Two eyes, a nose, and a mouth, they're the first things that we see
On millions and millions of faces, from Tibet to Tennessee.

This week was the REAL Valentine's Day and the girls learned this precious song in music with Mrs. Smith! We wanted to share it with you!
There were lots of heart activities going on around the room this week, too! We have been talking about what it means to be a good friend and how that makes your heart feel. The girls made patterns with hearts, counted hearts, painted hearts, and talked about hearts. We introduced the idea of things our hearts feel and discussed A LOT of emotions. Ask your girls how their heart is feeling.
They have learned lots of new words this week!
Girls are telling stories all over this place! They are collaborating! They are creating! They are practicing their voices! They are growing! They are learning! They are excited to share their ideas!
This is the castle.
The horse lives there.
She eats the grass off the tree by the tent.
The horse is hiding so the people won't find him.
He's watching the people slide down the slide.
The people are scared, but not the horse.
The horse goes into her secret hideout.
It's in her castle.
The girls have been working so hard on writing their names! They are so excited and so proud to show us when they do! They are getting better at recognizing their own names and those of their friends. Of course, their names are important to them! They want people to know their names and remember their names. It's part of who they are!
As we explored their names and the beginning letters of their names, the girls made a story with beautiful and creative illustrations.
