|The Mighty Me's celebrated the Chinese New Year with a look into China. Among other things, they learned Chinese phrases (Qiángdà de wǒ means MIGHTY ME!) made paper lanterns and flags, and played with a cardboard Great Wall of China. They also created a mighty dragon puppet for the culminating New Years parade with their big friends in the Pre-K classes. Here they are gluing the teeth into the mouth of their good-luck dragon.|

A day in the life....
Everyday is filled with at least 400 amazing adventures at The Little School. Though we make it a point to get together as a community throughout the day, in some ways each class is like it's own distinct planet in the TLS milky way. I thought it would be fun just to poke our heads into these Martian worlds. Here is what I found this week:
Ms. Rose's Yellow Duck class transformed into hibernating bears. Throughout the week, these duck-bears learned all about bears and hibernation. Bear hats donned, the kids all came with their teddy bears and cozy pj's and had a big meal to prepare for the long cold winter (aka, nap-time).
Ms. Holly's class created a masterpiece for Art For Hospice. This non-profit group distributes works of art made by kids of all ages, and distributes them to hospice centers, VA hospitals and nursing homes across the state. Here James shows us the "tree" he painted.
