This week was full of excitement for our Big Bears! First they learned about love and friendship,as well as our wonderful community helpers; such as doctors, nurses, and the police officers who came to offer a nice presentation, reinforcing that a traffic light has three colors which mean the following: red-stop, yellow- be careful, and green- go! Big Bears enjoyed the police officer’s observations and it was great that he even showed all traffic signs in English! Our students know perfectly they have to buckle up in order to be safe in a car.
Thursday we took extra time in our morning routine to allow children to experience taking care of and brushing their teeth.We made several art activities, including valentine letters, role-playing community helpers, a doctor´s bag and we even used real toothpaste to brighten and whiten a paper smile!
We have been developing their motor skills, both fine and gross by making them trace their names and working in physical development and coordination. They really enjoyed all the different type of activities.
This Friday was really fun, having our Valentine’s Party! They had the chance to share all the candies that each one brought and also learned a rhyme. We also had the opportunity to receive Mr. Mike dressed as a mailman and delivering Valentines to all our Big Bears. You should have seen their expressions, they were so excited! Please ask them to tell you about it.
Crayons and glue

And one is for YOU!
We are still practicing the numbers and developing holding crayons properly doing prewriting exercises, following the dots with their names.
As teachers we always want the best for your child because we love them with all our hearts.
