KidzLit is getting more and more delicious as the year goes on. Every Thursday, Miss Morello shares themed books with the children and facilitates an enrichment activity based on the books.
Edible Bagel Bears! Yes, Please?
Miss Renee’s Art Club with Oddfellows Playhouse has been extended and Macdonough Kids’ Korner couldn’t be more pleased. Here is an awesome sock-puppet project that we completed on one special Monday with Miss Renee!
Character Counts at Kids’ Korner!
When our KK kids show that they have good character, we reward them with special Character Counts dog-tags so that everyone knows they are making good choices after-school. The YMCA is known for it’s good character pillars of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Macdonough students follow SURFS by being Self Responsible, Understanding, Respectful, Fair, and Safe. So at Kids’ Korner Macdonough, we expect both the pillars AND surfs behavior. Even with these high expectations, some of our students really shine! Here are our first Character Counts winners! Each child received a dog-tag with one of the traits written on it. Kids’ Korner students can collect all five!
We had a FUN FRIDAY line up with Chinese New Year! January 31st marked the YEAR OF THE HORSE. We dressed in red outfits to celebrate, ate fortune cookies and created red dragons with red peppers and tomatoes. We talked about babies that are born in this year will be “the year of the horse” and Miss Morello’s students that are in KK were able to share some exciting news!
