October Week 1

This week we had the opportunity to learn about shapes using different materials. Big Bears learned that a circle is round and has no corners. A triangle has three straight sides and a square has four sides and four corners. They realized that any of these shapes can be found around us such as circle (clock), triangle (pizzas) and squares on picture frames.

During creativity we painted a pizza using different shapes and colors.The final activity was to match foamy shapes with the pizza figure. During gym with Ms. Mely, Big Bears enjoyed shaking maracas, moving to the music.

Last week we also practiced the rhyme: The tree. We also learned a new song “Columbus, Columbus” where each one took turns and in front of their peers repeated it. You should have seen their faces as they were singing it! The song goes like this:

“Columbus, Columbus,Columbus,Columbus

He sailed across the sea

And landed in America in 1492

La Niña, La Pinta y La Santa Maria!”

As you all know on Tuesday October 31, we will celebrate Halloween with a party and parade. Start looking for costumes so your child can participate in our catwalk. Try to find simple costumes for their own comfort. We also suggest it should allow your child to move freely. If possible, use make up instead of mask so it won’t obstruct their sight.

Finally, please help your child collect and send leaves (different shapes and colors). You might look in your own garden or at the park. We want them to know the main colors of Fall/Autumn besides reviewing the rest of the seasons.

Have a great weekend!

Ms. Caya & Miss Karen
