Wow! This year 2017 is almost over! It has been a blast!

Thank you very much for your attendance at the Toy Stories Winter Festival. Big Bears were very excited and happy to show you their best!

This week was full of fun! We reviewed Christmas vocabulary, songs, and poems!. They are anxious for Santa Claus to bring their toys!

Have a wonderful time with you family during this Christmas Break. We really are going to miss our Big Bears. We hope you enjoy these days with them.

Remember we will see you back on Monday January 8th, 2018.

Wishing you the best for the New Year to come! Thank you so much for the gifts!

November Week 3

Big Bears now understand what sharing and giving means. They all have been practicing how to share with their classmates and are very enthusiastic about being thankful, too.

This week was full of excitement and experiences. As we learned our objectives, Big Bears made different projects such as Indian headdress and handprints.

They learned a rhyme, “Gobble, Gobble”

Gobble, Gobble
The turkey is a funny bird
His head goes wobble,wobble
He only knows one funny word
Gobble,gobble,gobble!

Try it at home!!

We visited Walmart on Thursday morning and our Big Bears were very happy and able to recognize, some fruits and veggies but their eyes really popped out when Ms. Maricusa showed them different types of fish and all the parts of an octopus! Thank you for coming to share these moments with us.

Next week we will be having a Thanksgiving celebration on Wednesday November 15th. We will be sharing food, being thankful and grateful.

 

October Week 3

This week we focused on Halloween characters, such as friendly cats, witches, ghost and goblins, spiders, bats and Haunted House.They had the opportunity to roll play as if they were each one. They also love to learn and recite poems,rhymes,and songs.

Also, Big Bears are practicing a witch poem:

The Witch

“If I were a witch

I´d ride on my broom

And scatter the ghosts with a zoom, zoom, zoom!

Big Bears are excited about the “Disney Halloween Parade! We inform you that it will be on October Tuesday 31st.

It is so enriching to see when Big Bears learn new things and how they help each other. We are all friends and proud to be Big Bears!
Have a great weekend!

October Week 2

We hope you enjoyed listening to the Big Bears singing Columbus, Columbus! They were very excited and we are glad they are improving their comprehension and fluency, overall building up their confidence and self-esteem.

Big Bears experienced in Science how hot air can melt crayons by using a hair dryer, learning how a solid can become a liquid.

They are more aware of the different seasons and the main colors of Fall, too.

Big Bears practiced this Fall rhyme:

” See the Leaves

falling down

to the ground

without a sound!”

Big Bears love to go with Ms. Mely for physical development. They have fun doing different activities, games and movements using several instruments or props.

Have a great weekend!

September Week 1

Thank you for attending Open House.We really enjoyed meeting you and seeing the very creative ideas you came up with for your child’s mystery bag!
All your children were very excited to receive the “Mystery Bag”. It will be used as a “show and tell” activity for whoever is the leader or super kid of the day. The Mystery Bag will be sent home a day prior to the assigned date for you child to be the leader. This way, your child can share and talk about the things inside during our morning routine!
Next week we will be talking about feelings. They will tell us when they feel happy, sad, angry, sleepy, etc.

The rhymes we have been practicing are:
Give Me Five
Eyes are watching
Ears are listening
Mouth is quiet
Hands are to myself
And heart is caring!

The Tree
Tree trunk at the bottom
Leaves at the top
Apples falling off the tree
Plop,plop,plop

Don t forget that hugging is a great medicine !
Have a fun weekend !!!

Dear Parents,

During this week we integrated Big Bears into their new classroom and teachers to make them comfortable,participate,and reinforce known concepts. These days have been full of joy and happiness. They have practiced different activities and become familiar with our daily life at Toddler Tree. The kids are making a great effort in adjusting to us and routines.

Next week we will be practicing pincer grasp movements in different areas. We will also learn many fun topics, such as feelings and school items.

Have a great weekend and we will be very happy to see them on Monday.
