Thanksgiving Day!

This week we celebrated Thanksgiving Day with a scrumptious feast at Toddler Tree.

We had a delicious Thanksgiving meal and tried turkey, yams, corn, pumpkin pie, corn bread, cranberries and mashed potatoes. We enjoyed sharing all this food with our friends and had so much fun with the activities.

After lunch we rotated with other classrooms to play “Go-Fish”, to play drums and other instruments and sort veggies and fruits.

During story time, we practiced some vocabulary and learned a lot about Thanksgiving Day. We learned some November rhymes and songs about turkeys such as “The Turkey Hop” and “The Thanksgiving Feast”. 

We want to remind you that there will not be classes next week due to the Mexican Revolution and Thanksgiving holidays.

See you on Monday, November 26th! Thank you for all you do!

Happy Thanksgiving!

All About Food!

This week we started learning new vocabulary all about food.

We had so much fun during our HEB visit! We learned about fruits, vegetables, meat, sea food and got to decorate a cupcake. Our Tigers had so much fun and enjoyed visiting the grocery store with their parents! A special thanks to all the parents who were there.

During the week, we went over different fruits and vegetables, introducing vocabulary with the use of flashcards. During story time, we also looked at books that had different kinds of food.
In Physical Development, we moved and danced to songs such s “The Turkey Hop” and “I go crazy so I jump in my soup.”
Next Wednesday November 14th, we will have our Thanksgiving Feast. Please remember there is no need to send lunch. There will be plenty of food for our kiddos.
As a friendly reminder please do not bring toys to school so we can avoid distractions.
Hope you have a great weekend!

November Is Here!

It was a week full of exciting and fun activities! On Wednesday, we had our Halloween Parade, it was so much fun! Our Tigers enjoyed the cat walk and wearing their costumes for this special day.

This week, we also said goodbye to October and hello to November! We are now introducing new vocabulary related to November themes and are also practicing new songs.

During Creativity Class, we started working on a Thankful Tree for our classroom door. This is a project in which everyone will be involved. It also teaches the meaning of sharing. Our kids made some beautiful fall leaves with their handprints using yellow, orange and red paint.

As you may already know, we will be visiting H-E-B (Humberto Lobo) next Wednesday, November 7th at 9:00am. It is very important that all children be accompanied by a parent. We will start at 9:15a.m. so we kindly ask you to be at H-E-B at 9:00am.
Once we conclude our visit, you can bring the kids back to Toddler Tree where we will resume our normal activities.

We hope you have a great weekend!

Getting Ready For Halloween!

It’s almost October 31st and our Terrific Tigers are getting ready for Halloween. During the week, we have been learning new vocabulary words related to Halloween.

In our Creativity class, the kiddos made a ghost using shaving cream and glue. Also, we learned about what happens in the fall, as the leaves turn yellow and orange. The kids actually painted some leaves.

The Tigers are getting so excited about Halloween, that we decided to make a Haunted House using paper bags.

During Physical Development, we continued listening and dancing to Halloween songs. Our kids enjoy this class very much, because they get to excercise and move to fun music.

Next week, we will still be full of new fun and exciting Halloween activities.

We hope you have a great weekend!

A Colorful Week!

Another week went by and our Terrific Tigers got to work with lots of different materials. In Creativity, they made a beautiful rainbow were we practiced making lines and colors. We taught them the primary colors and they also learned about the secondary colors using paint and pasta.

During Story Time, we are introducing Halloween vocabulary with different books. Our kids really enjoyed the stories and the pictures related to Halloween.

During Physical Development, we have been exercising to the beat of Halloween songs. That way, the kids can keep listening to new vocabulary words. Some of our routines were focused on practicing walking in straight and zig zag lines.

On Wednesday October 31st, we will have our Vintage Halloween Party. Please remember to send your children with something to collect their sweets (it can be a bag or basket). In case you want to send treats for their classmates, there are 13 kids (3 boys, 10 girls).

Next week, we will continue talking about Halloween and many more things related to it.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Tiger’s Treats

It’s finally October, and this week, our Terrific Tigers learned about shapes and the forms they can create. They were able to identify several shapes in items around their classroom.

In Creativity class, our kids made a piece of candy corn using a triangular foamy and applied different materials to decorate it.

The kids are really enjoying Circle Time with Mr. Mike and playing games that involve identifying shapes and colors all around the gym.

During Physical Development class, we danced and learned by following instructions and began introducing Halloween songs such as “Ghostbusters” and “Thriller”.

Next week we will have fun activities related to lines and colors!

As you may already know, on Wednesday October 31st, we will be having our “Vintage Halloween” party and parade. You may want to start looking for costumes so your child can participate. Try to find something simple for their own comfort. If possible, use make up instead of a mask, so it won’t obstruct their sight.

We hope you have a great weekend!

Home Sweet Home!

This week we are reviewing the parts of the house, our kids have been learning new vocabulary words such as kitchen, bedroom, living, room, and bathroom. They enjoyed working and decorating their weekly creativity project.
