This week was full of fun as we dicussed the Winter Olympics and different Winter sports! The children enjoyed learning what the Olympics are and learning what sports are in the Winter Olympics. We have also been tracking how many medals the United States has won so far!

Ms. Mel and Ms. Yao (Ryan’s mom) also shared with us about Lunar New Year! Ms. Mel explained about how each year is represented by an animal in Korean and Chinese culture and that 2018 is The Year of The Dog. She even taught the children how children bow to their elders on Lunar New Year and receive money from their elders and Ryan’s mom shared with us how children in China buy all new clothes to begin year. Ms. Yao also gave the children a red envelope with a chocolate coin and told them that for New Year’s, children in China receive a red envelope from their parents which contain money. So much fun!

We also had so much fun at our Valentine’s Day Party! Thank you to all the parents who brought in the needed items for our party and to those who took time out of their day to help make our Valentine’s Day Party so much fun, including activities for taller and smaller kids, such as the best bounce house for toddlers and many other activities.

Working on the 100 Board from the Math area of the classroom! The child places the numbers from 1-100 on the board and through repetition, discovers the order of numeration.
