“Take a Look, We’ve Read Some Books!”

Oh, the places they’ll go!

Students at The Little School of Waldwick celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss with a pajama party and a delicious green eggs and ham lunch! Oh, and a quick tip: We didn’t use green food coloring to make the eggs green for our Little Schoolers. The eggs’ green color comes from puréed organic spinach!

Our fun day was filled with whimsical rhymes from Dr. Seuss books and striped cat hats! Students practiced rhyming words by constructing “word families” during language arts. Students even measured their own feet after reading Seuss’ The Foot Book. A great time was had by all. Wearing pajamas and tall hats – it was a ball!

Winter Learnings: Teddy Bear Hibernation & Snow Art!

Students at The Little School are learning all about winter and hibernation! We asked our students to bring in a teddy, and together they put their little teddy friends into a cozy handmade hibernation cave. They will emerge this spring, just in time for The Little School annual teddy picnic, where students welcome back their little furry friends into the warmer weather.

Our little school students also explored snow art the Monday after the big blizzard! They spray painted snow mounds and made a mosaic of colorful, frosty art. They had such a blast!

The Little School Holiday Show 2015!

The Little School put on the annual holiday show which included a very special “It’s a Small World” theme, where our students wore native dress in celebration of cultures and religions from around the world. Our students also performed holiday classics and did their own impressive interpretations of ‘Magical Menorah Candles’, ‘Chorus of Christmas Trees’, ‘Kwanzaa Kinara Candles’, and our very own ‘Magnificent Manger Scene’, among many others. Even Santa joined us at the end of the performance to celebrate, take photos, and share gifts! What a special performance and afternoon it was.

Thank you for all who came to celebrate with us and a round of applause for our Little School performers who did such an amazing job!

Below is a collage, link to full holiday show album, and video. Enjoy it all and happy new year!

Yesterday, Thursday, October 29th, our Little School students along with their family and friends celebrated our Annual Halloween Parade and Spooktacular!

We had the sweetest, spookiest parade of princesses, superheroes and even some gouls! Afterwards, our little ones performed a medley of super spooky songs, we then picked pumpkins from our very own Little School patch, decorated them, and had lunch together.

What a wonderful way to celebrate with our Little School family. Thank you to all who joined us!

Please enjoy the photos and videos below and have a safe and fun Halloween!

Celebrating Johnny Appleseed and the Fall Season!

What a wonderful back to school season it’s been so far!

We began our apple theme earlier this month with a lesson on legendary pioneer Johnny Chapman, who was born on September 26, 1774. Johnny was known to many as Johnny Appleseed, and was a pioneer who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and West Virginia. He became an American legend due to his kind and generous ways, and his leadership in conservation.

We celebrated Johnny’s birthday on Friday, September 25th with a ton of apple fun that included apple picking, tasting and graphing our favorite apples. We had lots of fun learning activities and singing about Johnny Appleseed!

Here are some photo highlights below!

Little School Mother’s Day Tea Party!

 

unnamed copy

The Little School graduating class treated their mothers to an elegant brunch and performance.

They sang songs filled with words of love for all their mothers to show their appreciation. Our students created special handmade hats and necklaces for the mommies to wear during the party. The walls were adorned with decorations made by the children, including a hand-drawn portrait of their mom! After their performance, students invited their mommy to sit while they served them muffins, fruit, cheese and crackers, and of course iced tea! A real treat for all of our hard-working, amazing Little School moms!

The Little School’s Director and educational staff strongly believe that there is an important connection between family and school, especially during the early years. As your child’s primary teacher and first educator, a parents role in their child’s early education is critical to their success!

Each year, we celebrate mothers at our Annual Mother’s Day Tea Party, a special event for students of our graduating class.
