Welcome to Orion, who started school this month.
In our world travels, the children “visited” Germany and Greece. They enjoyed presentations by Sebastian’s and Amalia’s parents, which included looking at photos, dancing, listening to music, and learning how to say “hello, friend” in German and Greek. The children were interested in counting and how to say certain words in German and Greek. They also made Greek worry beads, which absorb worries. Next, the children will learn about Turkey.
On Thursday, a dentist visited the class and taught them that they have 20 teeth and should brush them for two minutes. Each child got to brush giant teeth and also put magnetic representations of food on a picture of a tooth. If it was candy, ice cream, soda or a germ, it stuck on the tooth. Fruit and vegetables slipped off, showing that when you eat sugary things, you’ll need to brush your teeth very well.
