Today we celebrated Father's Day! Dads and kids went into the Kindergarten room, had breakfast, made crowns, and took photos at our photobooth. The kids made a sign and paper chains for decoration! Teacher Linette brought in her fujifilm camera with instant fim to take home for souveniers. Thank you to all the fathers and father figures who help our children grow.

The children love listening to music and dancing during outside time. We call it a dance party! Today, Russell and Thomas were showing Aoife and Calleen their best dance moves. Aoife suggested we play freeze dance and if you move after the music stops you're out! The children loved hearing familiar songs from some of their favorite movies. They listened to the beat of the music and put their whole body into it! Dancing is a great way to get our bodies moving and a fun way to work on our gross motor skills.

As the end of the year approaches, the children are busy working on GRADUATION activities. Today they decorated name tags with drawings, words and stickers! Mairead and Sergio shared a little about their drawings and gave one another suggestions about what to draw next. Other children worked on making paper chains to decorate the gym for our graduation. Creating paper chains requires a lot of persistence, hand eye coordination, and strong fine motor skills. We can't wait to celebrate the end of our 2016-2017 school year with everyone!!
