We have been studying Traditions in our Unique Learning Curriculum. We are learning about the traditions that many families celebrate.. As a part of that,  our pretend play is also focusing on holiday traditions. We have made pretend cookies for Santa and we will be making real ones and decorating them. We have decorated our classroom tree and will be wrapping presents soon too. Our book group story is The Gingerbread Man and we are sequencing the characters and events that happen along the way in the story. We love to listen to and sing The Learning Station Christmas songs for both movement and music!  We have special homemade playdough we mixed ourselves that we are using with cookie cutters.

Ask us about our field trip!! It was great! We visited Dahnke’s Tree Farm. There we met our friend, Mr. Doug. We saw Rudolph, the oldest reindeer with really big antlers, along with four more reindeer. We got to feed them and feel their thick fur.  We earned our Reindeer Flight School noses. We then went on her reindeer express train ride and a REAL sleigh ride (pulled by the tractor). We even sang two Chistmas carols! We made a neat tree craft with Mr. Doug that we put stickers on a added a pretty string to hang it on a tree. We had a magical time and loved our field trip!
We will dismiss early at 2:00 p.m. on both December 20 and 21. The buses will run according to home district schedules. Chriatmas break for the students will be December 22 to January 7. They will return on January 8.
Sending you the warmest wishes of this special season.

Solar System

We have been studying the solar system. We cut out a new planet each day, add to our solar system, learn facts about the planet, and sing the planet song.

We have also been experiencing quiet rest time where we calm our minds and bodies while listening to a story. We find comfortable seating and listen to our story. We are learning it is important to quiet our minds and practice our breathing.
