This week the children were busy celebrating two holidays. We celebrated Valentine’s Day with an ice cream party and made beautiful cards for mom and dad. The children also discussed ways that we show love through words and actions.
We also had a visit from a dental hygienist this week who showed the children the proper way to brush their teeth. We discussed foods that are healthy for our teeth and foods that we should only eat in moderation.
This week we also celebrated Presidents’ Day discussing George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The children measured themselves against a life-size 6 foot 4 inch Abraham Lincoln drawing, and measured things around the classroom to find items that were taller and shorter than themselves. They also built towers and bridges and measured them with rulers and yard sticks.
