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!
After wrapping up winter, we started on Wednesday, 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, we made bird feeders out of fruitloops as well! (Some couldn’t resist the temptation during the activity and had theirs as a snack <3 ). They were very quick to recognize the heart shape and the different colors they used to print these hearts.
Books read this week included: Arthur´s Valentine Countdown, Clifford´s Valentine, Valentine bugs, Don’t Take Your Elephant to School and No David .
We are also very excited about our upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration! The mailman will be visiting Toddler Tree on Wednesday, February 14th to pass out Valentines for everybody. Because February Party Hosts will provide snacks, instead of sending a lunchbox on that day, please just send a water thermos. We will be making love notes and cards and our students will exchange Valentines with their friends. Your child will need a bag or box to collect their notes and treats. Also, if you would like to send a special treat for your child’s classmates, make sure to label only who it’s from.
Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!
Keep in mind we won’t be having class on Monday, so see you next Tuesday!
