We had a great time learning about the different types of transportation: air, water and land. Big Bears expressed themselves with enthusiasm throughout the week. They also were able to identify the different sounds each vehicle makes.
The kids were very excited with the Firefighters visit. They were really impressed by their performance. All of them had a chance to see how Mr. Mike and Miss María Elena role played wearing the complete firefighter suit which weighs around 35 kilos!! Watching how they perform made us conscious of the great effort these community helpers do in keeping us safe! They also took turns holding the water hose, experiencing the sensation of hosing a large amount of water. They really enjoyed dressing up and feeling like firefighters.
During gym time with Miss Mely, they had a great time boarding an imaginary airplane and rowing their boats learning how to use an oar. With Ms. Cristy Big Bears learned the difference between sinking and floating, and made some airplanes and helicopters.
Next week besides reviewing community helpers and transportation we will also learn about space and our solar system.
Have a fun weekend!
Ms. Caya & Maria Elena
