We have been talking about Christmas and everything related to this very special season! Vocabulary words that we have been reviewing include gifts, giving, toys, elves, Santa´s workshop, sleigh, and train.
For each one of these vocabulary words we have been relating them in our classroom. During Exploration Class they were able to build their very own miniature gingerbread house, Bake and decorate Christmas sugar cookies. Lastly we also had the opportunity to wrap some gifts while we explained that this is a season of giving and that Santa brings toys to the boys and girls who behave themselves! Most of them were able to tell us what they would like Santa to bring them: trains, cars, swings & dolls were some of the items mentioned.
When we talked about elves, or Santa´s helpers, our Terrific Tigers got dressed up as elves and they were happy to pretend to be one of them! They enjoyed “helping” Santa prepare all the toys! We got to see a little part of the wonderful movie: ”Mickeys Christmas Spectacular” which is a beautiful movie related to this Christmas time!
During Creativity Class they have been busy making their very own Santa, Reindeer, Penguin and have started working on a very special Christmas gift they are making especially for you!
Physical Development has been all about practicing and rehearsing for this special presentation we will have on Monday.They are excited about presenting for you and have been dancing and dancing!
Stories that have been read to them this week include titles, such as Christmas Lights, Merry Christmas Mom and Dad, Mickey Mouse Santa´s Helper, Santa´s sleigh, My Santa Claus, Little Critter Christmas Book, Ho, Ho, Ho, Wee Mouse,&Christmas Day. Emilia was our leader on Thursday and she also brought books to read related to Christmas!
The highlight of this week was when Santa came to Toddler Tree and visited the groups before having their picture taken with him. Our Terrific Tigers looked so nice with their special outfits, which were used for this special picture.
