Poison Prevention




We are so lucky to have parents involved in our school! Our former parents are still very supportive and frequently enrich our classrooms long after their children have graduated! This week our classrooms were lucky to have a former parent visit to teach our children about Poison prevention. She does a wonderful job and the children learn so much from her short visit! Thanks M, we appreciate your support and expertise!

The Mitten

Every year my 4's class participates in a special project. Each project is based on the children's interests. Sometimes it's an invention unit or an architecture unit or an art unit (this was a great unit which ended with a gallery showing of all the children's art) or a play. This year's class loves to perform so a play was perfect! We performed "The Mitten" by Jan Brett. The parents made the costumes with child input. We did have to create a few extra characters since we had more children than animals from the book. So we added a cat and a bear cub. Ms. Anna was "Baba" since she is old already! :-)
