February is here! A month that represents love and friendship, with lots of new vocabulary words to learn. During this month we will have several visits from community helpers such as: Police officer, mailman, firefighter, and rescue team. On Wednesday police officers visited Toddler Tree and gave a brief demonstration. The kids were very excited to get on their patrol car!
This week during exploration children enjoyed playing with construction helmets and tools, and also they played with community helpers puppets.
One of this week’s key themes was “baker” so today kids were all helping to decorate cookies. They spread frosting on their cookie and then topped them off with some sprinkles.
During art, kids made a police officer hat using paper plate and blue paint. They also used crayons on a printable picture of tools. Garbage collector was another theme on this week’s list, and turtles had a special activity. They got to the classroom and found lots of wrappers (playing the part of trash) laying on the floor, and everyone helped in picking it up. Kiddos enjoyed and learned o put the garbage in the trashcan.

Valentine´s Day celebration is coming up on Wednesday February 14th!! The Party Hosts will provide snacks, so instead of sending a lunchbox on that day, please just send a water thermos or juice.
The kids will exchange Valentines with their friends, we have 12 students in our Tiny Turtles class so make sure to send a bag for your child to collect candy. If you would like to send a special treat for your child’s classmates, don’t forget to label only who it’s from, so we make it easier for the kids to pass out.
