Farewell Terrific Tigers!

Hello Terrific Tiger parents!

This is our last post of the year and we are so proud of each one of your little ones and their accomplishments during this 2018-2019 school year .

This week, at Toddler Tree, we enjoyed doing lots of different activities, where the kids had a lot of fun. On the last day of school the kiddos had a water party. They got to bring their swimsuit and play with lots of different sprinklers and fun water toys.

Also, they worked so hard on their father’s day gift, we hope you liked it!

Thank you for all your support during this school year, we love your kids very much and will miss them! Wish you all the best!

Enjoy your vacations!

With love,

Miss Laly & Miss Marifer

At The Beach!

We are close to finishing this school year, and we feel incredibly blessed to share these few last days with your children. We had so much fun during the year learning about many topics. This week’s topic was very exciting for our Tigers, as they learned about the beach.

During Circle Time, Mr. Mike took out sunglasses from his surprise box! All of the kids went “surfing” and pretended to be at the beach. Our Tigers really enjoy their time with Mr. Mike.

In creativity class, we crafted a crab using our hand prints and red paint. Then, the kiddos had a chance to explore the color and texture of sand, which was used to decorate their artwork. Also, they made a “fish tank” and decorated it using sand and foamy.

Next Thursday, June 13th, we will have our summer activities with water. Kids will have fun outside with big bubbles, inflatables and water guns. It’s going to be so much fun! Please send an extra set of clothes for that day.

Have an excellent weekend!

Under The Sea!

Terrific Tigers were vastly excited about their festival “Preschool of Rock”! We are so proud of them, as they made an excellent performance at the event.

This week we learned new vocabulary related to sea animals. Our kids enjoyed the numerous fun activities we prepared for them. During Exploration we role played using different sea animals, and they were able to imitate diverse sounds and movements. Tigers also went “fishing”, they caught sea animals to then recall the name of the one they grasped. We all had a lot of fun and learned many of the sea animals’ names with this activity.

In Creativity we worked with the letter O using purple and pink foamy to make an octopus. Our kiddos also used blue construction paper to simulate the arms of the octopus. After doing so, each one pasted the arms and eyes of the octopus to reinforce compression skills. We also decorated a fish using different colors of paint and fingerprints to practice fine motor skills.

In Circle Time with Mr. Mike, we used his bulletin board and listened to songs that helped us review vocabulary related to sea animals. Mr. Mike showed us from the surprise box some stuffed animals, such as: beluga, octopus, fish, shark, etc.

Next week we will talk about the beach and different activities related to it!

We hope you have a great weekend!

Animals!

This week at Toddler Tree we have been learning about different types of jungle animals.

During Creativity, we made several projects to continue developing our fine and gross motor skills such as: coloring inside the line (inside/outside), how to use the scissors (open/close), how to use glue stick and pasting shapes.

In Physical Development we have been practicing the songs and steps for our PreSchool of Rock program. The Tigers are doing an amazing job. We are really looking forward to showing you what they have been working on!

In Circle Time, Mr. Mike showed us some pictures and stuffed animals to teach us the differences between each animal. Our kids enjoyed role-playing too!

Today we had the Vet visit kinder, and our kiddos enjoyed it so much! Liz, the vet, brought a Golden Retriever named Leo and taught us about how we need to take care of dogs.

Next week, is pet week. If you want to bring your pet to the kinder please let Nora know to schedule a day and time.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Jungle Animals

This week we continued reviewing the Jungle Animals. The Tigers learned many things about giraffes, zebras and lions.

In Creativity class we made a Lion and a Zebra. To create the Lion, we used forks, orange paint and yellow construction paper. The Zebra craft helped us practice fine motor skills.

The kids carefully pasted black yarn to create stripes on it. Also, our Kids had a great time working on their Mother’s Day gift. Each one of them helped mix and pour and worked on it with lots of love and enthusiasm.

During Physical development we are practicing our choreography for the festivall. Our kids are making their best effort to learn all the steps and have fun while dancing.

Next week we will have a special visit, the Vet is coming to the kinder so we can continue learning more about animals.

We hope you have a great weekend and a fantastic Mother’s Day along with your kiddos!

Children’s Day!

We were so happy to have our Tigers back after two weeks. We came back with tons of energy and lots of surprises for our little ones!

