Wood Acres school keeps the warmth in our hearts!

Brrrrr!! With the chill in the air, we hope you are finding some warmth this weekend cozying up next to the fire place and, with some hot coco by your side.

This week, we will focus on the letters C and D. For the letter C, the children will become cookie monsters as they make their own cookies and decorate them with yummy delicious toppings. Yum Yum! For the letter D, we will observe a dinosaur hatching from a capsule and during group discussion talk about fossils. For creative movement your little ones may be a little crabby as we crawl round looking like crabs ( Snap Snap) and play Doggie Doggie Where’s My Bone. For Martin Luthier king jr, we will observe a white abd brown egg. During circle time, we will discuss how different we are on the out side and, crack it open to show how we are all the same on the inside.
