Happy New Year
We hope that everyone had a great holiday season. The staff is so happy to have the children back at school, where many exciting activities await them in their classrooms. The first day back, they made wonderful “snow” out of baking soda and shaving cream. It even felt like real snow!
The teachers have been busily preparing activities that include topics such as mittens, hats, snowflakes, snow people and Winter. The children will also spend a day learning about a great leader, Martin Luther King. Teachers will tie this in with the letter K and talk about kindness to all. Jan Brett, who writes and illustrates beautiful books such as The Mitten and The Hat, will be our author of the month Polar Bears, hibernation and Teddy Bears will also be part of our themes for the month, culminating in a Teddy Bear Picnic.
