Surfing into Summer

Summer is here, with its sunny and warm days, filled with fun and laughter! We are now in the month of June and tiny turtles are going to enjoy lots of summer fun concepts! This week they learned about summer, sun, sand, sea, fun at the beach (sunglasses, sunscreen), shovel, pail, castle, snorkeling, swimsuit and surfing.

During exploration time we had activities with sand, like playing with sand and strainers, taking them outside to the water and sand tables for some sensory play. They were really into our “Beach prop box” filled with items related to the beach like life vest, goggles, sunglasses, beach balls, flippers and sunscreen. Today kids enjoyed an ocean snack “Dolphin sandwich”, tuna salad mixed with mayonnaise and corn on white bread cutout as a dolphin. Kids helped out making this yummy recipe that took us on a journey under the sea!

In creativity time with Miss Cristy children enjoyed helping out in the process of making the set for our end of the year program.

In physical development class kids are rehearsing their dance moves for our end of the year program “It’s a Zoo”, which will be held at Candy Gum next Friday June 10th. Turtles are super excited to show Mama and Papa their best dance moves!

Have a nice weekend!
