February Plans

IMG_7620

February is here! The house is filled with hearts, the Olympics started this past week and the ground is once again covered in fresh snow……this all makes me happy.  Our main theme this month is the Winter Olympics and it has been a lot of fun so far.  We have Winter Olympic books and movies (can’t wait to watch Cool Running!!), lots of learning activities ready and a friendly family medal competition in place.  The other main focus of the month is the Winter Edition of the Z News.  Z has already designed his layout and written his first story.  He is really excited about this edition and has invited his friends to be involved too!

Here is what else we have going on this month…..
