Winter Brain Break


Greetings!

Happy Holey Donuts and Berry Ice Cream!

We kicked off the holidays with sweet treats and a classic movie, Snow White, which we recently came across in 26 Fairmount Ave, Tomie DePaola's story about a family event. (The kids' family stories are up in the background.)



Winter Break Journal

The kids received a tiny notebook to keep track of cool events during break. Upon return in January the notes will help each compose an essay about their time off from school.  However, using the notebook is optional. Some kids may (or claim to) remember well enough without it.


Puzzles

The kids love these brain exercising puzzles, so I suggest you consider puzzle books for gift giving. In the meantime, they have a few in their backpacks to solve. 



"Hey Pizza Man!"

By the way, here's a brain break favorite from GoNoodle.


If you're ever at a dinner table and you mention "purple stew" (another brain break favorite) your child might explode with excitement.

Happy New Year!

Of course there was more to our week, but it's the holidays, and time for more donuts. See you in the New Year.

Stay safe and have fun!

Outdoorsiness

Greetings! 

Extraordinary

Well, our week included the annual Winter Show... 





















...and a wonderful Q&A with a visiting filmmaker.



But the big event was probably outdoors at Kledu Farm. 


I'm going to leave the details to your third grader to explain. I'm beat! I'll admit it. Enjoy the photos and talk.  






























Teak
Have a nice weekend,
Don
