Teddy Bears - April 2017 Update

Happy Spring Everyone! 

During the months of February and March, the school has been very busy with many fun festivities.  In February the school celebrated the Lunar New Year by dressing up in our New Year outfits, making rooster/lantern crafts and cooking a special lunch! We also invited the parents to come celebrate with us in the afternoon with songs, dancing, and a lion dance. We all had fun going into the New Year with this celebration at school!

Following the Lunar New Year was Valentines Day. The Teddy Bears learned about the Bible verse, " Love your neighbor as yourself." from Mark 12:31. The children learned about respect, kindness, and compassion toward others. The school celebrated Valentines Day on February 14th by passing out cards to their friends and teachers. They also made a decorative bag to hold all of their goodies. To show love and appreciation to their parents, the Teddy Bears made a beautiful heart wall hanging and card. We love you Mom and Dad! Thank you for all that our do for your children!

Alongside all the festivities we learned the letters L and M as well as the numbers 15-18. Some of the highlights were building Legos from home for show and tell, making lemonade,  muffins, a monkey craft, and an Abraham Lincoln craft for President's Day.

In March we learned about the letters N-Q. For the letter N we make nests out of blocks, made a nacho dish, and played nurse  with our classmates as patients. For the letter O we learned about the ocean by making an ocean in a bag, a painted shell craft, and assembled an ocean scene cracker. When we learned about the letter P, we made English muffin pizzas, had a picnic and created a pizza painting. We also had a police officer come and teach us about is job, equipment and safety. For the letter Q we made quesadillas!
