We have finished week # 3! Time sure goes by quickly when we are enjoying ourselves so much!
On Monday we had our Open House at Toddler Tree, where the Terrific Tigers’ parents were able to visit the classroom and learn all about what we do during the mornings. It was pleasure to meet and greet all of those who were able to make it, and we want to thank you for making the effort.
We also want to thank the parents for coming up with some cool bag designs that made their children very happy the following day when they were able to see them.
This week we talked about their body parts. Vocabulary words such as hand, face, shoulders, tummy, feet, toes, legs, knees, and items related to their bodies, such as clothes (socks & shoes) were seen during the morning. We also talked about the different feelings they can have, such as being happy, sad, angry, sleepy, sick or surprised.
We did serveral activities in Exploration Time related to their body parts. Actitivites such as tracing their life size silhouettes and having them paint them, while reviewing their body parts; making their faces using paper plates; showing them several pictures of different body parts and having them recognize them and point on their own body where it is found, and they loved it when we used a feather to play “where am I tickling you?”, and they had to name that body part being tickled!
They are continuing to work very well in their Coopertive Play time. Activities such as inserting straws into plastic bottles, using pon-poms, working with containers with diffferent colored coins and separating the coins by colors are their favorites!
Our leaders are happy to wear their special sticker for the day, and are now able to bring a special item from home in their new “mystery bag” made by you especially for them!
Creativity Time is always enjoyed since they work actively with different colors and textures. They finished their Zoe puppet this week and were able to create a new color (orange) mixing red and yellow. Using this new color, they placed their hand prints on a big sheet of paper.
Physical Education is a fun class! They like to dance and do different movements to the music! They practiced rolling themselves on mats, rolling the balls to each other, throwing balls into hoola hoops, and singing the song: “Head, sholders, knees and toes”, while touching these body parts.
As you can see, we had a very interesting week! Next week we will be talking about family members. We would like to remiind you if you haven´t brought their box with family pictures on it, please do as soon as possible since we will be using them next week on our “Family” theme.
We hope you have a lovely weekend!
Best regards, Mrs. Martha & Mrs. Nancy
