Our Terrific Tigers had a lot of fun this past week talking about pets…..most of them told us that they had a pet at home. They love to talk about animals, and they enjoyed looking at them in pictures, videos and playing with plush animals as well.
This week we began by introducing our four legged friends: dogs, puppies, cats & kittens….. We also taught the Terrific Tigers about fish, birds, turtles, frogs, hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits.
During Creativity Class our kids were busy making turtle and puppy crafts! As well as an awesome bunny mobile! In Physical Education they have enjoyed rehearsing for their end of the year festival and doing different kinds of exercises with cool music.
Story time has been nice since the books read have been all about pets. Titles such as Playful Puppies, Sam the Dog, I am Lucky the Cat, The 3 Little Kittens, Baby Touch and Feel: Pets, Baby Einstein: Neighborhood Animals, Curious George and the Bunny, The Velveteen Rabbit, and Friendly Pets .
One of the high lights of the week was actually seeing and petting some cute pets. Miss Mely (Tiny Turtles) brought Sparky her dog to school, Miss Dany (Tiny Turtles) brought her puppy Fiona, and Miss Sofi brought Glen Cookie her small dog to school! Miss Karen (Big Bears) brought her pet cat (Donato). Our kids loved to have them in their classroom.
Finally the biggest highlight of the week was celebrating children’s day at the kinder on Friday! The kids got a special visit from a very large dog that a vet was so kind to share with us, enjoyed yummy snacks and treats, danced and played lots of games!!
Next week will begin to talk about Jungle Animals! We will be talking about elephants, giraffes, lions and zebras!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend together as a family!
