A break in the Cold Front

It has been a busy week for all at the House, with Monkeynastix, Karate, Yoga, French and Music making an appearance, on top of what was happening during program in each classroom….busy, busy, busy!

And with temperatures finally allowing us to see our backyard, we were able to enjoy some fresh, crisp air…yes, a beach is always nice, but when you breathe in that fresh air, it’s not all that bad…right?

Speaking up breathing, let’s all take a deep breath, put our feet up, and sit back and relax as I take you on a journey through the house and into each of the classrooms to see just what everyone got up to…

We will dive right into things starting with the youngest of the House in Toddler One, where they used their senses to explore different textures…from bubble wrap to sand paper, to painting with our hands, to the prickle of grass…

They may have got a little messy, but it’s always worth it in the end…

As we move into the Toddler Two classroom, there was no mess here, as they focused on cleaning, and sweeping the week away…

The Toddler Twos used their hand-eye coordination to sweep the jewels into the square on the floor…(side note: looking for some help with the house work? Put some tape down, and tell your little ones to sweep the crumbs into the square…here’s proof it works!)

They swept the jewels, and then they swept and scooped some more…

They even swept when they were painting…


From Toddlers to Preschool we go! The Preschool class was learning all about the different body parts, and what it means to respect others when it comes to their space and belongings. R-E-S-P-E-C-T…..find out what it means…

Which helped them when it came to French Fridays with Ms. S. Madame S has been teaching the children the different body parts en Francais, and today we learnt how to sing…”Tete, epaules, genoux et peids…” Pardon my French…that was, “Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes!”

We also used our bodies to stretch it out with Yoga!

And Karate…

And with our mouths we sang with Rachelle…”We’re going on a bear hunt…”

The toddlers also got in on the action moving all body parts with Monkeynastix…


We are not done just yet, let’s talk about what the Kinder classroom got up to this week…

They built towers, towns, and cities.

And when it was just a little too chilly to go outside, they stayed inside to make playdough together…see the masterpieces below.

The Kinder classroom has also been working hard on their letter recognition, not only when singing Jolly Phonics, but when working away in their very own work folders – tracing the different letters, and then attempting to write the letters all by themselves too! They are very proud when they complete their work!

These smiles are contagious….especially as we head into the weekend! Smile 🙂
