Next week we will introduce “Summer Fun and the Beach” theme. Big Bears had a chance to talk about the vocabulary involved in activities they can do or clothing they’ll wear during summertime, such as snorkel gear, swimsuit, sunglasses, shovel, pail etc.
Please remember that next Friday June 8th will be the graduation at Toddler Tree. Children should arrive at 8:00 a.m. and the program will be from 8:15 to 8:45 a.m. Don’t miss it!
We can still remember the first day of school as if it was yesterday. Time passes so fast but the last day of school is almost here!
We are so proud of our Big Bears because they have grown and are full of dreams, which we are sure they will pursue and achieve successfully.
All this school year, as teachers, we had this main goal in our minds and hearts which we would like to share with you: “A teacher´s purpose is not create students in our own image, but to develop students who can create their own image.”
Have a great weekend!!

Big Bears had fun learning about farm animals, how each one has something special and knowing that they all live in the same community.
During creativity, the kids have been working on a farm project. They used different techniques and materials, enjoying hand and foot printing above all.
In circle time with Mr. Mike our students have been role playing different farm animals, wearing masks and making different sounds. They are able to recognize each one of the animals.
During gym we have been developing physical objetives. Big Bears enjoy different obstacle courses and circuits. We also focus on teaching them how to take turns and respect others.
We learned how to plant a seed and take care of the growing process. We also learned a song:
Plant, plant, plant
in a long straight row
and watch them as they grow.
Next Monday, April 30th, 2018 we will celebrate Children Day at Toddler Tree.
Tuesday May 2nd. NO SCHOOL.
Have a great weekend!
Monday, April 30th, 2018 @ Toddler Tree Kinder
All students will take part in our Children’s Day Celebration! Toddler Tree teachers have prepared different centers for the kids to have a full farm experience. Between finding the milk bottle caps in the haystack, milk bottle bowling, milking the cow, egg and spoon racing, wheelbarrows, everyone is sure to have a great time. No need for lunchboxes, as April room mothers will provide the snacks. Please dress children in jeans and white top with sneakers or comfortable shoes.
Please note that the first day back after the Christmas break will be Monday 8th January 2018. New Crawling Caterpillars start on Monday, January 15th.

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”
The turkey is a funny bird
His head goes wobble,wobble
He only knows one funny word
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.
