The frog ponds also continues to be a great adventure for the children. They can make their scientific observations of the changing states of water as the stream freezes over. What a great way to learn about states of water and water safety.
Deer continue to be found in our forest and the children thoroughly enjoy tracking them in the snow. No antlers found yet! We did find a new type of animal track though, and believe that it was made by a mouse or a mole.
Please keep in mind that with these extreme changes in temperature, it is important that the children have extra mittens and socks. With all of the outdoor play and changing of boots in the wet hallways, it is quite easy for socks to become wet and uncomfortable. Merci !!!
Here are some photos of our inside play too, where the children are socially engaged with their friends and teachers.
Scientists in the School will be coming on February 2nd to teach the children about magnets. In order to make this activity a great success, we require 4-5 parents to come and volunteer their time in the classroom. If you are able to volunteer, please send us an email. Merci !!!!
