This week was all about Ice and snow! (Lol,go figure). We read some fantastic books and watched some interesting videos about how icicles are formed, how many points a snowflake has, what a blizzard is, the different shapes a snowflake can form, fun crafts and science experiments that were all about snow and ice!!! Let’s hope we get some snow soon so our kiddos can play in it!!!
This week in science class, Mr. John taught us about density. We put one egg in salt water and one egg in fresh water. The egg in the salt water floated, and the egg in the fresh water sank! Thanks for a fun science experiment!
Today’s the big day!!! Your kiddos have been working so hard on the Christmas show!!! We are all so excited! ! This week our theme was Christmas around the world!! We learned all of the different traditions and how people celebrate in England, Russia, Germany, China, and in South America.

We had such a fantastic week learning all about being thankful!! Together we read some amazing books that taught them what it really means to be thankful. We also had a great discussion on wants vs’s needs!! Your kiddos did such a great job on this, so we decided to make a chart out of it!! Together we also created our own class book about everything we are thankful for. It’s in our library, so come check it out!!! Ms. Amanda also had our friends create different crafts that gave them a better understanding of what it means to be thankful:)
This week in science class, Mr. John taught us about surface tension! We poured some pepper into a bowl of water, and then placed a cotton swab covered in dish soap into the bowl. We observed the pepper move away from the dish soap. Thank you for such a fun science class!
These past two weeks have been SPOOKTACULAR! We had the best time learning about the differencs between an arachnid and an insect. We also had fun creating a tree web together! I was so proud of how well your kiddos remembered all of the different spider facts! They also had fun making different spider crafts:) This week the kids had a BLAST making their own Halloween decorations for the classroom party!We also worked really hard on the different chores, such as dusting, taking out the trash, cleaning the tables, sweeping, vacuming, and more! When children are doing chores it helps them to incur a sense of purpose at a young age. It also helps them gain their own independence.
Please make sure to place your child’s costume in their backpack or in a labled bag. They do not have to bring in a trick o treat bag because we made them in class. 11:30 our pizza party will start, followed by costume change. If you have any questions at all please ask!
