Eagles Exploration and Learning

What a great last two weeks of school we had.  We celebrated four birthdays, got to do our last Story Drama outside, went on a nature walk, attended the school Talent show (the Eagles first experience of a school assembly) and of course there was the Graduation!

We were so proud of our Eagle students at the Graduation.  They worked so hard to prepare for the ceremony and performed beautifully!

Last Week as Chickadees!

15 Jun

This year has passed by so fast, it’s hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of school. This week has been packed full of painting, playing, silliness, building, play-dough, music, and reading. It has been such a pleasure to get to know these children and to watch them learn and grow. The Chickadee classroom has been filled with love, friendships, and laughter this year. We will miss the Chickadees so much and we are so thankful for the truly great year with them.

Fun in the Sun + the Classroom!

8 Jun

It has been a great week in the Chickadee class, filled with lots of fun activities both in the classroom and out. On Monday, it was so beautiful out we decided to take another walk in Interlaken Park! This time we went further and went up lots of stairs! The Chickadees did a great job with all the walking and listening to the Morahs. They loved exploring, running, and touching the trees!

We were so excited to have some really sunny days this week and enjoyed playing outside on our playground! The Chickadees play imaginative games (usually involving super heroes), hunt for treasure, and race around on bikes and cars. We also got to do more water play this week! The Chickadees love painting with water, especially on the climber!

And of course we had a great week playing in the classroom too! Since today was rainy, we got to do lots of indoor art activities, including painting and cutting!

This week was our last day of My Gym. It was a great time and although we were sad to say goodbye to Moreh Ryan, we still had so much fun. The Chickadees played with balls, noodles, puppets, and even got to wear different kinds of animal tails! We are so thankful to Moreh Ryan for the fantastic year of My Gym!

Since it was rainy today, we decided to try a new project- Ooblek! Ooblek is a mixture of cornstarch and water and is very fun (and messy)! Every Chickadee was willing to try it, some didn’t care for it but others loved it and could have kept playing with it for much longer. We added a few drops of water color for the Chickadees to mix. They did a great job sharing their trays of ooblek with their partners!

It has been a fun week with this kids! We can’t believe that there’s only one week left until summer! We will miss these guys!

Eagles Exploration and Learning

SUNSHINE!

The Eagles spent lots of time playing in the sandbox and at the water table, and painting with water outside on our warm, sunny days this week. Fortunately, the EC playground doesn’t get too much sun, so shade was always an option.

Spring Birthdays-Continued!

We celebrated Eliana’s 5th birthday (a little early) this week. Happy (almost) birthday!

Judaic Studies

In honor of Yom Yerushelayim, Morah Chani set up a shuk (Israeli market) with little chatchkes to purchase. Each child was given tickets and an Israeli coin to spend. She also prepared a falafel lunch, which could be purchased with one ticket or coin. Some children saved the extra “money” to get falafel at lunch, while others chose to use all of it at the shuk. Once lunchtime came around those children decided to return a toy in exchange for getting falafel. A good lesson in saving!
