This week our Terrific Tigers started a new topic: we focused mainly on “Planting”. We talked about how to put seeds in the soil, and how the plants need sunlight, water, and air to grow. They learned that they can plant flowers, trees and a variety of plants, as well. They were able to see real products that came from planting, such as onions, cucumbers, lettuce, broccoli, and apples. After looking at pictures of these products, they felt, and smelled them.
We finished this week talking about a new theme: insects! For some reason, this is a topic that they really enjoy! We talked about worms, bugs, dirt, bees, flies and beehives. They even got a chance to try some crackers with honey made by bees!
During Creativity Class they finished their farm project and took it home. They made a red barn, and filled it with different kinds of farm animals made by using their hand print and foot prints. They were able to recognize these animals!
Physical Education Class has been lots of fun dancing to different kinds of music related to these themes.
Stories read this week include: The Seed Song Book, Good Morning Sun, In my Garden, The Icky Bug, The Very Busy Bee.
Our happy leaders for this week were Victor, Lazaro, Eduardo, Gabriel, and Andres.
Next week we will continue talking about creepy crawlies and will celebrate Children´s Day on Thursday, April 28th. Snacks for that day will be provided by different moms at the kinder. Your child does not need to bring a lunch box that day…A thermos of water is recommended.
On Friday, April 29, we will have a holiday. There will be no school that day, since we will be celebrating Labor Day (May 1st).
We are happy to say that our students have been doing really well in their potty training process! As soon as you think your child is ready, please let us know and we will be happy to help out during their time in the morning with us! It is such a pleasure to see them learn so many things!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
