Did you see the great photos of the children sledding? Thank you Heather and Matt.
We have had a very busy week. Tammy helped celebrate Mardi Gras by having the children make feather masks and reading a book about the festival.
We have been really exploring many of the materials in school.
We have been making many letter books and alphabet books.
We have been singing many songs some of which are “Medicine Wheel Chant” accompanied by heavy duty percussion, “The Allee Allee O”, “Santa Maloney”, “Sally Go Round the Moon”, “Down by the Station”, “Eye Winker”, “On Top of Spaghetti”, etc. The drumming circle was great; oh how they love the African Drums.
Tammy read a book about the Iditarod and discussed the event which takes place in Alaska every March. We have read many books this week. “Ollie’s Ski Trip” by Elsa Beskow, was a favorite. Ask your children about “Mrs. Thaw”. Other favorites were “The Tomten” by Astrid Lindgren, “The Dot” by Peter H. Reynolds and we re-read “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?” by Carol McCloud…a great reminder about being kind to each other.
Two of our children left for Nova Scotia, Robert will be returning from Poland next week. Charlie is leaving for Florida. Tala is heading off to Hawaii. I can’t wait to see their journals of their trips.
My thanks to Tammy and Brigette for all their help.
P.S. We welcome two new children this week; Gregory and Mariyah.
