Beach Party

Wednesday, January 29th
Thursday, January 30th 

After a long cold stretch, we are ready for a hot trip! As part of our ocean unit, we are planning a fun beach party in our classroom.
Our tables will turn into coral reefs, we will have snack on the beach and enjoy a variety of fun ocean activities.

At this time of the year, many provinces in Germany celebrate a cultural tradition called “Fasching” or “Karneval”. This is a celebration that originated in the 13th century and is meant to scare away winter.

We have decided to celebrate our traditional Fasching (carnival) a little early this year as Frau Hecker will be gone for an extended week in February. Therefore, we will combine two parties into one. Fingers crossed that Fasching mixed with beach themed activities will help to chase winter away!

Snack provided
Larissa and I will put a “beach snack” buffet together.  So please enjoy a break, and just pack a water bottle for your child. It’s going to be sunny and hot in the room, so they will get thirsty.

We invite the children to dress in whatever “summer/beach clothes” they like for this fun day. Please bring a beach towel!

Parents are invited to join us from 11:15 - 11:45 a.m.!
We invite all parents/caregivers to join us for the last 30 minutes of class on this day. Our little ones will march through the room chanting for winter to GO AWAY and sing a variety of our ocean songs. We will end the day with a traditional Fasching “candy toss” parade and a special beach drink for our parents!
