Dear Terrific Tigers Parents,
Week # 4 has finished already! During this past week we talked about the Family and its members. The vocabulary words used during this week were: mother, father, brother, sister, baby, grandmother, and grandfather. We sang about our family using finger puppets to represent each family member. Some of them even mentioned who their brothers or sisters were. We used different types of hats and props to dress up as mother, father, grandfather and grandmother, the kids had a lot of fun dressing up as them.
During Creativity Class this week they worked on different techniques and colors, such as yellow, green, and blue. They used paintbrushes to paint on plates their yellow happy faces, green sick faces and blue sad faces. Finally they also practiced their fine motor skills ripping china paper and pasting the little pieces onto their Mexican Flag.
Books read this week included titles such as: My Mommy & I, Daddy & Me, Babies,! Who´s my Mommy? My Grandma & I, and My Grandpa!
Our Cooperative Play Time included activities such as making towers with blocks, separating the different colored chips into the containers, picking items out and placing them in ice cube trays, working on puzzles and using the peg boards.
One of their favorite activities of the day is the “Surprise Bag”, where the leader shows his/her classmates what is inside his/her special bag and everyone gets a chance to see what it is and talk about it! They really enjoy being the leader of the day!
We are very happy to welcome into our Terrific Tiger family Ricardo (Richy) Flores González! He has transitioned very nicely into our daily routine as well as quickly befriending all our Terrific Tigers.
Next week our theme will be house and the different parts it has in it. We would like to remind you that next Friday, September 16th is a National Holiday and we will not be attending school that day. We hope you enjoy spending time with your little ones at home!
We hope you have a very pleasant weekend!
Sincerely, Mrs. Martha & Mrs. Sofi
