We are learning all about Beatrix Potter, the author of children’s books like the Tale of Peter Rabbit. Our book takes a look at some of the history of her life, such as where she grew up and how she became an author/illustrator. We have one student featured on the back of the book holding a Peter Rabbit stuffed animal. Read the book to find out some facts about Beatrix Potter!

National Siblings Day is April 10 so our theme is all about siblings! We have some of our own students in the book, but instead of it being focused around our students, we found out some pretty neat things about some of the staff’s siblings. One of our staff members has a sister who is a scientist, another staff member has a sister who is a music therapist, and our very own principal has a brother who works for NASA! Find out more about our siblings in our book and make sure to celebrate your own siblings 🙂

They are all coming to help their friend, Cinderella Monkey, celebrate her Birthday. Check it out to see what everyone brought their friend!

March Madness is here!! Lots of people get hyped up around this time of year due to all of the basketball games being played, so we decided to do a some research and find out a little more about the game of basketball. The book talks about WHO invented basketball, what the first pro game was, and how March Madness originated in the first place. We learned so many interesting things about the game of basketball! We do have one student featured in our book on our “THE END” page, so make sure to check it out!

We are taking a trip and learning all about Israel this week. We were lucky to get some authentic pictures of Israel taken by one of our nurses, Jill, who just recently visited the country. Our book tells about some of the things you can see in Israel, such as the Dead Sea and the Negev Desert. You can also find out what kind of produce is grown and distributed out of Israel. Check out the book and see some of the great photos from Jill!

The theme for this week is Youth Art Month, which is observed during the month of March. Our book takes a look at several different artists like Vincent van Gogh, Jackson Pollock, and Salvador Dali (just to name a few). Each page shows a picture of the artist along with one of their pieces of art. It’s so neat to see all of the different types of art! The front page features one of our students visiting a muesum while the back page features one of our students painting. Read the book to find out about these amazing artists!
