SQUIRT THURSDAY THEATER CLASS

Tales from the Hundred Acre Wood

All Squirts are welcome to this class, but it helps us to share contact information with Terri and to plan the class if you fill out the interest survey by January 22nd or SOONER.

SOONER IS BETTER!!!

We will create a script based on the needs and readiness of the actors, and A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh characters from the Hundred Acre Wood. 

We'll build a fun, safe, and developmentally appropriate story that kids will help devise. 

Regular rehearsals for The Hundred Acre Wood will be THURSDAYS, February 13 –March 12 from 2:00-3:00.

Everyone participating can be at Ocean as usual from 1:00-3:00.

Showcase Performance and family picnic on MARCH 19 at Broadway Playhouse

Monday (K - 2nd grade)

Spectra Art thursdayS

 (see Thursday page for details). Please feed your children before they come—no time for lunch on Thursdays.

Tales from the Hundred Acre Wood starts Feb. 13

Fill out survey by JANUARY 22

  

SQUIRT FOCUS GROUPS

We will be meeting for the final time as Frogs and Toads to play with Small Moment Stories. From that we will be forming out second semester Writing/Literacy Focus Groups.

We'll be trying to get the right developmental fit for each student. We'll have three groups.
 

 “I wonder if we are brave,” said Frog.
...“We look brave,” said Frog.
“Yes, but are we?” asked Toad.” 
― Arnold Lobel

SQUIRT SHARE GROUPS

Share is every Monday after lunch.  We encourage kids to bring something from home that represents something they've done or learned. They get to share with their friends, and we hope to inspire others to say, "I want to try that!" (rather than, "I want to buy that!"). Help your kids choose something to bring!

Circle Time Fun

We mostly do the famous Elephant Song. Ask your Squirt about it!

We will add in counting to ten in different languages, tongue twisters, and other songs or games if the group feels ready for that.

One language we might learn is

Cantonese: One through Ten
