Welcome November! A month that brings us the opportunity to share with our loved ones, and to remind all the good things that we have in our lives; we have so much to be thankful for!
Our Tiny Turtles are starting the month with a lot of excitement! November’s theme is the harvest, so in this first week we covered fun themes like fruits, dairy and vegetables. Exploration: we made a variety of activities to get in touch with different textures, like our yogurt finger painting, free exploration with red and blue buttons, green felt and cinnamon sticks as an invitation to make an apple tree. Kids got very excited with the garden vegetable printing, they loved to dip the veggies on the bowls filled with paint of different colors. We also made a fruit salad, our own version, using grapes, bananas, strawberries, blueberries and watermelon. The children helped mix all fruits in a big bowl and afterwards they gave them a bite! A yummy and sweet treat to end the week!
One of their favorite subjects is creativity class with Miss Cristy, and this week was full with great projects such as the food collage, kids made prints of a banana, orange, apple, and lemon. On top of these fruits they poured some “milk” (white glue) and then they out the finishing touch adding some glitter. Turtles also made a veggies print project, pasting on top of them some “roots” using green raffia. Kids also loved making their slice of watermelon using a paper plate, paintbrush, red paint, green paint, black paint and a q tip.
We would like to let you know of our HEB visit, so Tiny Turtles can experience firsthand our harvest topics. This activity is planned for Thursday November 13th at 9:00am. We would love to see you there!
