Festive Fun for all ages


As we walked down the halls today, are hearts were filled with so much joy. At the beginning of December, I tasked our teachers to make this season magical for our children. They have truly blown me away with their effort and commitments to packing in as much fun as they can before sending the kiddos off for a fun little break! Today the children played dreidel and will get to take home their own game pieces and chocolate coins! The toddlers learned about winter and painted their own trees covered with snow! Many classes created washi tape menorahs, too! Finally, we used gift wrapping bows of many sizes to do measuring activities! A variety of lessons were taught with this one simple item! We saw children measuring items around the room, grouping/sorting according to size and/or color, and even measuring themselves! I loved see our infants involved with this!

Christmas Around The World

 Ms. Alexis in Pre-K 1 is sharing holiday traditions from around the world with her students. They started with La Befana, a folktale from Italy. The Christmas Witch can by and left goodies in the shoes of sleeping children. I can't wait to see what tradition the explore next!

Why is the Sky Blue?


Miss Shellie taught us a great lesson focusing on the color spectrum and answered the question of  "Why is the sky blue?". The demonstration included milk (the atmosphere) and water (the air). She placed a prism and flash light to the side of her model to show what happens to colors as the sun sets. Science demonstrations are always super engaging for the children. Not only do they get a great lesson, but they are also developing skills like speaking and listening and concentration. 

Learning Our Colors


Toddler Three is working on their colors! Teachers have daily buckets of items varying in size and texture with one thing in common... the color YELLOW! The kids are doing a great job exploring and tinkering with all the items. This is a great way to expose them to categorization and language. Thank you, Teachers!
