Welcome to the new students in our Kindergarten Enrichment Program! These students arrived on the District 57 Bus after their morning Kindergarten class. Everyone was excited for the first day!
Session Three starts Monday, July 21. Cooking and Water continue, and we add three new camps: Science, Amazing Race and Passport to Fun.
The Blue Class is anxiously awaiting the arrival of our butterflies. Over the past few weeks, we watched the caterpillars grow and become chrysalises. They are now beginning to hatch! We planted a garden containing sunflowers, grass, and a bean plant. We also created all the insects to go in it!
Also: Check out our bodies (we measured, traced our bodies, then designed, cut out and painted them) hanging in the hall outside of the church
Summer School forms have gone home... this year's theme is about Noah and his ark. Students will do art and science projects about rainbows. Each child will complete their own Rainbow Book to take home. We are limited to 40 total students for this session, so please make sure to turn your registration form in early. You can find a copy of the registration for summer school here. Lunch Bunch and Extended Day Programs are available throughout Summer School for an additional charge.

We have started our unit on Construction in the yellow class. We were architects and drew plans to build a rocket. We are painting the huge boxes and putting it together after break. Our letter of the week was U. We laid on our back under the table. We looked up and colored the letter U.

We just finished up a unit on healthy bodies. We learned about keeping our teeth healthy by remembering the number 2. Brush 2x a day for 2 minutes and visit the dentist 2x a year. We talked about healthy foods and exercise. The unit ended with the children making their own first aid kits. Next week starts construction. On a side note some of us built a really cool robot named Wobbly…see our picture!!
This week we have been learning about our 5 senses. We played Sound Bingo, did some taste testing, walked in our stocking feet on different textures in the block room, sniffed a variety of scents & painted blindfolded. Highlighting our week, we led a blindfolded partner around the classroom using verbal cues and holding hands to help our friend navigate the room. We experienced what it would be to be without our sense of sight. Check out the photos. Also this week we traced our bodies and began painting them to look like us.
Coming up…..Construction. Tune in to see what structures we will build
