We have just finished our week #2! Our Terrific Tigers are getting to feel well adapted and they enjoy their daily activities very much! During this second week we talked about their body parts. Vocabulary words such as hand, face, shoulders, tummy, feet, toes, legs, knees, and items related to their bodies, such as clothes (socks & shoes) were seen during the morning. We also talked about, read books and sang songs about the different feelings they can have, such as being happy, sad, angry, sleepy, sick or surprised.
We did several activities in Exploration Time related to their body parts. Activities such as tracing their life size silhouettes and having them paint them, while reviewing their body parts; showing them several pictures of different body parts and having them recognize them and point on their own body where it is found, and they loved it when we used a feather to play “where am I tickling you?”, and they had to name that body part being tickled!
They are continuing to work very well in their Cooperative Play time. Activities such as inserting straws into plastic bottles, using pom-poms, working with containers with different colored coins and separating the coins by colors are their favorites!
Creativity Time is always enjoyed since they work actively with different colors and textures. This week we worked on our letter of the week which was “M is for Monkey”, we also printing their hands with red paint, decorated their life size human silhouettes and made different figurines out of play dough.
Physical Development is a fun class! They like to dance and do different movements to the music as well as playing different instruments! They practiced rolling themselves on mats, rolling the balls to each other, throwing balls into hoola hoops, playing the xylophone and singing the song: “Head, shoulders, knees and toes”, while touching these body parts.
As you can see, we had a very interesting week! Next week we will be talking about family members. We would like to remind you if you haven´t brought their box with family pictures on it, please do as soon as possible since we will be using them next week on our “Family” theme.
On Tuesday, September 6th we will have our Open House for our Terrific Tigers group, which will be held at 7:30 pm in our “green room”. We are really looking forward to seeing you and sharing some important information regarding our daily routine, as well as sharing lovely and fun experiences we have had with your little ones!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend and hope to see you on Tuesday evening.
Mrs. Martha & Miss. Sofi.
