*** SUPER SUMMER JULY***

Important Dates:  July 1-5-  NO SCHOOL

Summer is going to be all about Fun!  We have a different type of activity each day this summer.

MONDAYS are Movie and Movement Madness! 

            Each Monday we will be featuring a different movie that relates to our theme for the week.  We will also be doing a fun movement activity to get the kids moving and grooving. 

TUESDAYS are Technology and Crafting Together!

           Each Tuesday your child can bring in any handheld games, such as their Nintendo DS, tablets, or Leapsters.  Any sort of technology counts.  We will do our best as teachers to ensure that the devises you bring in are used properly, however, Kennedy Academy teachers and staff are not responsible for lost or broken itemsWe are also going to be doing a fun craft project each Tuesday that relates to the theme. 

WEDNESDAYS are We Build and Splash Days!

           On Wednesdays the kids get to build various things within the classroom to play and explore with.  This is a time for make believe and imagination building.  We are also going to be playing in water outside on Wednesdays.

    *Your child will need a swimsuit and towel for Wednesday’s activities.  They will also be spending time in the sun.  So, if you would like us to apply sunscreen to your child, please be sure we have a signed permission slip. 

THURSDAYS are Super Science and Cooking Days!

                On Thursdays we will be using our culinary skills to create edible delights.  We are going to be learning about measuring and working together to create yummy treats to eat.  We will also be doing experiments on Thursdays.  The kids will be doing activities that will blow their minds!

FRIDAYS are Fun and Free Art Days and Splash Days!

  We are excited to introduce the kids to open-ended art.  They will be giving a group of materials and they are to use their own imagination and creativity to create whatever they want.   We will also be playing in the water on Fridays.

*Your child will need a swimsuit and towel for Friday’s activities.  They will also be spending time in the sun.  So, if you would like us to apply sunscreen to your child, please be sure we have a signed permission slip. 

****SPLASH DAY TIP:  It may be easiest to bring a swimsuit and towel to school on Monday with the nap bag.  Then keep it here all week.  You can take it home on Friday and bring it back the next week. 

Our weekly themes:

July 8-12:  Luau Week

We are going to be learning about the beach, Hawaii, and playing in the sun. 

July 15-19:  Farm Week

    We will be learning about life on the farm.  We will be talking about the animals on a farm and the work a farmer does. 

July 22-26:  Circus Week

We will be fooling around and acting like clowns.  We will be doing fun activities that bring out the kid in everyone.

July 29-Aug 2:  Hollywood Week

               Lights, camera, action! It’s time for some show biz!  Each kid will be a star.  They will be acting, dancing, and showing off their own skills.
