We began exploring the continents. We have incorporated animals from Antarctica and the Arctic Circle in the language, math and sensorial areas of the classroom. Your children have displayed an enthusiastic interest in penguins and polar bears. Other animals include the orca, seal and arctic wolf.
Is your child as tall as a penguin? In this case, the emperor penguin which stands just over four feet tall. Take a look and see how your children measure up against our life-sized cardboard model.
Happy birthday to Bridget and Wesley! Bridget is now 3 years old and Wesley is now 2.
We celebrated the Lunar New Year with Quynh and Savannah. It was an amazing experience. They shared books, a marionette, fruit for tasting and lovely decor for our classroom. The girls changed into traditional apparel for our circle time celebration. Savannah wore a qipao and Quynh wore an ao dai. The girls gave out red envelopes to their classmates which included notes of well wishes for the new year. Some of the fruits we tried were persimmons, asian pears, pomelos and dragonfruit.
I am looking forward to catching up with you all at our classroom coffee this month. We will assemble in the West movement room at 8:15am on Thursday, February 20th.

Hint: We are building a community, quite literally.
