Good morning everyone, we hope you’ve had a nice weekend. We were really busy this past week; the weather was so nice that we started working on cleaning a little bit the school’s garden. We took care of the weeds and dead plants and started planting some herbs for this coming spring. We would like to thank Mrs. Nevels our garden parent for helping us with this project and for starting our inside herb garden, the students had a great time planting the seeds.

As a part of our peaceful curriculum and to complement the 65 days of nonviolence season we’ve read some books that reinforced the concept of peace; among those book was a Chinese story name The Magic Brush by Kat Yeh (a story of love, family, and Chinese characters), Peace is an offering by Annette Le Box, You be me, I’ll be you by Pili Mandelbaum, On wings of love, and Whoever you are by Man Fox. We continue doing Yoga and meditation every Tuesday morning and we take every opportunity to talk about peace and kindness to our students.

We also started our solar system Unit and the students are very excited about the new works on the shelves; we will continue learning about this topic during this week as well. Our kindergarteners are learning about the Solar system more in depth; they are writing about the planets and will work on a booklet this week. The book the kindergarteners are reading during they reading time is Hanna Hibiscus.
