New Year’s Kick-Off-Sykesville-
Our new school year is off to a great start!!! Our classroom shelves were filled with so many fun lessons about Fall, butterflies, Spain and art. We received Monarch caterpillars and watched them grow and feed on milkweed. We are eagerly waiting for the butterflies to come out of their chrysalises!!! We learned about the life cycle of butterflies, as well as the names of their body parts. We also painted paper butterflies to decorate our classrooms! Did we mention about the awesome gravity paintings and bubble wrap prints we made?!!! To celebrate our garden and the Fall season, we had Flamenco dancers perform at our school! In the classroom, we learned all about Flamenco dancing and Spain. We got to listen and dance to Flamenco music as we dressed as Flamenco dancers. We decorated Flamenco hats and fans, colored Spanish flags, and made some delicious cheese Empanadas and Rosquillas (Spanish donuts with anise):). Happy Birthday to Aurelio, Allison, Domenic and Nicholas:).
