This week we have an awesome scholastic book fair at our center. We have really enjoyed all of the special stories and children's expressions as they explore the book fair and read with their friends and families. Even at such a young age as in the infant classes, the importance of this special bonding time builds relationships and encourages positive brain functioning in all areas of their development. Thank you teachers and scholastic for providing our school with these wonderful tools and experiences!

We had the Nashville Library come to our school today to put on a puppet show. The children sat so quietly and watched. When little rabbit wishes for long, beautiful red wings, his wish comes true, but life is not at all as he'd expected: his friends, and even his own mother, don't recognize him! It not only teaches children be careful what you wish for, but most important just be you!

We have had a great time learning about different cultures and different parts of the world. Mrs. Hilda is from South Africa so she did a presentation about South African culture and traditions. She brought in a special treat of rice krispies and caramel for the children, they always love special treats! Today we will have tacos as we enjoy our time learning about Mexico and speaking in spanish. The kids love singing the months of the ano'!

This week we have been talking all about Tennessee. We had a visitor from the Nashville Zoo come to show us some Tennessee native animals! There was a big corn snake, a opossum named George, a skunk named Lilly and a huge barn owl with beautiful big orange eyes.

Space Explorer week was a blast! We had the Adventure Science Center come to our center and teach us about the different planets, gravity, space food, and the three laws of motion. This was a great week to talk about space, considering some fun information found by NASA this week. NASA said Thursday that its Kepler spacecraft has spotted "Earth's bigger, older cousin": the first nearly Earth-size planet to be found in the habitable zone of a star similar to our own. Though NASA can't say for sure whether the planet is rocky like ours or has water and air, it's the closest match found yet. It will be fun to learn about when more information is generated.

What a blast we had last week! We got to make ice cream, butter, cookies, and boars head came for a visit so we could make chicken sandwiches. We are making great memories that will stay with us forever! They definitely got to use all their sense by touching, smelling, and tasting their own creations. We also got to use our fine motor, math, science, and literacy skills as well. What a fun way to learn and teach!
