Summer Time at Norbeck
It’s hard to believe that summer is just around the corner. This summer at Norbeck Montessori promises to be one of our best summers ever! We have created some brand new themes and AMAZING projects and activities. We can’t wait to go exploring, create new crafts, do fun activities, all while learning with the children. As an added bonus, camp at Norbeck starts on June 20th, right after our school year ends! Just like our school year, Norbeck is open from 7:00am to 6:00pm. Unlike our school year, parents are able to pick the exact weeks and/or themes they want.
We are kicking off the summer by learning about real life superheroes and princesses; hero like police officers, doctors, nurses, military men and women, etc. At the end of the two weeks the children will be able to dress in their favorite fictional superheroes/princesses or real life heroes. The next theme is a celebration of the good old U.S. of A! We will be “celebrating” the Fourth of July with a cookout and remembering what makes the United States so great and continuing the theme the week with other special activities and art projects. The fourth and fifth weeks are dedicated two famous children authors, Eric Carle and Dr. Seuss. We will encourage children to bring in their favorite books to share with the class and we will be doing several incredible activities to go along with these two pioneering authors. Weeks six and seven will be focusing on different artists and the various techniques they use. We will be recreating and emulating theses masters of art to put together our very own Norbeck Art Gallery. After our little artists are done working hard on their art gallery they will be diving into the ocean to learn all about life under the sea! They will learn about different sea creatures and explore ways to protect our animals that live in the ocean. As our summer camp comes to a close, we always like to end with a “mess” and no one goes home disappointed (or clean) with “Mess Week”.
We are so excited with many new themes but will also have our weekly favorites like, “Make your own Snack Wednesdays” and “Water Play Day(s)”, and will still be offering optional hot lunches Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s. These are just a couple of the fun highlights we will be doing this Summer so we hope you make the decision to choose Norbeck as the fun place for your little one(s) to be this summer!
