The snow has been a bit shy this year, but that hasn't stopped us from having fun outside. Our imaginations have taken over as we play on the plow mountains and snow painting with Amanda Gibbs! We also had yet another successful round of conferences with parents. Thank you to all who came to meet with us this month as we know it is not always easy to make time...we appreciate it!
Last month, Sprouts spent a lot of time tracking different animals in the wild; particularly the rascally fox and mysterious wolf. We also learned some new light/dark art concepts and explored the idea of "illustration" within books and using our own skills. Kids learned how cool it is to cast their silhouette on the wall using only a flashlight...and teachers learned that wiggly children make for semi-accurate silhouette drawings! All in good fun! :)
This month, as there will be a lot of love and affection in the air, we will be talking about and navigating through our "feelings" and how we can come to understand them. And since we are learning about the emotions within ourselves, we will also take a tour of our bodies, from our skin.. to our hearts.. to our bones!
Other concepts of study this month are storytelling and fairytales, inkblots and symmetry, melting and freezing. As always, we encourage you to join us in teaching these topics at home with your sprouts! Looking forward to a very sweet month :)
A special thank you to all our families for their involvement. We've had help around the room, help from home, tasty homemade treats, and some guest teachers... we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We are really feeling the LOVE lately...
