Put On Your… Jacket!

Our Caterpillars started talking about winter clothes. The kiddos learned vocabulary words such as “jacket”, “scarf”, “mittens”, “boots” and “hat”.

During Circle Time, Mr. Mike showed us how to put on each piece of clothing properly. Also, we learned about the importance of wearing clothes to keep warm during winter.

Creativity Time was so much fun! We made different winter clothes such as mittens and caps. We also made a delicious snowman made out of powdered sugar donuts. So yummy!

This week we welcomed some new Crawling Caterpillars to our class! We want to give a warm welcome to Olivia, Emilia, Eugenio, Sofia, Carolina and Paulina. We’re so happy to have them in our class!

Next week we will be learning about forest animals and cold-weather animals.We will also be having Grandmothers visit Toddler Tree!

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Happy New Year Caterpillars!

Happy New Year and welcome back! Hoped you had an amazing Christmas break.

This week we welcomed the kiddos with a new theme, winter. They learned vocabulary words such as “igloo”, “eskimo”, “snow” “penguin” and “ice”. They also learned that the last number of the year has changed, no more 2018, welcome 2019!

During Cricle Time with Mr. Mike, played “Happy New Year” on his accordion and the kids loved it!

The Caterpillars really enjoyed Physical Development. They danced along to the “Freeze Dance”. They were really good at it and had so much fun.

In Creativity, we made snowflakes out of tongue depressors.  They also used ice paint to paint craft paper. Lastly, they used circle sponges with white paint to paint snow.

Next week we will be learning about winter clothes. Please send your little ones with some items such as scarfs, boots, mittens and beanies.

We look forward for Parent´s conference next Thursday January 17th.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Holidays!

This week we reviewed different Christmas topics, such as: Santa and his reindeer, Baby Jesus, Christmas decorations and Christmas songs.

Our little ones made a very special gift for you. They made a hand print over a Christmas ornament and placed a a green ribbon inside which measures your little one’s height.

We hope you enjoyed the Grand Christmas Rhapsody show. The Caterpillars did much better than expected! Our little ones felt so excited to perform for you.

When the kids come back from Christmas vacations on Monday January 7th , we will be learning about winter.

We would like to thank you all for the lovely presents you gave us this holiday season. We really appreciate you taking the time to think about us. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

‘Tis The Season!

This week we learned about the real meaning of Christmas and how this holiday is about giving and not receiving, about family and love.

During Circle time, Mr. Mike taught us vocabulary words such as angels, bells, candles and baby Jesus.

In Physical Development, we are still rehearsing for our Christmas Program, working on the final touches! The Caterpillars are so excited!

Creativity Time is so fun and amazing! We worked on some Christmas decorations for the Program. Also, the kids made a phonograph record made out of glittery, black foamy and white paper. (They will be part of the show decorations)

We want to remind you that “The Grand Christmas Rhapsody” show will take place next Tuesday, December 18, at Candy Gum. The time of arrival for kids is 9 am and parents arrive for the performance at 10.30.

Enjoy your weekend!

S-A-N-T-A

This week we learned about Santa Claus and his reindeer. We listened and danced to songs like “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Up on the House-Top”.

The Caterpillars made a Santa Claus out of a toilet paper tube, cotton for his beard and hair, and a red pompom for his nose. They also made a reindeer: they painted an egg carton with brown paint, they glued little eyes, and used pipe cleaners for the horns.

Also, on Wednesday Santa came to Toddler Tree! Each Caterpillar took a picture with Santa and he took our Christmas cards. They were so excited to see him!

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

Have a good weekend!

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

 

Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree

Hoped you enjoyed your Thanksgiving break!

This week we welcomed the kiddos with lots of Christmas songs and decorations. In Circle Time, Mr. Mike showed us ornaments, Christmas tree and wreaths. Also, he introduced a little bit about Santa Claus and his reindeer. It is so cute that everytime our little ones see Santa, they all go “ho, ho, ho”.

During Creativity, Caterpillars painted paper plates green and made a Christmas tree with it decorated with pompoms and sequins. We also made wreaths out of the same materials.

Physical Development is super fun! We are rehearsing for our Christmas program and the kids love dancing.

Next week we will be learning more about Christmas, especially about Santa Claus and his reindeer.

Have an amazing weekend!
