After finishing with Valentines and the great party we had last week, we started this week with new topics…Transportation and Community Helpers were are main focus this week. Our Terrific Tigers enjoyed learning about the different means of transportation, such as land, water and air, and were able to give several examples of each. We have also been reviewing all the different Community Helpers we have been talking about during the morning.
We had a visit from the Firefighters.! This was the highlight of the week for our little ones.The kids really enjoyed the visit as they got to see the fire truck and watched Miss Maria Elena and Mr. Mike dress up as firefighters. Some of our toddlers wanted to dress up as well, and they got the opportunity to wear these special outfits! The most exciting moment was probably when the kids got to spray water with the fire hose.
In Creativity Class, our students had a great time helping Miss Cristy make decorations and paste them on the window looking out of The Bears´classroom. All the decorations you see as you arrive at the kinder, were made by our students and they pasted by them as well, with the help of their teachers. They get so excited knowing that their work of art is being seen by everyone! They also had a great time making their own fire truck.
In Physical Development they also enjoyed acting out the song “Hurry, Hurry, Drive the Firetruck.” We had a little firetruck the kids carried around, turned the corner, climbed a ladder, and sprayed the hose.
Books read this week include: The Little Engine that Could, Mickey Mouse´s Book, of Cars & Trucks, Mr. Charlie, The Fireman´s Freiend, Trains, Boats, & more Trains, and Vehicles.
Our leaders for this week were Emilia, David, Victor, Gabriel and Federico.
Overall, it was week full of magic and fun! We hope the Tigers have great memories of this wonderful experience. Till next week… Happy Friday, everyone!!!
