America - Summer School Age
|Posted by [email protected] on June 30, 2022 at 5:45 PM|
This week's theme is America the Beautiful and we made a picture of our flag, made fireworks using paint, drew a picture of the Statue of Liberty, and we did fuse beads.. We talked about what we will be doing for the 4th of July; some friends said they are spending time with their families or going to see the fireworks. The children made paper wands, owls, fake money, origami animals, etc. They have been busy bees playing and creating items! We have been reading books silently or as a group during nap time so they we do not disturb the other children who are taking naps in other classrooms. We have been talking about different things about the 4th of July and I told the children that there will be a parade and our center is participating in the parade; some said that they are either participating or watching the parade. However, they said they are very excited that we have the day off because they did not want to miss the fireworks.
Mud Day was a success! The children had fun playing in the water and/or mud with their siblings or friends from other classrooms. It was a little bit cold but that did not stop them from having fun. The best part was ice cream! The Summer School Age children were so nice to let the little ones go first to get ice cream! I was so proud of them because I did not tell them to let the little ones go. They were so gentle around the little ones and helped as needed.
We did not have too many field trips due to being off Monday but we went to Weaving Supply Co and the children made terrariums and they had so much fun creating their own terrariums!
As a reminder, please make sure your children have sunscreen prior to arrival and they have comfortable shoes. We will reapply sunscreen while on the field trip. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me!
