Easter Break!

Hello parents!

This week we had a lot of fun! We had the Rainbow Parade at Alpino Chipinque. We loved watching everyone patricipate at the Spring Parade with their incredible cars. We enjoyed looking for eggs during the egg hunting. Thank you for all your effort, everyone was really happy and the decorated cars looked amazing!

In our classroom, we practiced our daily routine, getting to know the colors, shapes, numbers and abc. We loved reading books and playing with soft cubes. During creativity class, we enjoyed coloring and stuffing egg shells.

We hope you and your family enjoy Easter Break. We are off for two weeks and will see you back on Monday, April 9th.

Have a great vacation!

Thank you,

Miss Debbie

Easter Party

What a fun week! Turtles were looking forward to their Easter party and parade, and it was full of fun, games, and excitement. We loved seeing our student’s faces having a blast and enjoying the egg hunt. Thank you all for attending! We really enjoyed the parade and all the amazing decorated cars.

During creativity time the kids experienced painting outside. They were really into it this fun activity!

Also this week, we painted some pasta with red paint all of this in order to make a kite. We learned new techniques such as brushing glue and pasting tissue paper. Our turtles are loving the process of making art.

In Exploration time kids were surprised with an Easter video we used to review this topic as well as spring. They role played what the story was about with plush bunnies, Easter eggs and carrots.

Today was our last day of school before our Easter Break! Classes will resume on Monday April 9th.  We hope you have a super fun time with your little ones! See you in two weeks!

Cordially,

Miss Nadia

 

 

Easter Parade!

Our Terrific Tigers had such a fun time getting ready for our Easter Parade! We painted eggshells together, put confetti inside them and pasted paper covers. They were also quite busy making the decorations you saw all around the park. They simply love to see their own work being used to decorate the place! It made the whole park look so pretty!

The Parade was a great success! The kids enjoyed getting together and participating in our planned activities, such as bunny face painting, sifting the eggs out of the water, stuffing carrots  with marshmallows, and tossing the hoop in the carrots. After these activities they participated in the traditional parade, going around the park in their cars, scooters or tricycles. We were impressed to see all of the creativity used into decorating such vehicles! The egg hunt was the main attraction for our little ones and they were having so much fun looking for the egg shells and collecting them in their baskets or bags. Of course, breaking the egg shells on each others´ head was the highlight of the morning! We all got our head full of confetti! It was so nice to see that all of our students were able to attend and were happy to see all of the moms and some dads, as well! We thank you so much for your support!

During the days before the Easter parade took place, we were getting ready for such event, such as explaining to them what would happen on this day, and we even decorated a tricycle together, using colored paper and balloons, and explained to them that they would use something like that on the party. Most of them were able to tell us how their car was decorated! We talked about wind and kites and the kids had the opportunity to feel the air from a hair dryer and see a real kite. We explained to them that a kite needs lots of wind in order to be able to fly!

When we come back from our Easter Holidays, on Monday, April 9th, we will be talking about the farm!

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season together with your family and enjoy these special moments with them. We will be looking forward in seeing your little ones back in April. Have a great time!

 Everyday is a Rainbow of Colors!

March is here, and with this month we have a brand new theme: Spring and Easter, There’s a lot to learn about the season, Tiny Turtles are loving it!

We got to introduce this week’s topics with fun activities in our Exploration time, with plush bunnies, baskets and shaky eggs.

In our Creativity department the kids were are super busy making everything for our parade. They made Easter bunny with their finger prints and paint, they enjoy it a lot. Also they made a baby chick with their hand print and yellow paint, turtles now like to feel the paint in their hands! Finally kids made orange stamps with sponges for carrots. Today they play with shaving cream and they loved it!

Bugs and Bugs Everywhere!!

The Bees learned all about insects this week. Vocabulary words such as: Worms, bugs, dirt, grass, bees, fly, ladybug, grasshopper, cricket, caterpillar, butterfly ants, snail and anthill.

Our exploration activities were so much fun specially the ones that involved touching spaghetti simulating worms. Kids also practice their fine motor kills for an exploration activity were they needed to separate the different plastic bugs into the jars using a scoop. It was not easy, although most of the kids got it!.

We also had a great time in art painting with watercolors and discovering new colors, as well as using green paint for handprints to make a grasshopper. Finally we worked on a beehive using different materials such as bubblewrap, yellow paint, glue a brush and pompoms simulating the bees.

During physical development we had so much fun. We used some butterfly wings and fly, we also play with some bunny ears and hop and hop listening to the Bunny Hop song.

In Story time we read some books: Insect Pop-up Book, The Very Busy Bee, Ten Little Ladybugs, The Very hungry Caterpillar and Little Brown Ants.

We are now getting into Easter and showing the kids how to hold softly an easter egg so we can paint it. Next week we look forward to learn more about easter bunny, finding eggs, roleplay easter bunny, making baskets.

Dear Parents,

February is over, and this week we made a review of all the topics and vocabulary words of the month. The themes covered: land & water transportation, community helpers, air transportation, and space. The rescue team came to kinder on Wednesday, and kids enjoyed their presentation.

Turtles enjoyed exploration time, playing with community helper’s puppets and transportation toys. Also kidos played with the transportation puzzles.

In our Creativity time, our students made a hand print space ship. Turtles enjoy more and more using paint. We used crayons and paint on craft paper for another activity, too.

Hope you have a great weekend!
