Post Office and Valentines

We have been celebrating Valentine's Day by sending lots of mail to our family and friends! 

These past few weeks we've been learning about the post office and what mail carriers do. We visited a post office and mailed special valentines. We have been celebrating Valentine's Day by making cards for each other. We had a party on Valentine's Day and received many valentines from our classmates. We love our friends at school!

Yummy cookies at our party! The students decorated them with valentines sprinkles and frosting.

Seeing what valentines we received from friends...

Pictures from our field trip: 

We got to try out the mail carrier's equipment.

We learned how they organize the mail and send it out on their trucks. 

The students got to help scan packages.

Everyone put their mail in the 'cage' to be sent out.

Polar Animals and Space Week

We have been learning so much about God's creation! 

These past few weeks we've been learning about animals that live in cold places: polar bears in the Arctic and penguins in Antarctica. We learned how they stay warm, eat, and take care of each other. Then we learned all about the solar system! We enjoyed learning about the planets, the sun, and astronauts.

We learned how blubber works for polar bears. We got to try it out by using a 'blubber glove' in ice water. Our hand felt warm when we had the blubber!

We made polar bears with shaving cream. It's fun to paint with messy shaving cream! 

We had a penguin day where we dressed up like penguins and acted like penguins. Here we are doing a penguin huddle to stay warm! 

We had a special penguin treat. Yummy! 

Space week was fun! We marble painted planets and painted our own space rockets.

We had a great time learning about space!

Winter Fun!

We've been having lots of winter fun! 

Our theme at school right now is about the season of winter. We've been playing with snow in our sensory table, making snowmen art projects, pretending to ice fish in our tent, and going outside to play in the snow!

We painted with ice cubes. Brrr! When the blue and red ice cubes began to melt, the color turned purple! 

It's so much fun to play on the big snow hill!

We had fun playing on the playground - it's covered in snow!

We love ice fishing! 

We got to play with shaving cream. It was a good sensory activity! We smelled it, squished it, felt it, changed its color, wrote letters in it, and tried to make a snowman. 

We made fluffy snowmen and painted snowmen at the easel. 

We sequenced how to make a snowman. It was good sequencing practice! 

Time for some more fishing!
