This week’s theme is Friends and we talked about friendship and meeting new people.  Some children tend to stick with the same friends they have known for a long time and do not want to meet new friends.  This week, we challenged the children to play with someone they normally do not play with.  Some of the children accepted this idea and others did not.  When asked why they did not want to play with someone else, some of the children said that they did not want to play with someone new.  This can be something that takes time for some children to get used to.  Other children are more social and they are not resistant to the idea of playing with someone they normally don’t play with.

We went to USS Cod and it came with some challenges because the children and teachers had to overcome any fears they originally had such as being in a tight area.  It was surprising not too bad!  We all had a great time and we learned new things about the submarine.  Did you know this submarine is over 80 years old and it was one of the 275 submarines from WWII that has been best restored?  When we checked the submarine out, it was like walking into a time capsule!  We all enjoyed coming and we hope to go again next year.  We went to South Mastick Park where we played on the playground, swung on the swings, and played with field toys.  We also went to Lakewood Park with PreK where we got to play together on the playground, took a walk to look at the skyline of Cleveland and sat on the Solstice steps to look at Lake Erie.  

This summer has officially come to an end and I can’t believe that Summer Camp is over!  It flew by so fast!  I hope your children had fun this summer and I hope to see them next year.  Thank you so much for a wonderful and memorable summer!  I will probably see some of your children for School Age days.  To my PreK: Good luck in Kindergarten and I hope to see you next summer and/or school age days.  To my School Age:  Have fun in school and I hope to see you next summer and for those not returning:  I will miss you and I hope you come visit us!  

If you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me!  Thank you so much for all you have done for us!
