Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful winter vacation with lots of happy memories. The children have been full of stories about their adventures over break.

We begin our weather unit in January. The children explore winter weather patterns through stories, songs, and outdoor observations. We also discuss seasons, how they change where we live, and how they are different in other places around the world.

The gumdrop tree blooms as well! This is a magical tree that only blooms at BCNS and only in January. Each day, the children are invited to pick a gumdrop off the tree and share a special wish they have. As you can probably imagine, some of these wishes can be very entertaining!
 
Gumdrop Tree (by Teacher Kari)
We have a little gumdrop tree
Its flowers are so sweet,
First, I make a special wish
Then I choose a piece to eat.
Which color shall I choose today?
Green, pink, white, or blue?
How does the gumdrop tree keep blooming?
And will my wish come true?
