Annoying Insects

Hello, club!

This week we are exploring the topic of outdoor pests that we may encounter during our field trip on Thursday.

Tuesday we had a lesson about bees, wasps and their stings. We learned words like "tweezers," "baking soda" and "meat tenderizer" as well as "home remedy."

Wednesday we will talk about mosquitoes. Here is an African folk tale called "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears."

Hello, class!

Here are two spelling lessons for Household Problems vocabulary.

This one is easier. This one is harder.

Would you like to try to find exterminators, electricians, plumbers and appliance repair people in the Yellow Pages? Start at Google. Type "plumber" and "Windsor, Ontario" to get started.

Here is a video of some common southern Ontario wildlife. You may see some of these creatures on Thursday at Ojibway Park and Nature Centre.

If you need help, just call me!
