I Like To Eat Apples & Bananas!

This week we started to learn about fruits and vegetables. Our main vocabulary words were: apple, banana, tomato, carrot and potato.

During Circle Time, Mr. Mike showed us a very famous song called “Apple and Bananas”. We also used the vocals (A, E, I, O, U) to sing along with the music.

At Physical Development, our Tiny Turtles exercised pretending to be scarecrows. Our kiddos enjoyed and had lots of fun dancing to the rhythm of new songs.

As our Tiny Turtles were learning about several food, during snack time we emphasized on the names of the food they brought. Also, we learned that sharing is caring.

Next week we will learn about other foods and will introduce Thanksgiving topic.

Have a nice weekend!

H-E-B San Pedro (Humberto Lobo)

With the intention of offering the kids an opportunity to explore food at the grocery store, we have programmed a visit to HEB San Pedro on Wednesday, November 6 (Big Bears) and on Thursday, November 7 (Terrific Tigers) with Ms. Caya, Ms. Pau, Ms. Rocio and Ms. Karen.

We will meet at the underground parking lot, near the electric escalators at 9:00am to start our tour at 9:15am. Mothers are asked to stay with their child during the visit which we expect will last approximately 30 minutes. We are asking that you please take your child to Toddler Tree after HEB and pick him/her up at the usual dismissal time. If your child will not be joining us for the visit, please drop him/her off at kinder after 10:00am on that day.

Thank you,

The Toddler Tree teaching staff

Estimados Padres de Familia:

 Con el propósito de que los niños tengan la experiencia tangible de explorar comida, que será parte del tema de este mes, hemos programado una visita a HEB San Pedro el miércoles 6 de noviembre (Big Bears) y el jueves 7 de Noviembre (Terrific Tigers) con Ms. Caya, Pau, Ms. Rocio, y Miss Karen.

Nos reuniremos con las maestras a las 9:00am en el estacionamiento subterráneo, a un lado de las escaleras eléctricas para empezar el tour a las 9:15am. Los niños deberán ser acompañados por su mamá durante el recorrido para el cual estimamos un tiempo de 30 minutos aproximadamente  y les pedimos entregar a sus hijos en Toddler Tree para terminar su mañana a la hora de costumbre. Para los niños que no vayan a asistir a la visita, la entrada será a las 10:00am en el kínder ese día.

Gracias,

El personal docente de Toddler Tree

Pumpkin Pumpkin

This week we focused on learning about Halloween characters, such as: friendly cats, witches, pumpkins, Jack o Lanterns, spiders, bats and a Haunted House.

Also, the Big Bears have been practicing the following song:
“Pumpkin, Pumpkin”

Pumpkin, pumpkin
Lets give you some eyes

Pumpkin,pumpkin
Lets give you a nose

Pumpkin,pumpkin
Lets give you a scary smile

And NOW you are a JACK – O – LANTERN !!!

During Creativity, Big Bears got really excited to learn new themes through art. We had so much fun making a pumpkinseed, witch and a skeleton face.

Next Week, we will continue learning more concepts related to Halloween. It will be an exciting week filled with surprises!

Our kids are so excited about the “Pixar Perfect Halloween Party”. It will be held on Thursday Oct 31st. Do they have costumes yet? We’re excited for them, too.

Have a great weekend!

Shaping Up To Be A Great Week!

Shapes! You can see them everywhere! This week was dedicated to learn about shapes, such as: square, circle, triangle, rectangle, star, heart, diamond and oval. We looked for them everywhere, for example: kinder doors are like rectangles, windows look like squares, balls have a circular form, etc.

Mr. Mike taught us during Circle Time some new songs and dance moves. He also introduced shapes, we especially loved holding hands to make a big circle!

At Morning Routine we practiced shapes a lot, Tiny Turtles already know the song “We are shapes, you can see us everywhere”. Kiddos found shapes on the walls, matched flashcards and played with wooden shape puzzles.

Our Creativity project this week was a poster with 5 different shapes. Kids used sponges to make triangle and rectangle prints, toilet paper rolls to make circle prints and glue to paste little squares and ovals. They felt very happy when they saw their shape boards.

As you may already know, on Thursday October 31st, we will be having our Halloween party and parade. Start looking for costumes so your child can participate. Try to find simple costumes for their own comfort. If possible, use make up instead of a mask, so it won’t obstruct their sight.

Next week we will learn about lines, primary colors and fall.

Have a great weekend!

We Are Big Bears!

Thank you so much for attending our Open House! We really enjoyed meeting you and seeing the very creative ideas you came up with for the Puppet.All your kids were very excited to receive them, they can be used at  home to express their feelings.

Please send the Mystery Bag to school if you have one.This is how it works: The bag will be sent home with your child a day prior to the assigned date when he or she will be the leader. At home they can choose one toy and one book, put them in the bag to bring to school. This way, your child can share and talk about the things inside it during our morning routine!

Next week, we will be talking about feelings and how they can be expressed through colors, body postures, facial expressions, etc. We are so excited to get into full swing with these topics.

Ask your child the rhyme we have been practicing:

“The Tree“

Tree trunk at the bottom

Leaves at the top

Apples falling off the tree

Plop,plop,plop

Dont forget that hugs are a great medicine!

Next Friday (Sep 13) we will celebrate Mexican Independence Day, you can send your kids dress up as Mexican Charros and Chinas Poblanas (it is optional).

Have a fun weekend,
