2017-The Year of Being Kind

Kindness is showing love to someone else.  I believe that kindness is the cure to violence and hatred around the world.

The kindest person I've ever known...

My Kandinsky

Many students worked at the easel with a black marker and paint...

On Target

Our MWF students spent Masterpiece Monday painting their own version of Kandinsky's Concentric Circles. Teachers sketched circles on canvas and students chose their colors.  These are hanging the MCP Art Gallery and will be at our art exhibit at the end of the year. 

Let's build STEAM---science, technology, engineering,  ART, and math.

Straight from the Heart

Valentine's Day is about a month away. We love making Valentine's Day cards at MCP and this year we are creating a new card design
for mommies and daddies. 
Need some ideas for a cute Valentine card
for home or school?

We're Halfway There

Our count is at 178 cereal boxes but we are not done yet!  The fort will open for 'business' tomorrow.  We will continue building until we reach the ceiling.  If we still have cereal boxes, we are going to build a smaller fort around the science & math table.

Dinosaurs & Snowmen at MCP

The start of the new year means dinosaurs and snowmen in our classroom.  Here are few things that will be available for play in the next few weeks.

Dinosaur dress-ups---

Dinosaurs are big so they have big numbers.  Students place stickers on dinosaur, have a teacher check and either add or subtract stickers.  When finished, students get to press the 'easy button'.

Sand will be in the messy tub to dig for fossils

Snowmen lacing cards for small motor skills.  Why are small motor skills important?

Snowmen contain letters for practice with a friend!

Roll the dice and count out the caps.

And the cereal box fort will be constructed! 

We are looking forward to a fun filled new year at MCP!
