I’ve discovered my son loves to shovel. This works very well in my favour, given the dump of snow we had this past week! He and his buddies are all about playing outside, making tracks and snow castles and sledding and getting otherwise covered in the white stuff. I say anything that wears off that pent-up pre-Christmas energy is a great thing! We’ll continue to celebrate the cold and snow this week (Dec. 2 – 6) at Kidsplace with our Polar Animals theme!
For some fun Polar Animals websites to visit, and a bit of info about our upcoming Christmas concerts, just read on!
Check out some “cool” Arctic and Antarctic facts at Canadian Geographic Kids or some amazing animals as they change colour for the winter season at National Geographic Kids. See Polar Bears galore at Polar Bears International and should you ever want to visit them yourself…check out Canada Polar Bears.com. And just because they’re funny (even if they aren’t too “Arctic”) some Penguins of Madagascar games!
SAVE THE DATE!
Mark your calendars…only a few weeks to go until our annual Christmas program! The kids are already hard at work practicing their songs. The Tuesday/Thursday programs will take place December 19 during regular class time, and the Monday/Wednesday/Friday program will take place December 20 during regular class time.
Our Christmas program is quite low key. It is held in our classroom (with a bit of furniture rearranging!) during regular class time. We do welcome immediate family to attend, however, due to our limited space, we can’t accommodate a lot of extra people. We will have some Christmas treats following the presentation.
Have a great week!
