Our Terrific Tigers have enjoyed this week very much, since they simply love this special season. Lots of colors have been used during their morning here at Toddler Tree, since they have been busy making Easter decorations during Creativity Class for our next week´s Easter Parade Party at the park!
They worked on their fine motor skills using ribbon to weave different types of baskets, while reviewing colors. They also worked on pellon eggs, coloring them with different shades of markers and then creating “magic” by spraying water mist on them and watching the colors blend together! Paper chains were made, using all the colors of the rainbow. Easer Bunny figures were traced on paper using sponges and rainbows were created by using the different colors. All in all, colors have been greatly used during Creativity Class this week!
Our topics this week included talking about the Easter Bunny, making baskets, coloring eggs, learing the verbs of hide, seek and find and role playing being the Easter Bunny hiding the eggs!
During Physical Educations they have enjoyed dancing to the song “Bunny Hop” as well as other cute Easter Bunny songs, hoping, jumping and running! Following directions while working out has been lots of fun for them too!
Stories read to them this week inlude Easter Bunny Saves the Day, Barney´s Easter Basket, The Big Bunny and the Easter Egg, Bunny´s Easter Hunt, Petter Cotton Tail´s Easter Egg Hunt, and Mr. Rabbit and the Lovely Present.
Our proud leaders this week: Eduardo, Lilia María, Andrés, Emilia and Eva.
Next week will be our last week before having our Spring Break time. We will be talking about what a parade is, and reviewing concpets of Easter and Spring. Of course, we are looking forward in celebrating our Easter Parade Party next Wednesday, March 16th.
We would like to thank all the moms who have brought egg shells to school. Our students will be painting them on Monday and filling them with confetti on Tuesday. They will be taken to the park and we will hide all these egg shells so they can find them. It is important for them to take a basket or some kind of container to place the eggs they will find that morning!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
