A new year brings new beginnings!! Welcome to our pod and Happy 2013. We hope that this year finds all of our local families well and healthy and may it continue throughout the year!!
Our little Peas have been soooooo busy that we forgot to blog about all the cool things happening at Peas in a Pod! So here's a rundown for your enjoyment. . .
In November, our children focused the month on practicing kindness towards their friends and sharing. I must say, our Peas pulled off the politeness without a hitch! We were all very proud of how hard they worked together to learn to use their good manners, their good choice words and their nice hands! Way to go boys and girls!! Our month was capped off by an outstanding Thanksgiving celebration - the children were so excited to show off all of the goodies their Mommies and Daddies sent in for us all to try! What a delicious way to end November. It was a most Happy Thanksgiving to all at the Pod.
December brought around lots of nervous feelings! We all worked extra hard to ensure our spots of the Nice List! Our kids worked extremely hard practicing for our very First Ever Peas in a Pod Holiday Celebration!! There wasn't a thing these children didn't do! Our Big Room was all decked out with hundreds of painted lights celebrating Hanukkah Christmas and Kwanzaa - we definitely needed to wear our shades! :~) There were presents and goodies everywhere and a stage set for the princes and princesses to show off their skills!! After spending an exhausting day primping every last detail, our Peas were the stars of the night! How exciting it was to see them shine as brightly as all the lights on our tree as they sang their way through our Holiday show to the delight of their parents!! We were soooooo proud of them all. What an amazingly talented bunch we have! THANK YOU again to our amazing parents for making it so easy to care for your children! THANK YOU to Mr. Justin for playing his guitar and singing for us all (he is available for lessons!! www.justinturk.com - check him out... just be careful NOT to open with your little Pea around - Mr. Justin is an up and coming musician as well as a music instructor!!!) and FINALLY a huge thank you to the Man-of-the-Hour who made all the kids squeal...SANTA CLAUS!!! What a wonderful way to celebrate our first Holiday season!!!
January is filled with new beginnings ...We are learning about all baby animals in different settings! We just finished learning all the super cool facts about our animal babies of the arctic - you can see them all over the school!! This week we are learning about all of our ZooBorns!! Baby Brown bears, and baby Bison so far...can't wait to see them all when we get to the Rain forest Babies and finally into the JUNGLE we will go! Wish us luck...
