February, the beautiful month of hearts, valentines, and love is over. The children enjoyed this colorful month of pink and shades of red as they made Elmo bugs, valentines for special people they love, and decorated valentine boxes. They also made a special valentine keepers to keep their valentines in. Early in February we had lots of opportunities for learning about the sense of touch and feeling because it was also the week we learned about Caring for God's Creatures. Thanks to Jaxon and his family for bringing in their two dogs, Sierra and Marshall. Thanks to Noah for sharing his 8 pet lady bugs. Also, thanks to Emma and her mommy for sharing their adorable 5 week old puppies. Stuffed pet were brought in by McKenzie, Grace, Donavyn, Cash and Arizona. Nolan shared information about his grandparents' dog. Thanks to everyone who shared!

Our pajama party was a lot of fun. It was a fun and relaxing day. The children had a blast. (Teachers too!)The boys and girls enjoyed the Valentine's Party thoroughly. We played games, played postman with our valentines and enjoyed yummy treats.

During February we also observed the birthdays of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The children learned some interesting facts about these great men. We also discussed patriotism and flags. We also discussed presidents and we marched to the tune of Yankee Doodle as they wore their three cornered hats and waved Betsy Ross flags. If your children show a new interest in money it may be because we spent time looking at different coins and bills, finding different presidents.

This week we will be began our circus activities. After discussing the circus we'll begin learning about different animals, where they come from and if we'd find them in a circus. The children made elephants and lions which will decorate our ceilings and walls. They painted cardboard boxes to be worn at the circus, such animals as the lion, tiger, bear, elephant etc. We have several circus games the children will enjoy and lots of circus activities. Each class is continuing working on letters and sounds. They are learning the correct way to make their upper case letters. We have also spent some time working on our names.

We heard the story of "Jesus was a Carpenter," and "The Wedding of Cana" was one of our Bible Stories this month. We also heard the story of Jesus Healing Jairus' Daughter and Jesus calming a scary storm.
