Our main topics this week were focused on Christmas and all of the magic this special holiday brings. Vocabulary words that we reviewed this week were: wreath, chimney, fireplace, stockings, cookies, candy cane, and candy.
During Creativity Class we worked on reindeer tree ornaments and Christmas trees! They were also excited about making their own cookies. Cookie dough was given to them and they had to select from a variety of Christmas shaped cookie cutters and make their own cookie form. We baked them in an electric oven and finally, they were able to taste the own cookie that they made!
Another highlight of this week was our Christmas program on Tuesday. After weeks and weeks of practice, it is always a joy to see how our kids prepare themselves for this special event. Having this special family time with your kids after the performance is always very special for them! It was an honor to have you as our guests
During physical development we danced to many holiday tunes including “Rudolph the red nosed reindeer” and “Up on the Housetop.” We also used some antlers to do the “Reindeer Pokey.”
Several books were read to them during Story Time and they loved watching all the pictures of the vocabulary words we have been talking about: Santa, Christmas Tree, ornaments, Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, elves, Santa´s workshop, among others.
It has been such a joy to work with your children this semester. Each and every one of our students is special in different ways. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to teach them and watch them grow. We have cherished every moment we have shared with them!
We look forward to seeing them back in January to continue on this beautiful journey. On behalf of all the staff at Toddler Tree, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New year!
