Our Theme: Happy, Healthy Hearts, Lunar New Year and Groundhog Day

This week we will have fun getting ready for Valentine’s Day. We will discuss it’s meaning and talk about the people we love and why. We will focus on keeping our hearts healthy by “getting them pumping” with lots of moving and exercising, as well as exploring healthy eating choices.  We have some great Valentine’s crafts and learning games planned, even a Valentine’s science experiment! We will have our class celebration on Monday, 2/14, all are invited of course. (The children are encouraged to bring little Valentine’s for their classmates and will enjoy delivering these to the class on our party day. Please see the letter and pictures that were sent home. Also on our agenda, we explore Lunar New Year and the special traditions associated with this day, and Groundhog Day will also be introduced and “acted out” in class. What a busy week!
