February was full of care and kindness towards one another. The children gave each other Valentine cards while enjoying their treats at their Valentine party!
The teachers taught lessons on cultural awareness and friendship. Topics discussed were Lunar New Year, the year of the pig, family and cultural traditions. The children listened and danced to different songs from the continent of Asia including music from China, India, Japan, Korea, and Asian Island countries. Teachers introduced games, cultural foods, clothing and books. The top book for the month is, Little Blue and Little Yellow, by Leo Lionni. The story is about two best friends, when one day they can’t find each other. When they finally do, they give each other such a big hug that they turn green!
The children learned about Katsushika Hokusai who was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. The teachers and students also had discussions and lessons on President George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
Our maintenance has been on campus this month working on several projects. Children in our primary and preprimary classes are excited about their new music wall! We are also currently working on placing in a new play structure that will be arriving soon.
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! The teachers discussed Winter, Snow, and Ice. Many discussions and readings were based on habitat and places they live in during cold season, and how animals prepare for hibernation. They also touched base on Antarctica, the climate, and Martin Luther King Day!
Happy Holidays Little Acorn Families! In December, the children have been wrapping up their academic work and Montessori lessons. The teachers have been working hard to make December fun with holiday activities as well. The children discussed and learned about Celebrations around the world. We enjoyed having a fun holiday week before we headed out for the winter break. The children had so much fun preparing and singing for their recital. Thank you to all the parents that attended our winter Recital!
We had great success with Hathaway-Sycamore Child and Family Services! Thank you to all who had an opportunity to grab a tag off our tree this year. We will be looking forward to other opportunities in helping our community during the coming year.
November was a very eventful month for our school and classrooms. Classes spent time discussing what they are thankful for and how to be helpful to others. We had a great turn out for our Thanksgiving potluck, thank you to everyone who contributed to the classroom feasts. We have come to an end with our See’s Candies fundraiser. The school is excited to see how much was raised! Proceeds will go towards playground improvements.
