We had a wonderful trip to the Paramount Theater today! The children were mesmerized by the artistry of the lighted characters of The Ugly Duckling. It was engaging and entertaining. The actors introduced themselves at the end and gave the children a look at their costumes and shared that most of them were made from common materials. Hmmm...sounds like a fun challenge for the future!
The children enjoyed valentine snacks later in the day and reading their valentine cards. It was so great to watch them pass their cards out to their friends in the morning. They were very proud to be able to recognize and read the names they wrote!
The picture at the top of this page is a shot of the paperwhite bulbs we have been growing in our classroom. There is also a bit of the red amaryllis included in the picture. We started growing bulbs the week we got back from winter vacation and the children have enjoyed observing, writing about and caring for the bulbs. When you come for Open House on March 3rd you will get to see the digital book each child has made about his/her bulb.
