Inspiring Life-long Learning for 25 Years
Greetings, dear parents,
King Winter now is in the land...
Look out! Look out!Jack Frost is about.He's after our fingers and toes!And all through the nightthe dear little spriteis working where nobody knows.He'll climb each tree,so nimble is he, his silvery powder he'll shake;and then while we're asleepto the window he'll creep,and such wonderful pictures he'll make.Around the town, with a leap and a bound,he'll change every color to white!And then home he will go, and he'll laugh "Ho, ho, ho!--Such fun I have had in the night!"
We also had a visit from Mrs. Thaw...
The children have had a good week back at school. Their play has been mostly harmonious, going back to old favorite themes of fishing (now ice-fishing of course), puppet shows, pixies' tree-house adventures; and some new ones too (ordering food in a fancy restaurant). Our classroom has some lovely new dress-up silks, and a few other new items that the children have been enjoying, and they have been enjoying their outside play time very much, as well. Yesterday, since the wind-chill was predicted to be extreme, we stayed by school instead of going to the woods—but we did take extra outside time in the morning and had a lovely campfire in our fire circle. It turned out to be a sunny, lovely day in spite of the cold.
We had our first birthday celebration of the year, and will continue with a birthday nearly every week for the next while...the children are certainly growing up!.
Wishing you a happy long weekend (don't forget there is no school on Monday the 15th for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day).
