This week the children have learned about zoo and jungle animals, we had lots of fun while pretending to be monkeys in circle time with Mr. Mike and they enjoyed hearing stories about our jungle friends while learning the sounds each one of them make. Children played with animal puppets and started to recognize and name some of them.
During creativity time the children made a zebra out of hand prints, a lion made out of hearts which helped them review this shape and a monkey with a special message for mommies.
For mothers day celebration the kids made a wooden canvas painting using different bright colors and painting techniques, they also learned an “I love you” poem dedicated to their mommies.
