We Saw Santa!

This week was an exciting one for the kids!

On Wednesday, we saw Santa who came to visit Toddler Tree and we got to take pictures and told him what we want for Christmas.

One of our memorable activities of the week was during Exploration, when we made fake snow! The kids had so much fun touching it and discovering new textures. Also, we made an elf using paper plates and learned a lot about Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.

We have been practicing for “The Grand Christmas Rhapsody.” The kiddos are excited to show you what have we been working on.

Next week we will be learning about Frosty the Snowman, making gingerbread cookies and the story about baby Jesus.

We hope you have an amazing weekend!

Thanksgiving Feast!

The Busy Bees had their Thanksgiving feast on Wednesday, and they really enjoyed it. They had the experience of viewing a set Thanksgiving table with all the delicious food.

They also got to rotate and play different games in other classrooms like a food relay, “Go Fish”, and “Pin the Feather on the Turkey.”

This week we used cookie cutters to make turkey out of bread, it was really cute and the kids loved doing it. Also, the kiddos practiced being Indians and pilgrims. It was a week filled with fun and surprises!

When we come back to school after Thanksgiving break, we will start talking about Christmas themes such as: bells, toys, Santa, Christmas Trees, ornaments, candies and cookies

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.

When we come back to school after Thanksgiving break, we will start talking about Christmas themes such as: bells, toys, Santa, Christmas Trees, ornaments, candies and cookies.

Thank you for all you do!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fruits And Vegetables Are Here!

This week, we started with a new and fun topic for the Busy Bees to learn! We talked about fruits and vegetables, such as: apple, banana, orange, and lemon, carrot, broccoli, onion, potatoes, tomatoes and green peas. We also introduced them to several dairy products, like: milk, butter, cheese, yogurt and eggs.

During class, they had the opportunity to taste and explore some of these different foods.

In Creativity, we worked on our fine motor skills by making apple stamping. Also, we made a rainbow out of fruit and a smiley face using jicama, carrots, raisins and tomatoes. Our Bees had tons of fun creating a color-changing, milk science experiment. They really enjoyed it!

Next week we will have our Thanksgiving Feast on Wednesday. Please remember there is no need to send lunch, we will have lots of food for the kiddos to eat!

We hope you have an amazing weekend!

Bye-Bye October, Hello November!

This week we had so much with our Halloween parade! The kids did a great job on the cat walk and very much enjoyed our last October activities. It was lovely seeing everyone in their costumes!

We are saying “Bye-bye October, hello November!”

Next week, will be filled with many fun surprises. We are beginning the month learning about food and later we will be learning all about Thanksgiving.

The kids will be learning about different types of fruits and veggies and how important they are to stay healthy. Our students will have the chance to tell us which one is their favorite. We are going to teach them to identify and describe them using their senses.

We wish you a very fun and happy weekend!!!
