Furry School Students Present Continent Program
So proud of them...and also relieved that it's one thing checked off our to-do list! After the performance we let the parents take their children home with them if they wished, which was a great idea! I came back to school with one kiddo who at the time was a bit upset, but we had a left over donut from "Mornings with Mom" (mom's get to come to school to have a donut and juice with their kiddo before the day starts), another class invited him to come over for Walking Tacos and then we took down Antarctica (on the wall), sorted all of those penguins and ended the day by playing on the iPad. He was pretty chipper by the end of the day.
So once Antarctica was taken down, I remembered that we had created some art a few weeks ago after we read Olivia. I had purchased a "Frame Pad" by Melissa and Doug and let the kiddos create! I didn't give them a prompt or a theme...I just turned on some quiet music and let them go. They really got into it and spent a lot of time on them. They persuaded me to have an art contest, so I'm going to work one into our last 18 days of school...somehow! :)
Just an FYI...The Electric Company has been my saving grace! Not only is it totally educational and fun, but the kiddos are glued to it! They have some episodes on their website that you can watch, but I went ahead and just paid for Volume 1 on iTunes so it's ready to go when needed. Just thought I'd share since it seems like we're all in the same boat with children who are ready to be done for the year! :)
