The children in our before and after school care program worked really hard creating their city in the form of art!
Our idea for this final month of the school year was to bring recyclable materials to the preschool in place of toys, letting each child’s creative imagination run wild.
We had no idea how many benefits this would have. Besides being lots of fun, the children have gained skills such as problem-solving, creativity, curiosity and so much more. We look forward to the adventures to come these next few weeks!
We finished our nutrition course here at the preschool with our friend Freddie Fruits and Vegetables. We did this in various ways, such as making art with fruits & veggies, cooking applesauce, making carrots and lemon, eating some lemons (then turning them into lemonade for improved taste!), and finally planting some veggies in the garden that we will check on after Spring Break!
We had a surprise thanks to our wonderful BMP mom, with LOTS of pink in support of anti-bullying efforts!
Freshly fallen snow always gives us an opportunity for science (inside the school and out!), along with a whole lot of fun!
We had a wonderful Lunar New Year celebration thanks to a former BMP mom who brought a storytelling dragon to share about the new year. More exciting for the children was when the dragon gave each of them a lucky red envelope with a treat!
The children were measuring shadows when we were returning from the park, so we continued the discovery in the classroom!
