We appreciate parents’ support in making Sharing Day a success. Thank you for letting your child bring toys from home only on Thursdays.
Previous Month’s Activities
The children celebrated Christmas:
– We decorated pinecones with green paint and sparkles then put them up on our Christmas tree.
– We practiced singing carols like Jungle Bells and Deck the Halls. At music class, we also played instruments such as drums, bells, shakers and boomwhackers.
– We developed our fine motor skills in practicing to cut out magazines and Christmas cards.
– We expressed our creativity through various arts and crafts like decorating Christmas trees, candy canes, gingerbread man, etc.
– We also talked about Santa Claus and family celebrations during the holidays.
Current Interest
The children have shown interest in animals. We’ll be focusing on animal names, characteristics, food and habitat.
