End Of School Year!

Yesterday was our last day of school, so many mixed emotion. We feel happy and excited for the next step in your childs’ educational journey, but at the same time we feel a little bit sad because we’re going to miss those daily hugs and listening to their lovely laughs.

They filled our classroom with joy and happiness; so many memories will stay with us, so many happy moments. We truly enjoyed every minute we had with our Busy Bees, every single one of them is unique and very special to us.

This week, we had 4 super kids! All of the kids were so excited saying happy birthday to Gabriel, Gonzalo, Ponchito, and Martina. They enjoyed singing and of course, eating cake and donuts!

Our kiddos had a blast at our water party . They enjoyed playing and splashing around the playground.

It’s been quite a journey! We feel blessed and fortunate to have been your kids’ teachers for this past school year. We will always cherish those beautiful moments with them, forever in our hearts. We also want to thank you for trusting us with your children’s education. They will all be greatly missed!

Thank you for a great year!

Love always,

Miss Mely and Miss Caty.

Fun At The Beach!

Busy Bees have loved exploring the new topic of the week, fun at the beach! They were so exited to play with sand, sunglasses, sunscreen, sailboats and surfboards. Also, we reviewed some sea creatures and they were able to identify lots of them.

In Creativity, the kids really enjoyed working with paint, sand, glue, paint brushes, and foamy. This project involved using blue paint to simulate the ocean. They also explored the texture and color of the sand, to later paste it with glue on the paper. Finally, they included some sunscreen, a beach ball and a towel. It was a great activity!

During Circle Time, Mr. Mike had a surprise for the Bees. Sunglasses for everyone! He played a beach song and we went “surfing”. They really enjoyed it!

Next Thursday, June 13th, we will have our summer activities with water. Kids will have fun outside with big bubbles, inflatables and water guns. It’s going to be so much fun! Please send an extra set of clothes (and water diapers if needed) for that day.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Under The Sea!

This week was fun! The kids had a chance to learn about animals that live under the sea. They’ve now learned vocabulary such as: octopus, shark, crab, whale, dolphin, fish, jellyfish, sea horse, star fish, crab and lobster.

During Creativity we made a crab with the kids’ hand and feet, they liked this activity very much! We also played with sea animal toys and it was delightful to see so much information retained from our lessons!

We had Ana Gaby as our Super Kid and she was joyously sharing cupcakes with her friends.

Our End of the Year Program “Preschool of Rock” was a huge success, since the kids enjoyed it so much! They had been practicing for several weeks and they were truly ready to show off their moves! Everything turned out delightfully, and the most important thing is that our kiddos had a really good time and felt special dancing for you.

Next week we will learn about the beach and many things related to it.

We hope you have an amazing weekend!

Pet Week!

Busy Bees had an exciting week at the Kinder, they enjoyed learning about different pet animals. The vocabulary words learned this week were: dog, puppies, cats, kittens, rabbit, frogs, hamster, birds, fish and turtle. They also learned how to pet and take care of them.

Pet week was full of visits!!! “Bartolito”, Carlota’s dog, came to visit. Everyone was in love with him. “Sol and Luna”, Gabriel’s fish and turtle, also came and we were very excited watching them. We also loved when Pau brought her turtle to share with the class!

During Creativity we worked on sensory skills. Kids made a fish bowl, a hamster with pompoms and a parrot.  Art is one of their favorite activities, since we are able explore different techniques and materials.

In Physical Development we are practicing for our end of the year program, which will be on Tuesday, May 28th at Candy Gum in Plaza San Pedro.

Next week we will start learning about sea animals!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Zoo Animals

This week the busy bees enjoyed reviewing zoo animals. Most students can already recognize the sounds of certain animals. Our Bees really enjoy imitating animal sounds and movements.

During Creativity we made a hippo, a panda, a camel and a parrot using different materials and techniques. Our kiddos really enjoyed making all of these different projects.

In Physical Development, Busy Bess have been practicing really hard for the end of the year program. They’ve been learning new moves and songs and are happy to be performing for you.

