February is here! A month that represents love and friendship, with lots of new vocabulary words to learn. During this month we will have several visits from community helpers such as: Police officer, mailman, firefighter, and rescue team. On Wednesday police officers dropped by the kinder and gave a brief explanation on traffic signals and the kids were very excited to get in their patrol car.
Today was Gonzalo’s turn to bring his surprise bag, and wow, were turtles in for a surprise! Gonzalo brought lots of stuff to show and share around with his friends. He brought two books, a car, two balls, and a plastic toy hen.
This week in exploration children enjoyed a sensory activity where they made a valentines card, spreading over a paper some glue mixed with red food coloring, tracing a heart afterwards and pasting stickers on it. Every student chose who they wanted to give their Valentines card to, and then they hugged his/her friend. The creeping water experiment was a big hit with the tiny turtles, they loved pouring some food coloring in the cups and watching the water turn red, yellow, green and blue. After that we put some paper towel inside each cup and watched it creeping all over the paper, your kids were really surprised!
One of this week’s key themes was “baker” so today kids were all in helping to make their chef’s hat. They used it in creativity time while they spread frosting on their cupcake and then top them off with some sprinkles.
Garbage collector was another theme on this week’s list, and turtles had a special activity in creativity: They got to the classroom and found lots of wrappers (playing the part of trash) laying on the floor, and everyone helped picking it up. Kiddos enjoyed making a collage with the pieces of “trash” they collected.
Tomorrow is Luis Lucas Lara’s birthday! He turns two, and next week we’ll be celebrating his super kid day. We want to wish him the happiest birthday ever, we love him very much!
Have a nice weekend!
