The months of January and February have been filled with studies about snow, ice, hibernation, penguins and other artic animals. Some teachers created an igloo using 702 used milk jugs. All classes enjoyed having story time inside the igloo. The three year old classes ended their studies with “winter day” activities in the fellowship hall. They ice skated on paper plates, had snowball fights, and ate snow cones!
Some classes painted with ice cubes. And of course, many science experiments were done with ice. Sensory tables were filled with ice and children played with polar bears and penguins!
Children learned about the Emperor penguin! Did you know that the daddy penguin is the one who looks after the young?
One Young 5’s class has space exploration going on during February. They are learning the planets and becoming astronauts! They have built a “command center” in their room and a shuttle rocket. We will soon be putting up the huge spaceship in the pod area! Stop by and join in the fun!
Children are very busy creating their art masterpiece for the Art show in March. Classes have decided on which artist or illustrator to emulate! These pieces will be for sale at the Art show. Watch for more information!
