Penguin Doctors

The penguins have expressed an interest in learning about doctors and the human body, so our classroom has transformed accordingly! We have a medical school where students can earn their degree, a hospital where they can practice medicine, and pharmaceutical laboratory where they can make prescription drugs.MED SCHOOL HOSPITAL

Welcome to the Magical Zoo

We got up to the covered courts today and discovered that it had turned into a zoo! Coach Nat sprinkled some magic on us and we transformed into different animals at each station. We practiced a variety of locomotive skills as well as discussed different properties of the shapes our bodies make. PE Magical Zoo

Brave with Books

On this Monday, the children had a special challenge in the library. They needed to find a book about a topic that they normally do not check out. So, for example, some of the superhero fans branched out into pirate search and spy books.

The Stray DogFor our class story, we read The Stray Dog by Marc Simont. This book is distinguished by a Caldecott Honor Medal, which is an award given to children’s books that have exceptional illustrations. We talked about what it meant for a book to be awarded a medal and how that might be one criteria you look for when choosing a book to take home.

The children were very brave in exploring different books and taking chances in checking out stories they might not normally have looked at.

-Building obstacle courses

-Playing sword fights and chase

-Buring each other’s feet and hands in the sand

-Pretending to be ninja dogs

-Reading library books and magazines

-Training acrobatically

-Playing superhero chase
