Hello Magee families!

February flew by with the fun things we did. The children who were with us on Valentine’s Day had a blast discovering their secret valentine. First, everyone created a heart valentine. Next, everyone picked a sealed envelope with their valentine’s photo in it. They discovered who their valentine was by giving clues to the class about their valentine. Then they exchanged their heart with their valentine.

For American Heart Association month, we learned healthy habits contribute to a healthy heart. HANK the Heart breaks it down: H stands for Heart; A stands for Activity; N stands for Nutrition; and K stands for Kindness. Click here for more learning about HANK the Heart We played heart health bingo. We walked/ran up hills, had a dance party, drank water, practiced deep breathing, and talked about a good night’s rest. We tried a green pepper and more children than not liked it! We were able to find our pulse and feel our heartbeat.

Dorian is a new friend at 4K Wrap. Dorian has two big brothers and two cats. Her favorite food is cake pops, and her favorite snack is candy. Dorian’s favorite movie is “Frozen,” and she likes watching mix-up machine videos. We can’t wait to find out more about Dorian’s interests.

Read Across America Week is celebrated nationwide to promote literacy and encourage the love of reading. We are going to read together as a class, with a partner, and independently. On March 4th and 5th we are going to build forts and make cozy spots to read. They can bring in their favorite books! They can also bring in their own blankets, flashlights, stuffed animals, and pillows. Please label items. I find labeling it with painter’s tape works great. It’s easy to put on and take off.

Thank you,
Ms. Olivia

 

Hello Magee families,

During February, we enjoyed doing Valentine’s Day-themed activities. Candy hearts stacking challenge was our favorite activity. For this building challenge, children had to stack as many candy hearts as they could in a singular tower. In Before School, Kayla R. had the tallest tower with 11 candy hearts. In After School, Mila H. had the tallest tower with 10 candy hearts. I loved seeing the determination of all the kids who participated in this challenge.

In March, we will begin working on a long-term project. In the past we have completed a community service project for the local animal shelter, Human Animal Welfare Society. For this service project, we will focus on giving back to the Magee school community. We are planning on making garden decorations to donate to the school garden. These garden decorations will include wind chimes, birdhouses, and painted rocks. Before and After School programs will have the opportunity to partake in this service project.

Spring is around the corner and Daylight Saving Time will give us more time to spend outside! We are looking forward to this change and being able to run around and play outside. During our morning program, we will try to get outside. If we are unable to go outside, we will use the gym. In After School, we will go outside every afternoon with weather permitting.

If you have any questions or concerns, you may reach me via email or site cell phone.
