Our Visit to the National Children's Museum

November 19, 2021


We enjoyed a morning at the DC National Children's Museum! Students were able to explore, connect, and learn through play and problem solving as we moved through the museum's expansive open exhibit floor.


It's all about slime!

Our students enjoyed a sensory-filled funhouse with colorful lights, animations, playful sounds and squishy textures - all without the mess.

PAW Patrol Rescue Training

While attending the PAW Patrol Training Academy, students discovered art and technology principles along side the PAW Patrol pups. Some of the rescue training included: Artfully fighting represented "fires" with Marshall, building structures with Rubble, and creating flying machines with Skye.


Engineering Games + Play

Students explored and tested natural phenomenon concepts through hands-on play and visual learning.


We would like to thank parents, Ms. D, and the museum staff for their parts in making a memorable experience for our students!

 
This Month We Celebrate:
National Family Literacy Month

Get the whole family snuggled up on the couch and open up a good book. Studies show that reading aloud with mom or dad is the most important activity when it comes to preparing children to read on their own.

Reading helps with vocabulary, writing skills, attention span, memory, and teaches us about other times and places. Even if your child is just a baby, you should still sit down and read with them every once in a while. An infant can look at pictures and listen to your voice as you read stories to them… And believe it or not, studies show that that alone can have a profound effect on your child when it comes to learning later on in life.

Grab a few books, gather the fam, snuggle up, and let a book take you all to another place together.

How to observe: An activity for families

  1. Set aside a little time for reading every day

  2. Plan some visits to the library

  3. Read along with your child the book version of their favorite movie

  4. Start a book club with friends and family

  5. Participate in local book drives and book fairs
