Jane Goodall

We got to learn about one of my favorites this week...Jane Goodall!  We learned that she was brave and went to Africa to be a scientist when girls weren't allowed to do things like that.  She was also very patient and smart and waited and waited for the chimpanzees that she was studying to feel comfortable with her.  She taught us so much about chimps!  We got to be chimpanzees this week!  We also write about Jane Goodall and made "termites on a stick" for cooking club to pretend we were using tools like the chimpanzees do!

Brilliant Breakfasts

Dr. Katie was in again this week to teach us about the importance of breakfast!  We learned that eating a healthy breakfast (without sugar...yikes!) helps us to learn more and grow stronger.  We made parfaits with sugar free yogurt, fruit, and sugar free granola!  The kids loved it!

Martin Luther King, Jr.

We learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. this week and his message of peace and love and his famous words: "I have a dream".  Today the kiddos wanted to write him a letter!  It turned out really sweet!

Holiday Traditions Around the World- The Pickle

We did a German tradition is class yesterday!  I hid a Christmas pickle and the kids had to find it!  The kiddo who found it got a prize that she shared with others which was super sweet!  AND, because this class loves them so much...we ate pickles!!

Holiday traditions around the world- St. Nick

We celebrated St. Nick's day like they do in Iceland!  We left our shoes outside while we napped to see if St. Nick would bring us treats (or sticks, coal or a potato if we were naughty!)  And he brought treats!!  And the kids loved sleeping in their socks!
