January was a great start to the new year! The students have settled back after the holiday break and are learning and growing every day! Our classrooms had fun exploring Antarctica and colder weather climates. The infants explored with ice and our Pre-Primary and Primary classrooms focused on Arctic animals. We have added Webby Dance to our list of extra-curricular activities. Classes take place on Thursday’s. Purple flyers are up at the front desk if you would like to sign up! School will be closed on Monday January 20th for Dr. Martin Luther King’s Birthday.
Our book of focus for January was The Mitten by Jan Brett. It’s about a young boy named Nicki, who loses his mitten in the snow and his lost mitten becomes a host to a lot of different forest animals, eventually becoming a warm home for the winter animals. Our scholars love reading this book. Each class created fun artwork that represented the mitten. Our classroom curriculum also focused on Winter Animals and Hibernation. The children enjoyed learning about why animals hibernate, and which animals prefer cold weather.
