Things got a little “chilly” in the Terrific Tigers classroom this week as we explored penguin world and arctic animals. The kids enjoyed touching and feeling slippery and colorful ice, and liked to watch it melt into water.
This week we had a variety of activities that involved brown bears, polar bears, and raccoons. The kids learned the Brown Bear Story by Eric Carle and made their own brown bear out of a paper bag during art.
During physical development the Tigers got a chance use their imagination and go over mountains and cross rivers to songs such as “The Bear Went Over the Mountain” and “We´re Going on a Bear Hunt.”
They also got to learn about the penguin world through Happy Feet and The March of the Penguins. They really enjoyed dancing to the music from Happy Feet and actually insisted on dancing some of the soundtrack songs twice a day.
Finally, the children used their creativity in art to make invitations for grandparents day. They glued chocolate and marshmallows to cut outs of mugs and took their invitations home. We hope they made it to Grandma’s hands and look forward to their visit on Wednesday.
