Celebrating Dr. Seuss at Ridge: 

This week Ridge had a “Seussical” time celebrating Dr. Seuss. Our activities were based on the funky stuff that happens in Dr. Seuss’ books. Our Hut and Teepee classes read “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” and identified colors and personality traits of the fish. The children then made their own colorful fish by painting or using dot makers on paper plates.

MORE PICS FROM TOOTH FAIRY:

MORE ABOUT CHESS:

In Lesson #4, we unlock the pawns. As King Chomper and King Shaky travel to meet “King Crab” and see how all his little crabs move, pawns are captured in the front and to the side (staying on the same color).

Now we know the three rules for pawn movements. They can move: 1 square forward, 2 squares forward the first time they move, and they can capture forward and to the side.

MORE UWS NEWS:

The students at the Upper West Side (UWS) are having so much fun learning about “Light” this month. Northern Lights, shadows, natural and artificial light, and even famous painters that used light; such as Michelangelo were all analyzed. The children are greatly enjoying exploring light and shadows with flashlights and the light table.It is wonderful to observe and distinguish the amazing varied activities all the teachers are creating to engage the children in this remarkable theme. The teachers also prepared various exciting projects to highlight and celebrate Dr.  Seuss’ birthday, on Friday, March 1st, with activities, book readings and more. A ballet teacher was invited to come and introduce ballet to our 2-3 year old class as well.

The remarkable after school activities include chess with our devoted instructor, Steve, and the Soccer Shots program of which both activities are featured in the latest newsletter. The children are beginning to understand the concept of self-control and how to establish goals.
