Ms. Lookingbill’s Class Creates Fairy Houses

This week Mrs. Lookingbill's kindergarten students entered the imagination of author and illustrator Tracy Kane as they discovered the wonderful world of Fairy Houses. Fairy Houses are small structures for fairies and nature’s friends to visit. Made from sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers, seaweed, pinecones and nuts the homes are put together with all natural materials. Students collected materials they could find then split into groups each building their own Fairy House around the school grounds. The simple challenge of creating a fairy house gave students a unique activity that encouraged them to go outside and connect with the natural world, nurturing care and respect for the environment.
