Welcome to a new year here at SMCC @ The Butler University/IPS Lab School. We are so thrilled to welcome back returning families and families new to our location. The children are in the swing of our daily play together. We started the year with an author study of Eric Carle. We used this knowledge to launch our story workshop. Story workshop is a way for us to think about telling stories through our play. We think about telling stories about places we go and things we like to do with our friends and families. We also this about telling stories like the ones we read. The children have experimented with their own versions of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Mixed Up Chameleon.
