Valentine's Day fun in the snow!

Valentine's Day turned out to be such a beautiful day outside, and K3 made the most of their time playing in the snow during lunch recess!  The snow "mountain" has very much turned into a MOUNTAIN!  The scholars had a blast climbing and sliding on the snow in the Valentine's Day sunshine!


Mr. Flower visits from the UEC!

K3 had a special visit today from Mr. Flower!  Mr. Flower works at the Urban Ecology Center of Milwaukee, and today he came to Catholic East to teach K3 scholars about some of the ways animals act during Winter.  We learned about hibernation, what animals eat, and what animals have on their bodies to keep them warm.  It is always wonderful to see Mr. Flower, and we can't wait for him to visit again later in the school year!

Healthy Food Week!

By Ms. Piotrowski

This week, K3 is learning all about nutrition and healthy foods!  Many of our Learning Centers have fun activities that help them to explore this theme through play!  

The sensory table is filled with "Alphabet Soup" this week!  Scholars search for letters and healthy vegetables in the noodles, to make a bowl of yummy soup!

Mrs. Hirsch helps Gavin sort pictures of real foods into "healthy" and "not healthy" groups.  We talked together that "not healthy" foods are OK to eat sometimes, but not every day!

Dramatic Play was turned into our very own PIZZERIA!  Scholars get to be workers and chefs, taking orders and making yummy pizza for the customers!  There's even our very own brick oven!  This center is sure to be a hit this week!

It's finally Winter!

K3 had the best time celebrating our Winter weather inside and outside of our classroom!  We had a so much fun pretending to work in our hot cocoa shop, serving yummy hot cocoa and cookies and donuts to customers!

The sensory table had pretend snow in it!

But the MOST fun was playing in the real snow we got outside!  The scholars had an absolute blast playing outside, and their smiling faces melted the cold away!

Marshmallow Painting!

Today scholars got to use pretend snowballs (marshmallows) to paint snowmen!  We will add all of the snowman details next week, but got to enjoy a yummy marshmallow at snack this afternoon after our painting!
