The past month we celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month at the Early Childhood Center. We learned a new Spanish word each day and together as a class created the flag of El Salvador, Colombia, Chile and Honduras. We also read the book "Silly Billy" by Anthony Browne and created our very own worry doll.

Buenos tardes! Our Spanish word of the day in honor of Hispanic Heritage month is buenos tardes which means good afternoon. Today we are also learning about the color pink! You can see the many shades of pink incorporated into the children's outfits as they happily play outside.
Each day we focus on a new color. Today we learned about the color green by wearing green clothing to school. The children in room 4 were surprised to mix blue and yellow paint to create green!
Today we celebrated Patriot Day at the Early Childhood Center. We waved our flags high in remembrance of those who lost their lives 20 years ago on September 11th. One way we can honor those American families is to be kind to one another and always lend a helping hand . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwHVhX5cwpI
