Welcome back!! We are happy to be back into our routine again with our wonderful Terrific Tigers once more! We all had a nice time to relax and rest and are ready to continue with our daily activities until June! Time sure passes by so quickly when we are having so much fun!
April is here and with this new month comes a new theme: we have been talking this week about The Farm. We have seen new vocabulary words such as farmer, crops, animals, barn, fence, pond, hay, field, We also talked about farm food and how the farmers plant & grow food we eat, such as corn and beans. They now understand that farm animals can also provide food such as milk, eggs and butter from the milk! We focused this week on talking about cows and horses.
During Exploration Time they have been really interested with manipulating barn & farm objects, such as, toy animals, mud, grass and everything related to this theme. In Creativity Class we worked on muddy pigs, painting a pink pig with brown with some yarn so to make it look like it is splattered in mud! We also made mud in our classroom and played with tractors painting tracks with the mud! Physical Development Class has also been lots of fun for them since the music has been related to the farm and they have enjoyed “riding” on horses, listening to fun music.
Story Time has also been interesting for them with stories related to this theme. Books read this week include: At the Farm; The Big Red Barn; The Little Red Hen; The Farmer in the Dell; & Farmer Grover.
We also celebrated Maria Emilias birthday on Tuesday and Mr. Mikes birthday on Thursday! The kids watched Miss Mely make a crown for Mr. Mike, we hit a piñata, collected candy and shared some cupcakes!
Next week we will continue talking about The Farm and will focus more on talking about the animals we can find there.
Have a great weekend!!
