Fun at the Beach!

This week was super interesting! Our Terrific Tigers observed our very full calendar of 31 numbers on Tuesday, the last day of May, and came to kinder on Wednesday with an empty calendar with just one number for the new month of June! They transitioned nicely from May to June and have started to understand that this school year is coming to an end…. We also transitioned from talking about sea creatures to now starting to talk about the beach.

Vocabulary words included this week were: summer, sun, sand, sea, fun at the beach, sunglasses, sunscreen, shovel, pail, castle, snorkeling, swimsuit, surfing. Most of them have been talking about previous experiences they have had on the beach and how they have liked playing with the sand! We have showed them posters of different activities we can do during summer, and have been showing them real objects used on the beach, such as beach balls, towels, sand, shells, sunglasses, and they even got to wear sunscreen! They liked to play with the shovel and pails as well.

During our Creativity Class our Terrific Tigers have been busy helping us out with the scenery that will be displayed in our upcoming end of the year program next week. They have used green paint and helped made a tree with its trunk and branches. Our students have also started using “bigger” training scissors, learning how to introduce their thumb and other fingers in to the opening of the scissors in order to use the “open-close” movements to cut.

Physical Education class has been all about rehearsing for the dances they will be presenting to you next Friday. They are really excited and already know their movements for that special day. They are well aware that their parents will be there taking pictures of them!  We hope they don´t get nervous!

Stories read this week are: Imagination Vacation, Time for a Snack, At the Beach with Dora, Dora Goes  for a Ride, Scavenger Hunt, Abby´s Sunny Days, Go, Diego, Go!, &  Swim, Boots, Swim!

Our special leader this week were Federico, Eva, David, Victor and Gabriel. Even though our school year is almost finished, they still get a kick out of showing their classmates what is in their surprise bag!

We would like to remind you our our It’s a Zoo! program coming up on Friday, June 10 at Candy Gum in Plaza San Pedro. Details are in the printed newsletter.
