The classroom has been transformed into a winter wonderland! The students walked in Monday morning to discover that the holidays had taken over. It is always so exciting for everyone when new works appear on the shelves. It brings so much joy to both us and the children as their curiosity guides them to re-explore all the shelves.
In geography we have traveled across the globe to Antarctica. The children have really enjoyed learning about this cold continent and how different it is from North America. As the month progresses, we will be learning all about the scarce number of animals and plants that are able to live in the harsh climate of this continent and explore how they survive!
Outside of the classroom, this week brought us a special visitor: Aris, Officer Felicia, and Officer Matt! Aris is a two year old German Shepherd from Slovakia who is training to be a part of the K-9 Unit in the Newtown Police Department. Officer Felicia spent time on Tuesday to talk to the children about how Aris and the rest of the department are working hard every day to keep us all safe! We even got to learn some of the German language they use to train Aris and watch as he listened to commands. The children were ecstatic to watch Aris work.
Thank you Officer Felicia, Officer Matt, and Aris, as well as the rest of the Newtown Police Department, for going out every day to protect us and our community.
