We had a great first week of Summer Academy! This week we explored animals! We read many great animal books, but my favorite from the week was called Lion’s Lunch by Fiona Tierney. We dressed up in animal masks and had animal puppet shows. We looked on the globe and talked about different kinds of animals that live in different parts of the world. We created art with scraps of paper and sticker eyes, we painted, stamped, and made art with animal stickers. We also practiced our writing with the dry erase boards and practiced letter recognition with our letter stamps. We welcomed 5 new friends this week… we are so happy to have you all! Next week our theme is Kids in the Kitchen, get ready to do some cooking!!
