Our Story: Learning Labs

Its beginning to feel like the holidays are upon us as students have been discovering the scents of peppermint and evergreen in their water play and play dough sensory exploration. Pinecones, evergreen sprigs, and cranberries are adding to this experience! Create learning labs at the house over winter break for your child to continue the exploration at home! An impromptu art project turned into one of our favorite so far this year. Students colored simple triangles and then used various sized circles as stampers to add a new dimension to the trees! They came out so bright and creative that we are so excited to share them with you! If you find your child has been signing away to Jingle Bells lately you can blame that one on us. It has become a favorite as we sing along and play our jingle bells! In music appreciation we have started to learn about orchestra with focus on The Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint Saens. Each piece in the collection features a different animal and we are focusing on the tone of the instruments and the feeling that the music can evoke. Students have already realized that a piano can sound light and upbeat or dark and ominous!

For the Holidays!

Dear Santa Baby and TerraNichol Parents,

The Teaching Team at TerraNichol Academy has been very nice this school year. As well as Stella Bunny and Valentino. We have spread love, kindness, happiness and patience. We have worked as a team to support and aid our environment by providing our students the education to raise the Earth and not hurt the earth. We stay healthy and eat our growing vegetables and food. We have provided an enriching, creative, safe and nurturing learning lab environment for our students to thrive in their developmental skills. Most of all we love what we do, shaping minds of our future citizens of the world.

We hope you will spread the love and happiness back to us this holiday season by providing some of the items on our AMAZON wish list. We would rather give back to our learning environment with new materials then to have gifts for ourselves. Look even Stella Bunny and Valentino have a Santa Wish list!
