Christmas Is Near!

This week we focused on Christmas and all of the magic this special holiday brings. Our big highlight this week was our Christmas program on Tuesday. After lots of practice, it is always a joy to see how our kids prepared themselves for this special event. It was an honor to have you as our guests!

During Physical Development we danced to many holiday tunes including “Rudolph the red nosed reindeer” and “Up on the Housetop”. We also used some antlers to do the “Reindeer Pokey”.

At Creativity we have been making a very special Christmas gift for Mommy and Daddy. They are so excited doing it!

Several books were read to them during Story Time and they loved watching all the pictures. While reading to them we like to practice several vocabulary words, such as: Santa, Christmas Tree, ornaments, Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, elves, Santa’s workshop, among others.

On Thursday, we celebrated Eugenio’s birthday and it was really fun.

Have a wonderful weekend!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

We have started the last and most wonderful month of the year…December! This first week, we went right into the Christmas spirit. Our kids learned about Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph. Some vocabulary words taught this week include: Christmas, Santa’s toy land, Christmas tree, ornaments, star, angel, reindeer and stockings.

During Creativity Class, we had fun working with Christmas colors while decorating christmas trees, making christmas crowns and reindeers.

At Physical Development we practiced our dance moves for the Christmas program. They have done a great job practicing and are now getting a hang of how to dance in a group!

Next week we have our Magic Kingdom Christmas festival on Wednesday, December 11th at Candy Gum (Plaza San Pedro). Our little ones will be so happy to be able to perform for you!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This week we celebrated Thanksgiving Day with a delicious feast at Toddler Tree. We had a wonderful meal that consisted of turkey, yams, corn, pumpkin pie, corn bread, cranberries and mashed potatoes. Terrific Tigers enjoyed sharing all this food with their friends and had so much fun.

After lunch we rotated with other classrooms to play different thanksgiving games, we had an indian dance with drums and other instruments, we went “fishing”, made a shaker and did a food relay.

During Story Time, we practiced some vocabulary and learned a lot about Thanksgiving Day. Also, our kiddos practiced several November rhymes and songs about turkeys such as “The Turkey Hop” and “The Thanksgiving Feast”. 

Have an amazing long weekend!

Ready For The Feast!

Terrific Tigers are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving Day next week with a feast at Toddler Tree. This week we learned a lot about Thanksgiving and explained to the kids about the turkey, yams, corn, pumpkin pie, corn bread, cranberries and mashed potatoes, etc.

Tigers really understand the meaning that sharing is caring and we love how they share their lunch. Also, they keep getting better and better at  taking turns while playing with toys.

At Circle Time, we had lots of fun dressing up with Mr. Mike as indians and pilgrims. Our kiddos enjoyed learning many things related to them.

During Story Time, we showed the leaders mystery bags. Also, we kept practicing the different thanksgiving rhymes.

Next week we will be having a Thanksgiving celebration on Wednesday, November 27th. We will be sharing food, being thankful and grateful. No lunch is needed, only their water bottle.

As a friendly reminder, there will be no clases on Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th. We will be very happy to see you on Monday, December 2nd.

Please make sure all of your child’s sweaters and jackets are labeled to avoid mix-ups.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Pilgrims & Indians!

Terrific Tigers are getting ready for thanksgiving! This week we learned about several aspects related to thanksgiving, such as: pilgrims and Indians, thanksgiving feast, cornucopias, turkeys, fruits and veggies.

At Circle Time, Mr. Mike told us the Mayflower story and the kids really enjoyed it. Our Tigers love listening to stories and observing the props we use to animate them.

On Wednesday we celebrated Benjamin’s birthday. We had a great time and enjoyed the donuts his mommy brought to us.

Our kiddos are learning a new November rhyme and also enjoyed singing “The Turkey Hop” and “The Thanksgiving Feast”.

We want to remind you that there will be no classes next monday due to the Mexican Revolution. See you on Tuesday November 19th!

Have a wonderful long weekend!

All About Food!

This week we started teaching new vocabulary words related to fruits and veggies. Our kiddos enjoyed learning by singing new songs and participating in several flashcard games. We had so much fun during our HEB visit on Thursday! Tigers learned about fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood and got to decorate a cupcake. They enjoyed visiting the grocery store with their parents! A special thanks to all the parents who were there.

During Story Time, we looked at books that had different kinds of food. Tigers were excited to point at them and then described their colors and shapes. At Playtime, we used fruit and vegetable puzzles.

Physical Development is a class they really enjoy and have lots of fun! We moved and danced to songs such as “The Turkey Hop”, “Let’s go to the market” and “I go crazy so I jump in my soup”.

Next week we will continue introducing other foods, as well as learning all about Thanksgiving.

As a friendly reminder please do not bring toys to school unless your child is the leader, that way we can avoid distractions.

Tigers are learning a NEW RHYME!

”Gobble, Gobble”

Gobble Gobble, the turkey is a funny bird.

His head goes gobble gobble.

He only know one silly word: Gobble gobble.

Hope you have a great weekend!