Today we had the vet visit and the kids loved it! Next week will be pet week. We encourage you to bring your pets and show them to our class. Please ask Nora the date and time you are assigned to bring your pet to share.

As a reminder, on Tuesday May 28th, we will be having our End of the Year Program. Be sure to mark your calendars!

Thank you so much for your kind gestures on teachers day! We feel blessed to be in this field of work! Thanks for entrusting your children to us.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Mother’s Day!

We hope you have a wonderful time on your special day. The kids had so much fun making your lemon scrub, smelling, mixing and adding all the ingredients. We hope you enjoy it!

Our Busy Bees continued learning about animals, and this week they discovered many interesting things related to crocodiles, monkeys , lions, tigers, snakes and giraffes.

In our Creativity class, the kiddos worked on several projects. At the beginning of the week, they started working on a tiger craft. We used several materials and techniques. Also, they created hand and foot prints as an extra gift for you to have.

Next week we will have a special visit. A Vet is coming to the kinder so we can continue learning more about animals.

We hope you have an amazing weekend with all of your loved ones.

Happy Children’s Day

This week we had lots and lots of fun! We had a party to celebrate the joy of Toddler Tree kinder… your children! For this special day, we had fun activities planned for them like a Disney puppet show, face painting, hitting a piñata and making bubbles.

Our Bees had so much fun! They had a nice picnic inside the classroom with cupcakes, sandwiches and chips. It’s truly a privilege to watch those happy faces, enjoying themselves and having a blast.

This week we started learning about jungle animals and for our Creativity class we made an elephant. They used balloons to simulate his big trunk.

During Story time, we read “The Monkey And The Crocodile.” kids loved showing their big teeth and snapping just like crocodiles do.

Next week we will be learning about giraffes, snakes, zebras, lions and monkeys.

We hope you have a great weekend!

Easter Parade!

During the days before the Easter parade, we took time explaining to the kids what would happen on this day. We even showed them past years’ parades so they would know what to expect.

The parade was a great success! The kids enjoyed getting together and participating in our planned activities.  The egg hunt was the main attraction for our little ones. They had so much fun looking for the egg shells and collecting them in their baskets or bags. It was so nice to see everyone so happy.

Everyone brought lovely decorated vehicles and enjoyed the fun games outside! Thank you, parents for all your efforts in helping your kids decorate. They all looked great!

When we come back from our Easter Holidays, on Monday, April 29th, we will be talking about jungle animals!.

We hope you have a wonderful vacation with your family and enjoy these special moments with your children.

Easter Bunny!

The Busy Bees had lots of fun with this week’s topic! They learned about Easter, about making baskets and they learned how to hide/ seek & find. They had fun sorting the top and bottom of some plastic Easter egg, and what they loved the most was hiding and finding Easter eggs around our classroom.

We had a visit this week from Mr Bunny! (A real life bunny) The kids all got to pet the bunny and watch him eat some lettuce. They were so excited!

In our physical development class we also hopped like bunnies. The Busy Bees loved to dance the “bunny hop” song and the “Bunny sleeping” song. They wore bunny ears and were hopping and jumping like bunnies, role playing. It was so much fun!

We are so excited about our Easter parade next Wednesday, April 10th at Colonia Sierra Madre Park.

As a friendly reminder please leave toys in the car.

We hope you have an amazing weekend!

Old MacDonald Had A Farm!

This week, the Busy Bees learned more about the Farm. Some vocabulary words that we started to talk about were: cow, pig, horse, chicken, sheep, duck, goat, and rooster. Our kiddos really enjoyed listening to the different animal sounds and have been learning to identify them.

During Creativity, we worked on a sheep using bubble wrap and white paint. They loved popping the bubbles! For this project, we also painted a paper plate and used construction paper to decorate it.

We are very excited about our Easter party that will be on Wednesday, April 10th at Colonia Sierra Madre park. Here is the agenda for that day:
