Dear Families,

We learned a lot about penguins the last few weeks! The children did penguin art projects, parts of the penguin cards, counted with penguins, and did a special science project where they created snow and used penguin figures to play in the snow. We also located Antarctica on the globe and discussed the weather and features on that continent. For the first half of March we will focus on St Patrick’s Day and Ireland, and the arrival of spring.

Warmest regards,

Ms. Jess, Mrs. Pascal, Ms. Nancy & Ms. Dionisia
