Northland Pines Montessori Learning Center

Week of Feb. 8-12, 2016

*We learned about the animals and people of Asia. We also learned the names of some of the countries in Asia.

*MONDAY- We learned about Chinese New Year (we will be studying aspects of this holiday all month and incorporating some of what we learn into our Breakfast and Scram at the end of the month)

*TUESDAY- We learned about Fat Tuesday and the background of Mardi Gras. (Thanks to Aeden for the beads and goodies he brought back from New Orleans.) The masks we made were great for our mini-parade through the school.

*WEDNESDAY- 5K students celebrated their 100th day of school- great fun with MANY activities that centered around the number 100.

*THURSDAY- The NPHS Musical Annie was amazing! Great job by the performers and our students were a great audience.

*FRIDAY- We were able to practice the virtue of LOVE when sharing Valentine cards.

SEESAW- we started working with an App called Seesaw which is a digital portfolio. I sent a QR code and link with information to access your child's portfolio. Let me know if you have any questions.

Ms. Karla surprised us with so many great new works. Ask your child about something they worked on.
