Photos from the week…
Toddler 1 Open Class
Thank you to our families who joined us in Toddler 1’s classroom last week. The children were so excited to show their parents and loved ones what they’ve been working on!
Hanukkah – latkes
In Toddler 2 we are learning about winter celebrations. On Friday, we concluded our week of Hanukkah learning with latkes (potatoes pancakes) and applesauce. Our reaction “more please!”
Practical Life Skills in action!
It’s just absolutely lovely to see how independent Casa 2 students are. Spill or dirt on the floor… no problem. The students independently take care of it without prompting. We want to thank Olivia P.’s family for donating an extra cleaning set. It’s being used all the time!
Mindful movement in Casa
Waterloo Casa enjoyed a beautiful yoga and meditation class at the gym on Friday.
Lower El Timeline of Life
Some of Lower El 2’s student are working on the Timeline of Life.
