived at our “hive”.
Trinity had little bees on her dress, Jonathan had on his striped bumblebee shirt, and Irie even had bee barrettes in her hair.   What would the little bees eat for breakfast? We learned that if you are going to be a bee then you have to build a hive to go home to.  The children worked together to help build a honeybee hive out of our many tunnels and tents. The “hive” ended up covering their whole play area and they had so much fun crawling in and out of the tunnels buzzing like worker bees. The children dressed up in the bee costumes to fly through the yard and gather pretend nectar from the garden to make their  honey. Pretend play like this gives the children the opportunity to apply the learning and knowledge that they have gained. During Music and Movement Time we danced, jumped and learned how bees communicate to each other where the best flowers are by dancing. The children put on the headbands they made and we all marched through the garden in a buzzing bee parade.
The children loved every minute of it.  A special thanks to Asher’s family for the delicious bee cupcakes they made. Thanks to Irie’s family who worked so hard on making a beautiful honeybee hive filled with honeycomb treats to share. Have a great holiday weekend and remember we will be closed Monday September 2 for Labor Day.
