Hi all. Hope everyone is staying safe. Was wondering if there was a possibility or even I could help facilitate it if it’s not already in the works, that the classes could do a zoom call together maybe once a week even if it’s for only 10 or 15 minutes? My little three-year-old is really missing her friends and it would give her something to look forward to. Just a thought? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤗
Another science activity! This one is great because it can use up that old candy you have left over from Valentine’s Day or if you are like me you still have Halloween candy. It is called skittles versus m&ms science. We also saw a video on rainbow colors before the experiment. Pictures below. I will try to add the website in the comments. Have fun learning!!
Science Fun! We watched a Brain pop junior video on colors then did an experiment called rainbow eruption. Trying to find experiments with things I have at home. This needed baking soda, vinegar and food coloring. My kids loved this!
Math game or fine motor game for all ages. Younger ones can put stickers on or use bingo dot stamps. Older runs roll a dice and stamp the number. For advanced learners two dice and add. Keeping learning and stay healthy my friends!! I got these off of Pinterest.
Good morning everyone! I am a teacher at NSLC and will be posting some ideas you can do with your children while you are at home. This activity you can do from ages 2 and up. This a scavenger hunt. Just adjust the words. Little ones can do alphabet and numbers older ones can do high frequency words. This also frees up some of your time as they run around the house. My two kids are five. Here are some pics:
Was lovely to see these kids light up about dental health! Thank you North Star Learning Center for letting us teach the kids how to stay healthy and happy!
Teacher Appreciation Week. We love our teachers at North Star!

Our oldest students made their very own PIZZA today! I think everyone liked it and they even let me make one - soooo delicious! :)
These were made using half of an English muffin and adding pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni (if they wanted it) on top and then toasting it in the oven.

I don't know about y'all, but I will definitely be adding this as an easy dinner option at home that my kiddo can help me with! :)

🌞 We are having a summer full of fun at North Star! 🌊 We are making new friends, having a blast with Water Days on Fridays, unleashing our creativity in the S.T.E.A.M. room, exploring the "Town of North Star" room, and embracing nature in our Outdoor Classroom. 🌳☀️ Our summer is filled with laughter, learning, and unforgettable memories! 🏖️

WOW! Another super fun day today - Game Day! We had balloons, an obstacle course, limbo, and several other fun games.
SUPER HUGE THANK YOU to all of the volunteers today... every single teacher came and told us today how amazing it was to have volunteers help out this year. You guys rocked it!

Today was Messy/Water day at North Star and my oh my we sure did get messy & wet!!! Our older classes got to splash around in huge mud puddles, have a marshmallow "snowball fight", play in colored shaving cream, get soaking wet in the sprinklers, wash babies and clothes, play in water tables, and even slide down a super fast water slide! We had a blast!

Today wouldn't have been possible without our amazing parent volunteers that helped out and our incredible specials teachers(Ms. Ross, Mrs. Coach Laura, Ms. Stephanie, & Mrs. Jennie) that have put together these super fun days for the kids. So much goes on behind the scenes to make days like these special and we truly appreciate it!

This past Saturday, April 1st (no foolin’) over 100 Early Childhood Educators gathered at North Star Learning Center for a training which began at 8:30am! These amazing teachers heard topics about the importance of play, the difference between boys and girls and how we meet their individual needs and they attending a rotation of our “Specials” rooms. Presenters included Ms. Ross our Librarian as well as Ms. Stephanie and Miss Coach Laura who led workshops alongside Christine Cross and Jennie Sawyer. We had excellent instruction for infants and ones plus our STEAM room AND the Outdoor Classroom were highlighted. Even our newly retired Ms. Lesa Cooper-Kalota returned to share about the Art Room. It was an amazing day. So very proud of all the educators at North Star Learning Center who gave up time on their Saturday to become better teachers.

It's been a while since I've posted on our page - so sorry! We have been so busy this year learning through play... last week our theme was Dinosaurs... here's a glimpse into the amazing things that happened at North Star last week! We made dinosaur tracks, dressed like dinosaurs, played with dinosaurs in our centers, made a volcano!!!, and even had a dinosaur parade!!! WOW! What a busy, fun week! This week we are switching gears and exploring farm animals. I've already seen one class "milking a cow" and another class with the most amazing sensory table full of farm items!

Summer is in full swing here at North Star! We have introduced a new room to the school this summer, a S.T.E.A.M. room (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) and there's been some amazing learning happening in there. We have also brought back our super fun Town of North Star Room where the kids can play dress up, puppets, grocery store, home living, garage, and more! We have also had water day every Friday this summer, with our next one being tomorrow. What an exciting time it's been already!

We did it!! We had our St. Jude Trike-A-Thon event this morning and had a blast! The families at North Star Learning Center raised a total of $2,775 for the families of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!!! $775 more than our target goal! AMAZING! A huge thank you to all the staff that helped make this event possible. :)

This week we have our Annual St. Jude Trike-A-Thon event. We have "rallies" each day leading up to the event to learn about Trike/Bike safety. They have been so much fun already! Monday we learned a very important lesson... Always wear your helmet! Yesterday we learned... Never ride in the street! Today and tomorrow we will learn two more very important things to get us ready to ride in the fun event on Friday!
Our goal was to raise $2,000 for the families at the St. Jude Children's research hospital and I am so happy to announce we have already passed our goal!!!! You guys are amazing! So far our incredible families have raised $2,055 for the families at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! Way to go! Let's see how far above our goal we can go!
During our Trike Rallies each day I tell the boys and girls how much we have raised and yesterday I was able to tell them we were only $5 away from our goal... I can't wait to see their faces when I tell them we have already surpassed our goal! We will have a lot to dance about today! :)

We are in our Growing Things/Insects unit this week and we have some amazing things happening here at school! Last week in science, Mrs. Jennie helped the students plant different vegetables in planter boxes on the playground. They are learning all about how to care for these plants so they can grow into vegetables! We also had caterpillars delivered last week and over the holiday weekend they have transformed into chrysalis'! They should be emerging into beautiful butterflies any day now! :)

We have been so blessed to add Science to our curriculum this year. Here is a note from Ms. Jennie on what they have been learning this year as well as a video of what our four/five year olds did in science today.

We have been “on the move” in science doing some physics and a little bit of engineering. We started the New Year by learning about force and motion with students exploring the many ways they can use a PUSH or a PULL to move objects in different ways. Magnetism kept us guessing as students investigated how they can both push and pull depending on their polarity. We also discovered the many forms of energy around us including light, sound, motion, electrical, chemical and heat. Using Frisbees, balls, and large pompoms, students turned their potential energy (which they called “gonna happen”) into kinetic energy, discovering how friction and air resistance can effect how far something will fly. And for the past week, we have been having fun with simple machines including wheels and axles, pulleys, wedges, levers, screws, and inclined planes and learning about how these tools help us get things done.

‘It’s an equity issue’ Fort Worth educators aim to bring play spaces to everyone 02/16/2022

‘It’s an equity issue’ Fort Worth educators aim to bring play spaces to everyone

Here is an amazing article from someone we strongly admire in our field of work, Audrey Rowland from Green Space. This is why we love and value our Outdoor Classroom space so much!

"Researchers told us over and over again that play is how children learn and how our brains make connections," she said. "It's how they balance their dopamine versus adrenaline versus all those things that make us able to regulate our emotions and to learn it. We know that it's how we reduce stress, and it's how we build resiliency, and really play is what creates the foundation for all those academic skills to layer on."
