Our Terrific Tigers had such a fun time getting ready for our Easter Parade! We painted eggshells together, put confetti inside them and pasted paper covers. They were also quite busy making the decorations you saw all around the park. They simply love to see thier own work being used to decorate the place! It made the whole park look so pretty!
The Parade was a great success! The kids enjoyed getting together and participating in our planned activities, such as bunny face painting, sifting the eggs out of the water, stuffing carrots with marshmallows, and swatting balloons. After these activities they participated in the traditional parade, going around the park in their cars, scooters or tricycles. We were impressed to see all of the creativity used into decorating such vehicles! The egg hunt was the main attraction for our little ones and they were having so much fun looking for the egg shells and collecting them in their baskets or bags. Of course, breaking the egg shells on each others´ head was the highlight of the morning! We all got our head full of confetti! It was so nice to see that all of our students were able to attend and were happy to see all of the moms and some dads, as well! We thank you so much for your support!
During the days before the Easter parade took place, we were getting ready for such event, such as explaining to them what would happen on this day, and we even decorated a tricycle together, using colored paper and balloons, and explained to them that they would use something like that on the party. Most of them were able to tell us how their car was decorated! We talked about wind and kites and the kids had the opportunity to feel the air from a hair dryer and see a real kite. We explained to them that a kite needs lots of wind in order to be able to fly!
We also celebrated St. Patricks´s day on Thursday, and most of our students wore something green to school that day! During Creativity Class they made their own shamrocks with green color and glitter.
Our leaders this week were David, Gabriel, Victor and Lazaro. Victor and Lazaro both celebrated their 3rd. birthday at school. Their parents brought cupcakes and Mr. Mike sang the happy birthday song to them, using his special accordion and making the birthday crown.
When we come back from our Easter Holidays, on Monday, April 4th, we will be talking about the Farm, vocabulary words on the farm, farm food, and farm animals. We will also be having a photographer take individual and group pictures that week as well.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season together with your family and enjoy these special moments with them. We will be looking forward in seeing your little ones back in April. Have a great time!
