This week’s community helper was firefighters, and on Wednesday they came to kinder. The children were very excited to see them and their fire truck. We took some nice pictures for you; they’re on our facebook page.
Exploration time was filled with all sorts of fun activities, like playing with transportation toys, community helper’s puppets, transportation puzzles, role playing like firefighters with a collapsable fire truck and “hoses”, and playing with boats.
Tiny turtles had a blast in creativity time! So much to do! They made “roads” by pasting white tape on black paper to look like lanes. Turtles loved making some community helpers vechicles such as a garbage truck and a fire truck. Yesterday they got some tongue supressors which they painted with purple paint, and these are going to be transformed into an airplane next week! Today your little ones really had a super fun time in our yellow room, playing with water, rocks, corks and golf balls. Tiny Turtles loved to splash & splash!
This week kids were full of energy, more than usual- if that’s even possible! So we tried to remain very active. During physical development, Miss Mely had some great activities to do: playing with the tunnel, the colorful parachute, making a cone circuit pretending to be airplanes and arranging chairs like an airplane, using rafts and oars pretending to be rowing a boat, just like the song!
Hope you have a great weekend!
Miss Judy & Miss Karen
