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:

Farm Animals

Busy Bees had an amazing week learning about the farm and farm animals.

During Creativity Class, we made several projects. The Bees made a chick using a paper plate. They also made corn and decorated it with real popcorn. They had a blast!

During their Morning Routine, we sang several songs about the farm and farm animals like: Old MacDonald Had a Farm, and Grandpa’s Farm. Also, we listened to animal sounds and are learning to identify them.

During our gym class, we pretended to go to Grandpa’s Farm, and we turned on our groove to the Chicken Dance.

Please remember to send egg shells pre washed, painted and stuffed with confetti to the kinder for our Easter parade.

Thank you, and we hope you have an amazing weekend!

Insects Everywhere!!

The Bees learned all about insects this week. Vocabulary words such as: Worms, bugs, dirt, grass, bees, fly, ladybug, grasshopper, cricket, caterpillar, butterfly ants, snail and anthill.

Our exploration activities were so much fun, especially the ones that involved finding gummy worms in Oreo crushed cookies (dirt). Kids also practiced their fine motor skills for an exploration activity were they needed to separate the different plastic bugs into the jars using a scoop. It was not easy, although most of the kids got it in the end.

During physical development we had so much fun! We used some butterfly wings to “fly” and we learned a new song. The ants go marching hurra, hurra!

In Story time we read some books: Insect Pop-up Book, The Very Busy Bee, Ten Little Ladybugs, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Little Brown Ants.

We hope you have an amazing weekend.

We Love Growing!

This was a week full of learning experiences!!

We talked about rainbows, planting and growing. Our Busy Bees had a fun time learning all about plating seeds. The vocabulary words learned this week were: trees, plants, seeds, flowers, planting, water and  growing. They learned a new song during circle time that talks about many things that grow. It’s called Growing, by Raffi.

During Exploration, the kids got to work on an experiment. Using oil, alcohol , colorant , syrup and water they made a colorful rainbow.

They also planted chia seeds and every morning they would water them, and watch them grow.

In Art Class, the Busy Bees worked with different colors, mixing them with glue and water. Then using a dropper they made colorful rain.

During Physical Development, the kids enjoyed dancing and climbing and rolling on the mats!
They has lots of fun!!

We hope you have an amazing weekend
