Aloha! We loved learning about ocean animals this week. We made sea turtles out of egg cartons, jelly fish out of paper bags, and octopi with 8 legs using cheerios. The boys loved reading stories about the sea life found in the ocean and watching videos of different animals during lunch. Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle was a class favorite. We also really had fun dancing together to beach music. We enjoyed some tasty treats during discovery this week including beach pudding and rainbow Goldfish (which we graphed before eating). The highlight of the week was our "beach party" on Friday in our courtyard. We opened up the water table, let the boys "clean the school" with squirt bottles, enjoyed the bubble machine, and drew shapes with sidewalk chalk.
We look forward the next few days with your boys. Monday is our last full day of school and the last day you will need to send water bottles, lunches, and tote bags. You will not need to send anything with your child on Wednesday, unless he is attending aftercare. On Tuesday, we will meet at the Children's Museum at 9:15 for our class party. There will be no school before or after. On Wednesday, we will dismiss at 10:15. Have a wonderful weekend!
