Tiger’s Treats

It’s finally October, and this week, our Terrific Tigers learned about shapes and the forms they can create. They were able to identify several shapes in items around their classroom.

In Creativity class, our kids made a piece of candy corn using a triangular foamy and applied different materials to decorate it.

The kids are really enjoying Circle Time with Mr. Mike and playing games that involve identifying shapes and colors all around the gym.

During Physical Development class, we danced and learned by following instructions and began introducing Halloween songs such as “Ghostbusters” and “Thriller”.

Next week we will have fun activities related to lines and colors!

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

We hope you have a great weekend!

Home Sweet Home!

This week we are reviewing the parts of the house, our kids have been learning new vocabulary words such as kitchen, bedroom, living, room, and bathroom. They enjoyed working and decorating their weekly creativity project.

On Wednesday we had our Mime visit, our kiddos were thrilled while watching the show. Through the mim’e show, we were able to review feelings and many even tried to mimic him. It was a really fun event full of surprises and magic tricks!

Next week, we will be learning about lines, shapes and colors through some exciting activities we have planned.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Our Family!

This week we learned about our family. We counted our family members, and also learned how to call them: Dad, Mom, Brother, Sister, Baby, etc.

Our art project involved painting a house that includes family members. The kids had so much fun making it!

In Cooperative Play, we made a family mural using different materials, like glitter, glue, pompoms, etc.

Next week we will talk about everything related to our house. Also, we will have a Mime visit us on Wednesday September 26th. We are really looking forward to the presentation and fun activities.

We hope you have a great weekend!

I’ve Got This Feeling…

This week we learned about feelings and the colors that represent them. In creativity, we used paper plates to make masks showing different emotions.

In story time, we shared many stories as well as a book in our leader’s mystery bag. The kids are so happy and excited to show their friends what they bring!

During Physical Development, we have been working with the kids to learn how to follow the leader and follow directions with different songs and activities. They really enjoy dancing and moving around!

Next week, we will talk about family. We look forward to sharing about each other’s family members with their picture boxes.

As a reminder, next Monday 17th we don’t have classes, but we hope to see everybody back on Tuesday!

Hope you have a great long weekend!

Having so much fun!

Dear Parents,

We thank you for coming to our Open House! It was a pleasure meeting you. The Terrific Tigers were excited about having their own mystery bags, and soon getting to use them to surprise their classmates!

This week we talked about body parts and learned about clothing items related to them.

Our creativity project, was about making a human body using different materials, and at the same time, reviewing parts of the body.

The kids are continually involved with activities that help them reinforce fine and gross motor skills (inserting straws into plastic bottles, using pom-poms with tweezers, working with Play-doh, etc).

Next week, we will be learning about feelings and how they can be expressed in different ways. For now, we look forward to seeing many happy faces next week.

Thanks again, and we hope you have a lovely weekend!

Ms. Victoria

All about Me!

Terrific Tigers are feeling more and more adapted as they enjoy their daily activities more and more! During this second week, we have been talking about classroom items, classmates, teachers, and school.

During Creativity Class, our Terrific Tigers have been busy working on school supply projects using different techniques such as painting, cutting and pasting. Our Cooperative Play has been an incredible experience.  We’ve noticed how much our students have matured since last year!

Next week, we will be talking about more classroom items. Take a look at the objectives published in our monthly newsletter to review these concepts with your toddlers at home.

As a reminder, next Wednesday, September 05, we will have our Open House for our Terrific Tiger parents. It will be held at 8:15 pm in our classroom. We are really looking forward to seeing you.

We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Sincerely,

Sea Creatures

This week we have begun to explore animals that live in the ocean! Our students have loved exploring this topic! The Terrific Tigers were fascinated this week learning all about sea creatures. They  can now identify a  fish, a whale, a shark, crab, octopus, jellyfish and a dolphin.

In Creativity the kids really enjoyed painting blue on poster board, simulating the ocean.  This project involved painting blue with foam, blue paint and bubble wrap. Students also explored sand mixing it with shaving cream which made for a really cool sensory exploration activity. They were also happy to help us paint some surf boards that will be used to decorate the end of the year Alo-Hawaii program!

During circle time, Mr. Mike showed the Tigers many different sea animals. The kids really liked the song “Once I Caught a Fish Alive.” They enjoyed watching several videos of dolphins.

In Physical Development, the kids had fun dancing, swimming and bobbing like many of the sea creatures. They really liked dancing to “The Baby Shark” song. They also had a lot of fun dancing and stretching to “Baby Beluga.” We are also getting ready for our Festival coming up on May 30th.

Stories we read this week are: Under the Sea, Flip, Flap Ocean, Sea Creatures, The Very Silly Shark, Backyardigan´s Deep Sea Countdown, My Under the Sea Pop up Book, Mr. McGee Goes to Sea, and The Underwater Alphabet Book.

 

Next week we will continue talking about other sea animals! We hope you enjoy your weekend!
