Santa Is Here!

This week was full of magic and excitement! We had a special visitor, Santa! All the kiddos had a great time taking pictures with him and giving him their Christmas cards.

Also, this week we started working on several Christmas decorations. The Big Bears had a great time using their skills.

We have been practicing songs and rhymes for the Christmas program. The kids are doing a great job and are eager to show you!

Ring, ring, ring the bells,
Ring them all to say,
X-Mas time is here to stay !!!

Next week we will be learning about the real meaning of Christmas.

Have a great weekend!

2018 Christmas Rhapsody: Big Bears

The Big Bears have been practicing for the Grand Christmas Rhapsody that will take place on Tuesday, December 18 at Candy Gum Party Place.

The Big Bears will be Country Western characters, so we ask that you please dress the GIRLS in white top, white tights and boots or black shoes. Hair should be loose and let down. We will provide skirts and accessories.

The photos are not of the exact costume. It’s just to give you an idea. Please use what you have available, we can easily adapt.

 

 

 

BOYS should wear jeans, a white shirt and boots or black shoes. We will provide other accessories.

 

S-A-N-T-A

We are happy to have you back after Thanksgiving! During this week we started working with Christmas decorations. Big Bears had a great time using their fine motor skills. Also, they are practicing with Miss Mely for the Christmas Program and are eager to show you and sing:

You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I’m telling you why:
Santa Claus is coming to town!

He’s making a list,
He’s checking it twice;
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town!

He sees you when you’re sleeping,
He knows when you’re awake.
He knows when you’ve been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake!

OH!You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I’m telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town!

Everyday when our students arrive to school they tell us what they want for Christmas and how is Santa always watching them.

Next week on Wednesday December 5th, Santa will visit us and our Bears will have the opportunity to take a picture with him! We will continue preparing for “The Grand Christmas Rhasody” which will be presented for you at Candy Gum Party Place on Tuesday December 18th.

Have a great weekend!

A quick reminder: please remember to label all jackets and sweaters to avoid mix ups.

Thankful Big Bears!

  • This week, the Big Bears understood what sharing and giving means. They all have been practicing how to share with their classmates and are very enthusiastic about being thankful, too.

The whole week was full of excitement and experiences. As we learned our objectives, during Creativity the kiddos made Indian headdresses. They wore them during our Thanksgiving Feast and were so excited about it. This celebration was a blast for the Big Bears! They had a viewing of the buffet table and shared delicious dishes.

They also learned a rhyme, “Gobble, Gobble” and sang and danced to the “ Ten Little Indians”. You should try it at home!

We want to remind you that we won’t have classes next week as we celebrate the Mexican Revolution and Thanksgiving Holidays.

Classes will resume on Monday, November 26.

Please make sure all of your child’s sweaters and jackets are labeled to avoid mix-ups.

Enjoy your child these days and get ready for our winter program.

Take care and have a great week!

I Like To Eat!

This week, we learned about the different types of fruits and veggies and how they should be incorporated in our nutrition. Our students had a chance to tell us which one was their favorite fruit describing their shape and color. They also had the opportunity to smell several vegetables.

The Big Bears had a blast during our HEB visit! We learned about fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood.They also loved decorating a cupcake at the HEB bakery! So fun!

The kids really enjoyed visiting the grocery store with their parents! A special thanks to all the parents who were there.

This week we also introduced Thanksgiving. During Circle Time, we learned how to do “The Turkey Hop” and the concept that thanksgiving is for giving thanks. It means: sharing, being grateful, and thankful.

We also showed the kids a video about the different foods we will be having during our Thanksgiving Feast. They saw turkey, mashed potatoes, carrots, corn, biscuits, cranberries, yams and pumpkin pie.

They are also learning a rhyme called “Turkey, Turkey”

Turkey, Turkey

“A turkey is a funny bird

His head goes wobble, wobble

He only knows one word:

Gobble, gobble, gobble”

Next Wednesday, November 14th, we will have our Thanksgiving Feast. Please remember there is no need to send lunch. There will be plenty of food for our kiddos.

Have a great weekend!

Welcome November!

This week, we reviewed Halloween characters and songs. We practice several rhymes such as “Pumpkin, Pumpkin”, “Go Away”, “Skeleton Dance” and many more!

Big Bears were excited all week waiting for the big Halloween celebration! The “Vintage Halloween Party” was a blast! It was full of wonderful moments. The kids did a great job! We love you, Big Bears!

Next week, the Big Bears will start learning about fruits, vegetables and dairy products.

As you may already know, we will be visiting H-E-B (Humberto Lobo) next Wednesday, November 7th at 9:00am. It is very important that all children be accompanied by a parent. We will start at 9:15a.m. so we kindly ask you to be at H-E-B at 9:00am.
Once we conclude our visit, you can bring the kids back to Toddler Tree where we will resume our normal activities.

Now that the weather is getting cold, we would like to remind you to please make sure all your child´s sweaters and jackets are labeled to avoid mix-ups!

HOPE YOU HAVE AN AWESOME WEEKEND!
