Le France ‼️

What an exciting week we had as we explored France 🇫🇷 Our children got familiar with their flag and had the chance to make one. They learned organization by keeping blue on the left and red in the right, all while learning to distinguish their colors and keeping the middle part white. We let the children extend their creativity by having wooden blocks available and an Eiffel Tower on the center of the table. From this inspiration, the children created their very own Eiffel Tower. Adding more fun for our little tourists, we made some delicious crepes😋 We are so blessed at PCS! We even had farm animals come to US! While some children preferred to admire from afar, others had the chance to go inside and touch the animals! It was such a great adventure at the big school!!


And of course, can’t forget about our weekly fun in the water 😜

AMERICA

Hot dogs, chips and watermelon was our special Friday lunch to celebrate the 4th of July!We had a lot of children coming back from a long weekend talking about fireworks and how loud and bright they were. Our discussion inspire our little artists with marble painting.​                                                  Walking to the big school for our weekly VBS     🙏🏻☺️                                                                              In our class we all made jelly sandwiches and cut them into a ⭐️ shape mmmmm!😋

A Private Concert for the a Younger Pod!

Today we enjoyed a special up close and personal concert from one of our fabulously involved parents and family friend who happen to be incredibly talented concert musicians!! We had a counting lesson on the strings of the violin and the cello, learned musical vocabulary, and joined together in song as we were serenaded by our special guests! 

The younger pod extends a huge THANK YOU to Elliston’s mommy, Joo, for arranging and providing such a once-in-a-lifetime immersive experience for the budding minds of rooms 4 and 5. Thank you!!

The Firefighters are Here! :-)

We had a super terrific fun visit from the Pasadena Fire Department today! They backed up their truck and ambulance into the driveway and brought us all over to take a picture by the fire truck. Then, Firefighter Mark showed us how they dress up in all their special gear! He explained to the kiddos that even though they look scary in their fire clothes they should not be scared because they are there to help  them. Then we got to meet each firefighter! There were five men and one woman firefighter! One of our girls has already decided that firefighting is the career for her! 😉 Then we were invited to see the engine and the ambulance! Boy, do they have a lot of goodies in there! Sadly, we had to say goodbye. I’m not sure who was more upset the students or the single teachers! 😂 Here’s a look see…..

Thank you Ms. Cindy for arranging this amazing event. Dressing up, singing and  reading all about  firefighters eased the children into this event.

 

Tree Lighting🎄

The past few days our children have been bringing various ornaments to put up on our Christmas tree. We all looked forward to the day when we would be able to hang them up. The children got a chance to hang up their very own ornament brought from home. After, we turned off all the classroom lights and watched our tree light up!

All of this was followed up with delicious hot chocolate, cookies and marshmallows😋

Snow Day!

It was SNOWING in the younger pod today! Teachers and children alike enjoyed some very entertaining snow-play “California-style” (no gloves needed and eco-conscious!). ​​



PS- excuse the gurgling fish tank in the background…I caught this impromptu moment from my office 😉.
