The kids seem to have more fun on our second day of snow fun. They were pros at climbing on the sled and enjoying the ride down the slope. We had a snowball fight and even got to make a bigger snowman. Hip, hip, hooray!
We read fun books and learn Mandarin words and numbers one to ten from Ms. Melissa
In class we Cooked fried rice it was fun experience, all the children got to put something in the wok and they heard the sizzling sound. “It was tasteful!” Heidi and Kevin (Evelyn’s mom and dad) graciously shared a book “Bringing In the New Year,” dumplings and egg roll as well to have for snack in the class.
Jim Dine, an American painter, graphic artist, sculptor and poet from the Pop Art period was famous for his series of heart paintings. When asked what his fascination with the hearts, “I have no idea but it’s mine and I use it as a template for all my emotions/feelings. It’s a landscape for everything.” The students were asked “If your heart could have many colors, what would it look like?” They also talked about what makes your heart feel happy and what actions can we do to show our love to someone. -Ms. Monica
Reading the Bible story “Jesus loves the little children (Matthew 18:1-14) captured the children’s attention. Specially where Jesus said “Let the children come to me and don’t stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to persons like them.” We are very happy to see how fast our kids learn the song “Jesus Love Me,” along with hand motions for our song.
Our Valentines Day Celebration was adorable. All the children got a chance to distribute their valentine cards, decorate our sugar cookies and enjoy fresh fruit as a morning snack
Our Valentine’s Day parties were a success! Our kiddos all enjoyed the delicious treats you all contributed with. Nothing puts a smile on a kid’s face like 2 heart shaped waffles, mixed berries, syrup and powdered sugar. This Valentine’s party was not just about having some sweets and exchanging gifts. We focused on the importance of showing kindness towards others and praying for one another – lots of meaningful discussions this week. We hope you enjoy the videos and pictures that accompany this blog. Happy Valentine’s Day Room 1A!
Room 2 celebrated Valentine’s Day with our Jesus Loves Me Party! We enjoyed a festive valentine fruit parfait and passed out our valentine cards. Ms. Monica stopped by for a special reading of Love by Eric Carle and passed out cross necklaces to remind us who loves us the most—JESUS!
