This rainy week has been quite colorful here at school celebrating our country! Today our friends went way back to the basics with finger painting. Messy play like finger painting is important to every child's development. It helps the body and brain integrate information, such as that needed for later spatial concepts, math and language. Finger painting is also a most relaxing and creative way to express feelings.

Children need to remain active throughout the day; promoting outdoor play allows them to get fresh air and explore their environment more. Hands-on learning, the natural environment and loose parts in the outdoors stimulate children’s senses through what they hear, touch, see and feel.
We are so excited for the week ahead for all things red, white & blue in celebration of Independence Day! We've got lots of fun in store & can't wait to share it with everyone! Take a look at these adorable babies who also are ready for a great week of celebration!

Our friends are discovering all types of animals during Wild Things week. Today's discussion included snakes and how they shed their skin. Snakes literally grow out of their skin. Every few months, most start rubbing against the ground or tree branches. Starting at the mouth, a snake slithers out of its too-tight skin.
Our students were even able to see real snake skin!

Our friends are discovering WILD THINGS this week! They have been learning about all kinds of animals, including birds, snakes, and even panda bears!
An animal is considered wild if it lives in the wilderness.Wild animals live in a habitat, which is their natural home, like a rain forest, a mountain, a pine tree forest, or a beach.
