A Colorful Week!

Another week went by and our Terrific Tigers got to work with lots of different materials. In Creativity, they made a beautiful rainbow were we practiced making lines and colors. We taught them the primary colors and they also learned about the secondary colors using paint and pasta.

During Story Time, we are introducing Halloween vocabulary with different books. Our kids really enjoyed the stories and the pictures related to Halloween.

During Physical Development, we have been exercising to the beat of Halloween songs. That way, the kids can keep listening to new vocabulary words. Some of our routines were focused on practicing walking in straight and zig zag lines.

On Wednesday October 31st, we will have our Vintage Halloween Party. Please remember to send your children with something to collect their sweets (it can be a bag or basket). In case you want to send treats for their classmates, there are 13 kids (3 boys, 10 girls).

Next week, we will continue talking about Halloween and many more things related to it.

Have a wonderful weekend!

We Are Feeling Happy!

Dear parents,

We had so much fun this week talking about feelings. During Creativity, we made a kleenex box with each side reflecting a feeling. The Busy Bees had a great time singing and making funny faces.

During Exploration, we made an experiment using different colors of skittles to make a rainbow. It’s amazing to see the reactions of our kiddos.

Next week, will be talking all about family.  The box that you sent at the beginning of the year, will be of great help so everyone will get to know each other’s families.

Please remember, next Monday we don’t have classea, so we will see our kiddos on Tuesday, September 18th.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I’m A Happy Big Bear!

This week was full of fun and interesting activities. We talked about feelings and how they can be expressed. The Big Bears were excited to express how they felt each day during Morning Routine.

We also taught the kids about Mexican Independence and the Mexican flag. We showed them the colors, as well as the National Anthem.

During Circle Time, Mr. Mike had the kids ring the bell and yell “¡Viva México!”

In Physical Development, we danced using hula hoops to the “Mexican Hat Dance”.

Thank you for dressing our Big Bears for Mexican Independence. They looked wonderful and had a great time celebrating!

We are looking forward to next week activities that include a lot of fun themes related to family. It’s a great topic to reinforce at home!

Have a fun long weekend!

Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes

Dear Parents,

Miss Caty and I loved seeing you all at the Open House! Your kids were also very surprised to find their special pointers.

This week we learned all about body parts, we had so much fun making our weekly project while singing “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”. On Friday, our Busy Bees enjoyed reviewing the body parts with their new pointers.

José Luis was our super kid this week, and he brought some cake. Mr. Mike also made him a special birthday crown and we sang Happy Birthday.

We look forward to next week, when we will be learning all about feelings and how they can be expressed through colors, facial expressions and body postures.

Have a great weekend,

Miss Mely and Miss Caty