On Tuesday, we had our Children’s Day celebration and the kids had a lot of fun. We had a Disney puppet show, face painting and a piñata. The kiddos played several games in the classroom and danced with the rest of the kids at the kinder.

During Creativity class, we made an elephant using the kids handprints. They also made grass by coloring with green crayons. Another craft they made, was a finger puppet giraffe using several materials. The kids enjoyed a lot making these activities related to animals.

In Physical development, we exercised and did a variety of movements pretending to be elephants. We also reviewed the parts of the elephant along with the song “Elephants have wrinkles”.

We hope you have a great weekend!

Easter Party!

This week, we had our Easter Party and the kids had so much fun! Thank you so much for joinging us! We hope you all enjoyed it and had a great time.

Everyone brought lovely decorated vehicles! Thank you, parents for all your efforts in helping your kids decorate. They all looked great!

The topic for this week was, obviously Easter. During Creativity class, we worked on our decorations for the “Easter Soccer” game and we made some Easter eggs. The kids decorated them using different materials such as: glitter, shaving cream, paint, papers and markers.

In Circle Time, we reviewed the Easter vocabulary and learned songs related to bunnies and Easter eggs. Also, we did role-playing and the kids pretended to be the Easter bunny and pretended to paint eggs.

We hope you have a great vacation!

Remember classes will resume on Monday, April 29th and we will start learning about jungle animals.

Easter Is Coming!

This week at Toddler Tree was so special for our kids. We started learning about Easter and new vocabulary words such as: Easter, Easter eggs, bunny, egg hunt, etc.

In Circle Time with Mr. Mike, he reinforced the new vocabulary and also taught some songs related to Easter such as “Friendly Easter Bunny.”

Our Terrific Tigers participated by role-playing, pretending to be Easter bunnies. The kids  also painted and decorated egg shells, that will be used next Wednesday, April 10th in our Easter egg hunt at the Colonia Sierra Madre Park.

Our kiddos enjoyed a special visitor at the kinder, a real bunny!  We learned about what bunnies eat, how to take care of them, and the importance of being careful around pets.

In Physical Development we pretended to be Easter bunnies and hopped around the carpet to the rhythm of the Bunny Hop song.  Also, we had an egg hunt and our kids had the chance to look for the eggs all around the gym.

We hope you have a great weekend!

Terrific Tigers Had A Farm!

This week we continued reviewing animals on the Farm . We learned words such as: pig, cow, chicken, duck, sheep, etc. In each class, we practiced and discovered fun facts and learned a little bit more about each animal.

In Creativity class, we made an edible pig project. The Tigers used chocolate pudding as mud and pink marshmallows and fruit loops to simulate the pigs. The kids enjoyed working on it and also loved the taste of it. Also, we worked on a sheep made out of construction paper and cotton.

During Physical Development, we exercised using puppets and masks pretending to be different farm animals, such as: cow, sheep, pig and duck. Our kiddos enjoyed imitating the sounds and movements of several animals.

We are very excited about our Easter Party that will be on Wednesday, April 10th at Colonia Sierra Madre Park. Here is the agenda for that day:

9:45 am Arrival at the park
10:00 am Photo session with Easter Bunny
10:30 am Parade of decorated scooters, trikes, cars or bikes (please assist your child in preparing it at home- check our website for ideas)
10:45 am Snack (provided by Spring room mothers)
11:00 am Egg Hunt (keep in mind your child needs a bag or basket for this activity)

As a friendly reminder, please remember to send confetti filled and colored egg shells for the party.

Hope you have a great weekend!

On Our Way To Grandpa’s Farm…

This week Terrific Tigers started learning about the Farm. Some vocabulary words that we started to talk about were: cow, pig, horse, chicken, sheep, duck, goat, and rooster.

Our kiddos really enjoy listening to the different animal sounds and have been learning to identify them.

During Creativity class, we worked on a cow mask. First, they painted a paper plate and used construction paper to decorate it. We also colored a red barn with some of the animals that are in it. At last but not least, we used bubble wrap and yellow paint to make “corn”.

In Physical Development, we did a really fun activity by covering our eyes and with the help of a bell we tried to find our friends around the gym. This helps develop hearing skills. We are also starting to learn and dance songs about farm animals using a routine of exercises to develop their gross motor skills and their physical health.

As a friendly reminder, please remember to send pre washed painted and non painted eggs for the Easter party.

We hope you have a great weekend!
