This week our class has been busy in Art class. Since it is fairytale month, the children have been talking about pirate ships so we decided to make our own! After we painted our ship with our favourite colour, we decorated our sails! We drew some treasure on one sail, and we wrote our name on the other sail. This week we also worked on our January project, painting snowflakes. We mixed different shades of blue and had fun painting and mixing the different shades!
Today we had some of our older friends join us for the morning, and we decided to take advantage of some extra time on the dance floor! Our older friends showed us some cool hip-hop moves and then we all decided to join hands and dance together. It was a little tricky to hold on sometimes, but it was great to practice orienting ourselves and navigating the space safely. We jumped and grooved until we were all worn out. We love having dance parties!
Yesterday was a very special day for one of our friends – Happy 4th Birthday! We had a super fun day of playing and singing some of our favourite games and songs, and we got to finish it off with a special snack of cupcakes! The Birthday Boy told us how excited he was about having a special party with his family later that night, and about some of the special presents he got for his birthday. We’re so proud to see our friend growing up and we can’t wait to see what the next year brings! Thanks for sharing your special day with us!
