This week in the Summer School Age room:
On Monday, we played at Rocky River Beach park. The kids raced up and down the hill, played on the climber, & we even found a four leaf clover! On Tuesday, half of the class went to the weaving studio & painted using different tools, such as flowers, ribbon, and Legos. The finished pieces are so neat! On Wednesday, we had a short stop at Morton park, but changed to Lakewood park. The kids loved the climbers there and we took a walk down by the water. On Thursday, the other half of the class went to the weaving studio. On Friday, we made our way to Bradley Nature Park where the kids played on the climber & we went on a hike to observe some nature.
Have a great weekend!

Coach Charlotte visited us twice this week to get our bodies moving & exercising. We traveled to Bradley Woods Reservation where we discovered ducks, frogs, geese, cicadas, turtles, and a deer! Even though the park was muddy from the overnight rainfall, we all had a blast. At the center, we learned about different construction trucks & what their jobs are, we wrote our names with items we collected in nature, created fuse bead artwork, and designed different things using the 'Straws & Connecter' toys.
Next week is full of new adventures plus it is Christmas in July!

During this short week, we went to The Botanical Gardens where we saw lots of different plants & animals. The kids also went on a scavenger hunt while exploring the gardens. We had lunch at Wade Oval, where Mr. K met us and brought us cookies! At the weaving studio, everyone got to create their very own terrarium! To finish off the week, we visited Tri-City park. The kids played soccer, catch, rolled down the hills, and climbed on the climber.
Have a great weekend!

We have been rocking right on through music week! Our room looks so awesome, decorated with all our homemade keyboards, trumpets, boomboxes AND disco balls! We have been discussing a lot about how we can hear, see, and even feel music by vibrations. And we took time each day to listen to different genres of music, discussing how those might make our moods different!
LEGO week will be our last week here. So naturally, we will be turning our room into a lego town!I We're going to create paintings using legos, buildings out of legos, lego people and we will even be doing some ice excavation for...you guessed it! LEGOS!! I cannot believe that next week will be the last week here but we have plenty of fun things to still do! We will be making our own popsicles, and eating them too! There will be water relay races and water balloon tosses. I even have a little secret up my sleeve. I will be bringing in some whipped cream pies for all of them...to throw at me on the last day! I have a feeling that this will be one of the activities they will be enjoying most. I'm looking forward to it all! Have a great weekend!

We have been keeping our blood pumping this week for our sports theme! We have learned how to play soccer, baseball and basketball! We have also been discussing how our hearts beat, why exercise is important and the olympics! We even touched on a hard topic, Inertia!! We did a few different experiments to show how this works, using bill nye the science guy here and there to help explain in detail! We now know that an object at rest will remain at rest and an object in motion will remain in motion, unless there is an outside force! Next week we'll be learning about music families and making our very own instruments! Also, we will be talking about different genres of music, and how music makes us feel. Lots of fun crafts and experiments coming up, We look forward in sharing with you! Have a great weekend!

We have been working hard over here, and using our imaginations in abundance! Our SSA friends have been exploring their minds on what their underwater adventures would be, and have even applied that to our classroom with our own ecosystems! We now have little fish friends and the kids couldn't be more excited about them! We have discovered how whales stay warm under water, with a whale blubber experiment. And We made our classroom look like we were under water, with our own school of neon jellyfish and turtle pictures! Next week is SPORTS! We will be exploring some team building exercises and playing soccer, basketball, and some more games! Should be another great week!

We have had a busy construction week here at LCCC! A few things we have worked hard on include a huge spaghetti bridge, some catapults, marshmallow 3D buildings/sculptures, and parachutes for our egg drop! Everyone has been very busy, and we will be starting to build our very own ecosystems as well! Which will tie into next weeks theme, for school agers, under the sea! Where we will will be introducing some fishy classroom friends! We have learned about construction site safety and have stressed the saying "THINK SAFETY ACT SAFELY!" along with finding out what kind of tools and gear wed wear on a construction site!
Stay safe and stay healthy!
