It was a lovely week in YK! Our community helper focus was mail carriers and postal delivery. It was a perfect theme to go along with Valentine’s Day. The week was filled with letters, valentines, thank you cards and lots of sweets! The boys enjoyed making their own mail carrier bag and even delivering a few letters around PDS. Our love bugs were creative decorating their own valentines to someone special at home. We hope you enjoyed them! We discussed Valentine’s Day and what it means to each of us. We learned that we love because He first loved us and that is the best gift of all. Even though the candy & cards were pretty great too! Next week we will focus on police and firemen and how they protect our community. Enjoy your winter break!

Below is an update from Mrs. Christenbury, our Bible teacher.

YK classes have been learning so much as we look at some of the Superheroes of the Bible. This idea seems to have really captured their attention and engaged them in the stories. They loved learning about the "power" that God gives his helpers to do amazing things. So far, we have talked about David, Moses, Joshua, Daniel, Peter, Noah and of course, the greatest Super hero of all times, Jesus!  We talked about how God gives each of us the power to do great things, too. The Young Knight boys also love to come to the Bible room and have centers. Favorite centers include dress up, tent, blocks, plague critters and Noah's Ark. We love to sing and dance, too. Two of our favorites are below. Follow our adventures on Instagram- pdsbible

Our community helpers unit has already been so much fun! Last week we learned all about doctors and nurses and this week we began exploring dentists and oral health. The class welcomed a special visitor to speak to us about visiting the dentist office. We discussed the types of foods that make our teeth happy or sad and that visiting the dentist can be fun! The boys loved looking at their lunches and chatting about foods that made our teeth happy. We enjoyed a yummy discovery activity as we made edible mouths using apples, Wowbutter, and marshmallows. It was delicious! The boys really enjoyed painting with toothbrushes and creating a smiling boy with clean teeth during whole group time. In centers this week, the boys practiced brushing teeth with shaving cream, used their fine motor skills to thread hearts onto pipe cleaners, played dentist in our dress up center, and designed a mouth using play-doh and lima beans.

We will continue our community helpers unit next week and will be focusing on postal workers. Our Valentines Day party will be on Wednesday so please remember to bring in 15 valentines by Tuesday 2/13 for your son to pass out. Our Tuesday/Thursday friends will have a special celebration and will bring their Valentines home on Tuesday. If candy is included, please make sure that it is peanut-free. Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!

Our community helpers unit has already been so much fun! Last week we learned all about doctors and nurses and this week we began exploring dentists and oral health. The class welcomed a special visitor to speak to us about visiting the dentist office. We discussed the types of foods that make our teeth happy or sad and that visiting the dentist can be fun! For an experiment, we soaked an egg in Coke overnight and discovered that the egg had turned a yucky brown color. We discussed how this could happen to our teeth when we eat and drink sugary foods and liquids. We then brushed the eggs with a toothbrush and toothpaste and watched it turn back to its pretty white color. We enjoyed a yummy discovery activity as we made edible mouths using apples, wowbutter, and marshmallows. It was delicious and made our teeth very happy! In centers this week, the boys examined real dental X-rays, practiced brushing, and designed a model mouth using play-doh and lima beans.

We will continue our community helpers unit next week and will be focusing on postal workers. Our Valentines Day party will be on Wednesday so please remember to bring in 15 valentines by Tuesday 2/13 for your son to pass out.
