Happy Friday! 

Hello Pre-K families! Thank you for your patience while we took some time off from the blog. 

Our December has started with a noticeable class-wide interest in preserving, documenting and showing off our work. Each child has showed an incredible initiative to show peers, teachers and parent visitors their special set of skills. This pride in creations, knowledge and ideas sparked photography lessons, student-led games and projects and song compositions. 

We also started the following projects related to Pride, expression, winter and our unique class:

  • Window Display Creation (paper mache snowperson, snow, snow flakes, castle made of ice, igloo...etc.)
  • Meditation Jars 
  • Share Your Voice (share a special talent, idea or story during morning meeting) 
  • Tree decorating and measuring 

Take a look at some of the special interests and skills of each student:
