Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

Happy Holidays!

This week was short, but definitely wonderful for us!

The Tiny Turtles turned into little cute Elves and performed at “The Grand Christmas Rhapsody” show. Everyone did such a great job! We are so proud of these kiddos.

Later, Santa Claus brought us gifts and we had a delicious lunch all together. It was so much fun!

Today we reviewed all the things we’ve learned about Christmas and enjoyed one last school day together. We said goodbye to everybody, until next semester. We will miss you, kiddos!

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.

See you back on Monday January 7th, 2019! We will start a new year learning many fun themes related to winter.

Have a Merry Christmas and stay safe this vacation!

Christmas spirit

The Tiny Turtles have been enjoying learning about Christmas. This week was so much fun for them! The kids are getting into that Christmasy spirit and learning about winter as well.

For Creativity, they made a Gingerbread Man and a Snow Globe with a snowman in it. The Turtles were also busy making decorations for “The Grand Christmas Rhapsody”. Everything is almost ready for the big day and the kiddos are very excited about it.

In Physical Development they enjoyed moving to different Christmas songs as well as practicing for the Christmas show. They are getting into it more and more every day.

Finally, for Story Time, everyone was so quiet and interested, paying attention to the different books we read in class. Reading about Santa Claus, his elves and reindeer, as well as role-playing with the different props was so much fun for them!

Eugenio was our Super Kid this week. His parents came to celebrate his birthday and brought a cool cake with a helicopter. Everyone was very excited about the cake and they sure enjoyed eating it! Thank you, Eugenio! Also, Turtles are starting to sing “Happy Birthday”, and some of them already remember the lyrics!

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.

Have a magical weekend and see you soon!

Santa Claus Is In Town!

This week did put us all in a super Christmas mood! We learned many new words, listened to plenty of Christmas songs and even got to meet Santa! We wrote letters to him and placed them in his sack. We also took pictures with him and everyone was very excited to greet Santa. It was so wonderful!

Kids are preparing for their Christmas performance and practicing their dance moves every day during Physical Development. They also have so much fun listening to Christmas songs and running like reindeer, shaking jingle bells to the rhythms of the songs and wearing white beards like Santa!

Our Creativity Time this week was about Santa, Rudolph and Christmas Lights. The crafts turned out lovely and the kids really liked them! We are also making something to decorate our stage for “The Grand Christmas Rhapsody.”

We read many books about Christmas this week. The kids seemed to like the story about Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer the most.

Next week we will be learning about Gingerbread Cookies, Posadas and Baby Jesus.

Have a lovely weekend!

2018 Grand Christmas Rhapsody: Tiny Turtles

We have been practicing for the Grand Christmas Rhapsody that will take place on Tuesday, December 18 at Candy Gum Party Place.

The Tiny Turtles will be Elves, so we ask that you please dress the GIRLS in RED top and RED tights with black shoes. We will provide skirts and accesories.

BOYS should wear black shoes. We will provide costumes.

The photos are not of the exact costume. It’s just to give you an idea. Please use what you have available, we can easily adapt. For example, girls can also wear black or white leotard. We can work with that.

 

Having A Holly Jolly Time!

Thanksgiving vacations are over and we were happy to see all our friends back at kinder!

We are very excited about Christmas and learning everything related to it. This week was dedicated to: Christmas Tree, Angels, Wreath, Chimney, and Stockings. We were searching for these items on our Bulletin Board and around the classroom. And of course kids already learned who Santa is and they are very excited to say hello to him every morning (we have one on the wall).

During Creativity Time we made little Christmas Trees, beautiful wreaths, a chimney and stockings for gifts. Turtles always get very creative and learn hand movements at the same time.

In Circle time, Mr. Mike played a very famous Christmas song with his accordion – Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Kiddos really loved it and they get very happy every time they hear this tune.

Physical Developement has been our time for learning our Christmas Dance. Kids are learning their moves for the performance that we will have on December 18th at Candy Gum in Plaza San Pedro.

Next week, we will continue learning more about Christmas!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Thanksgiving Week!

This week was dedicated to Thanksgiving and food. We learned what Americans eat on Thanksgiving and even had a delicious feast!

During Exploration and Morning Routine, we learned about the First Thanksgiving, the pilgrims and indians,  and old traditions. The kids were looking for pilgrims, indians and turkeys on our bulletin board and around the classroom.

In Circle Time, Mr. Mike showed us how pilgrims went hunting for turkeys.

During Physical Development, we danced like turkeys and little indians. The kids’ favorite songs were “The Turkey Hop” and “10 Little Indians”.

On Wednesday, we had our Thanksgiving Feast and we had so much fun! The Turtles wore their Pilgrim hats and Indian feathers they made during Creativity. The kiddos had a yummy lunch. They tasted turkey, mashed potatoes, corn and cranberries. After lunch we rotated with other classrooms for many fun activities, like fishing, playing drums and sorting veggies and fruits.

This week, we also celebrated Benjamin’s birthday. We made him a crown and sang Happy Birthday all together. His parents brought a delicious cake and Lion King cookies. Thank you, Benjamin!

Remember that next week we have vacations and will be back to school on Monday, November 26th.

Thank you for all you do and hope you have an amazing week!

Happy Thanksgiving!
