Today the younger kids learned about measurement while talking about animals and how big or small they are. They measured an elephant footprint, measured each other and sang and danced about animals. Then they colored a giraffe and gave it spots. The older kids talked about space with Ms. Jennifer. They talked about planets, constellations, NASA, and they even got to wear a space helmet!

Marshall Mitchell performed Cowboy Music for Kids today at NCTC’s Little Theater. We sang and danced to his guitar. We also learned the meaning of respect, responsibility, honesty, integrity, and courage.

Due to the huge success of our Literary LEGOs program, we started our second set of classes today. 19 kids joined Ms. Sherry to free build with LEGOs. They built awesome houses, double decker cars, a beach, and more!
