This week our Terrific Tigers enjoyed reviewing all the types of transportation as well as community helpers. Transportation included, air, water and land, such as airplanes, helicopters, hot air balloons, rockets, cruise ships, boats, sailboats, cars, buses, motorcycles, fireengines, etc. They are now very aware of the community helpers and can name and identify them. We reviewed the police officer, mail carrier, doctor, dentist, teacher, garbage collector, firefighter and baker.
The kids really enjoyed their art projects painting with sponges and stamps. They loved working with small cars and making a car track painting too! They liked to make their community helpers hat this week, too. As you can notice, the decoration on the outside of the kinder is fabulous! All of this work is done exclusively by our students at Toddler Tree! They enjoy seeing their own projects there!
A new topic seen this week was Space! It was amazing to see how interested they were about this new theme and some of them even knew about the planets and the stars! They watched a video on Baby Einstein called: “Ring Around the Planet” and they were fascinated by the music and the content of the video! We will be making an astronaut project you will see soon!
During story time they were happy to hear the stories of the books such as: Fisher Price, My Little Pepole Busy Town; Away We Go!; The Wheels on the Bus; Dora´s What Will I Be?; Noisy Helpers; Trains, Boats, and Planes (Elmo´s Book); and Little People´s Cars,Trucks, Planes and Trains.
During Physical Development the kids really enjoyed an obstacle course we set up for them to imagine they are traveling by plane, by boat, and by train. They went up a ramp as if taking off, then crossed a bridge, jumped into a row boat, then jumped out of the boat, and went through a tunnel shouting out “Choo-Choo!”
We had another special visit this week at the kinder! On Wednesday, the Rescue Team came to visit us! They showed the kids what they do in case of an accident or a fire, and showed them some of the material that they use in their special first aid kit. Some of our little ones even volunteered to participate with them!
Our leaders this week included Eduardo, Lilia María, Andres, Lazaro and Emilia. It still is so exciting for them to show everyone what is in their suprise bag!
We look forward to teaching the kids all about spring and farm animals next month….in other words, next week! Hard to believe March is only a few days away!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend with your lovely family!
