We have started our second month of the year! It is always nice to see our students´ expressions when they come in the classroom and they notice that the bulletin board has been changed to a different theme, related to the new month that is just beginning! Of course, this one, is the moth of friendship and love….we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day at Toddler Tree very soon!
We started this week talking about love and friendship to our Terrific Tigers. We explained what Valentine´s Day is and how we need to be nice and take good care of our friends. During Creativity Class they started working on their Sponge Heart Prints that created the base of their valentines puppets! They were very quick to recognize the heart shape and the different colors they used to print these hearts.
We also started this week to talk to our little ones about community helpers. We talked about police officers and were happy to receive a visit on Wednesday of two police officers that went to our kinder to talk about traffic rules and how to listen and obey the rules. They also learned about garbage collectors and the importance of keeping garbage in the trash can to help mantain a clean and healthy envirnoment. Finally, we talked about bakers and they were thrilled to decorate their own cupcakes, pretending to be bakers!
Books read this week included: Arthur´s Valentne Countdown, Clifford´s Valentine, Everyone has Important Jobs to Do, and Elmo´s Valentine.
Our leaders this week were Felipe Treviño, Betty, Sebastian and Bernardo! We celebrated Sebastian Tarno’s birthday on Tuesday. He turned 3 and was happy to share this special day with his parents that visited him in our classroom and shared cupcakes with everyone. Of course, he had his special birthday crown made with Mr. Mike.
Next week will be a short week as we have a holiday on Monday but starting Tuesday we will continue to talk about more community helpers!
We hope you have a wonderful long weekend!
