Valentine’s Day is coming! And to celebrate this special day, we had a jolly party! Our students got to exchange Valentine’s letters (made by them) with their friends; they enjoyed a yummy snack and got the visit of the mail man, who gave them a special treat.
On Wednesday police officers dropped by the kinder and had a brief explanation on the traffic signals, and the kids were very excited to get on their motorcycle.
Turtles enjoyed this week’s explorations activities, especially when they got to play with the doctors cart and kit, wearing doctors robes and nurses headbands, they were really into their role! Kids made a food project this week related to oral hygiene: a mouth with apple slices, peanut butter and white marshmallows. We also had a good time with an outdoor exploration activity, taking turns as the policeman with the signs of stop & go while the rest of their classmates rode in the cars.
Kiddos were very enthusiastic about their creativity projects, related to the themes of love, dentist and doctor. First they made some prints with red and purple paint using heart shaped sponges. One project that had them very focused was the doctor’s kit, they pasted a gauze, bandages, cotton swabs, tongue depressors and soft cotton. To review the dentists theme turtles had to clean the stains of markers on a mouth covered in contact paper, using a toothbrush and toothpaste.
