Special Days from the Beginning of the Year:
Part of the MAP experience is the fun we have on both half day and full day openings throughout the year! For these special days we always have a fun theme that gives the day structure and some extra fun!
We squeezed the last drops out of summer the day before school opened with a Block Party day! On the 31st of August we had our first half day which was Pirate themed- were the kids got their very own Pirate names, and even had to fit together pieces of a lost pirate map to find lost treasure!
On September 10 we stayed with the nautical theme and had Under the Sea day! The kids had a variety of fun oceanic activities ranging from making ships out of Popsicle sticks to support as many pennies as they could, to making ocean themed treats, to painting sea shells!
Finally, we had "Expand Your Horizons" day on the 19th, where all the of the teachers took themselves out of their comfort zones and either tried something new or gave something they did not like or enjoy in the past another try. Charlotte expanded her pallet with some different foods that the kids tried, Joe did some art with the kids, Zack read aloud to the MAPsters after lunch, Maureen put together a power point with the help of some friends, Ruth held an all girls football game, Alex gave soccer a go, and Nescarly listened to some heavy metal music. Overall, it was quite the day of new experiences with a fresh perspective!
