Smiley Caterpillars!

During this week, our Caterpillars have been learning about feelings.They had so much fun listening and dancing to different songs related to this topic. We have also been working on each feeling through a variety of projects, flashcards, surprise box activities, books and so much more.

Our little ones learned pretty quickly the movements to the song “If you are happy and you know it “, it is a blast watching them. Caterpillars also love to hear “Feelings” by Hap Palmer.

Today we celebrated our “Mexican Independence Day” and sang the national anthem during Circle Time. Most of our children came dressed up with red, white and green colors.

Next week will be full of exciting activities and projects related to family members. On Wednesday, September 18th we will have a special visit, a Mime will come and perform for the kids at the kinder.

Have a wonderful long weekend!

“Crawling” Around The Kinder

We missed our caterpillars these rainy days. Just to give you an idea what we have been doing these few days at toddler tree. We started introducing body parts! They were so excited watching the different parts of their face. Also, our caterpillars enjoyed dancing the song of “head, shoulders, knees and toes”.

They are so excited to hear and learn new songs. We are working on a little project, they get to paste the different parts of the face. Our Caterpillars are adapting so well, we feel so happy about it.

Next Friday (Sep 13) we will celebrate Mexican Independence Day, you can send your kids dress up as Mexican Charros and Chinas Poblanas (it is optional).

Have a nice restful weekend!

Exploring Classroom Materials

We are so happy our Crawling Caterpillars are adapting so well! As each day goes by, we are seeing a lot progress in everyone.

Our students are getting to know the materials in the classroom. They are also finding opportunities to experiment with and learn what each thing is for. Feeling paint, rolling cars, brushes, glue, playdough, shaving cream and all our exciting materials we use.

Please remember our Open House will be held on Thursday, September 5th at 8:00pm. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

First Week As Crawling Caterpillars!

It is time of new beginnings for our Crawling Caterpillars. We are working really hard on establishing our daily routine while making sure they are feeling comfortable and secure in their environment. Remember that this process is different for every child and it is totally normal for them to cry. It is a new experience for all of them and we are sure that we are going to have a wonderful year ahead.

Our kiddos are going through an adaptation process and we are seeing progress as each day goes by. During Morning Routine, our little ones are participating more every day. They really enjoy listening and moving to the different educational songs we play.

We are glad to inform you that our Open House for Crawling Caterpillars parents will be held on Thursday, September 5th at 8pm. Please save the date. We look forward to getting together with all of you.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Welcome Caterpillars!

Welcome Caterpillars!

We are Miss Evy, Miss Martha and Miss Pily. We are pleased to welcome you to our Caterpillars classroom and we are very excited to start our 2019-2020 school year. We enjoyed interacting with all of you yesterday and are looking forward to a great year ahead.

This is a time of new beginnings, making friends, and learning lots of new things for your little ones. Every day they are going to be involved in new experiences and we hope to provide a variety of opportunities for learning and growing. In search of promoting self-sufficiency among these youngsters, our focus aside from the cognitive aspect of our curriculum will be developing social, emotional, and physical skills.

Thank you for entrusting your child to us.

Sincerely,
The Crawling Caterpillars Team

Doodle, Doodle Bye!

This last week, we had lots of fun. We learned more about summer and days at the beach. The kids are so excited for summer fun!

During Creativity, we made a starfish made out of foamy and glitter. We also made a sun with paper plates and black foamy sunglasses.

We were so happy to have you this school year. We are going to miss you. Each and every one will always have a special place in our hearts.

Have a great and fun summer!

With love,

Miss Martha, Miss Sofi, Miss Efo, Miss Pili and Miss Nani

Fun In The Sun!

This week we learned about the beach. Our kiddos learned vocabulary such as sand, sea, beach, shells and pool.

During Circle Time, Mr. Mike showed us 5 little frogs sitting on a log. He also gave the little ones sunglasses, so they could pretend to be at the beach. They loved it!

Creativity was so enjoyable! One of the activities the Caterpillars liked was using celery and paint to recreate fish scales. Their favorite project though, was making a puffer fish with black foamy and plastic balls with spikes, in order to make the puffer fish’s peaks. They also made a beach ball and sea shells with paper plates and watercolors.

During Physical Development, we danced along to “Surfing USA” while pretending to be on a surfing board. But, their all-time favorite activity is singing and dancing along to “Baby Shark”.

Next week we will be learning more about summer fun. On 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 for that day.

Enjoy your weekend!

Under The Sea!

This week we learned about sea animals. The kiddos learned vocabulary such as: octopus, dolphin, whale, fish, crab and walrus.

During Creativity, we crafted an octopus out of paper plates and foamy, we then pasted Fruit Loops onto the octopus’s tentacles. Also, they enjoyed making a crab using their hand print and red paint.

The kids were so happy dancing and singing along to “Baby Shark” during Physical Development. They also love prancing along to a classic, “Baby Beluga”, while making waving motions.

Thank you for attending our end of the year program, “Preschool of Rock”, we hope you enjoyed it as much as the kids did.

Next week we will be learning about the beach and various things related to it.

Have a amazing weekend!

B-I-N-G-O

This week we learned about pets, the kiddos learned vocabulary words such as “dog”, “cat”, “bunny”, “fish”, and “turtle”.

The kids really enjoyed meeting all of their classmates’ pets. Thank you for bringing them to the kinder!

During Circle Time, Mr. Mike showed us about different pets. He showed a puppy dog as we all sang Bingo and a fluffy bunny while we sang Bunny Hop. Also, our little ones were very excited with a cute kitty as we sang and spelled K-i-t-t-y.

In Creativity, we made a fish bowl made out of paper plates, fruit loops for the little fish tank stones, green tissue paper for the seaweed and orange foamy as a goldfish. We also made a dog house made out of tongue depressors, as the little ones colored them with red and pasted a little dog photo on it.

Physical Development has been very exciting for all of us, since we have been rehearsing for our end of the year program. The kids are really feeling it and are so excited to perform for you next week..

Have a great weekend!
