All about Teeth

Today we had a visit from the Dentist! Children learned how many teeth do they have, and how to keep them clean and healthy. Habits of good brushing were reinforced in classroom work as well :)

From an Egg to a Chick

It was beautiful to watch the beginning of life unfold before our eyes. Fascinating and extremely exciting for everyone at the school!
