The month of February brings thoughts of hearts, love, and friendships to BCNS. We build upon the love and care that the children experience at home and our primary themes for the month are bears, family, and friendships.
Try asking your child a range of questions from easier to harder in order to build confidence and challenge his/her growing mind. For example: Do you hear birds chirping in the day or night? What other sounds do you hear during the day? The night? Why do you think you hear those sounds at that time? What do you like better – day or night? Why? Can you think of other opposites?
Nighttime Opposites (by Teacher Kari)
When the sun goes down and the moon goes up,
And our bellies are full and fed,
My family says to me softly/loudly,
“It’s time to go to bed!”
I put my favorite jammies on,
My left slipper, then my right,
I brush my top and bottom teeth
‘till they sparkle oh so bright!
Then I read a bedtime story,
From the first page to the last,
I close my eyes…then open them,
When another night has passed.
Each class will end the week before Valentine’s Day with special snacks, stories and activities that allow us to celebrate the special friendships we share at BCNS.
