TODDLER ROOM – MS. AMANDA’S CLASS
Back to School
Summer Recap: During the summer our Toddler Room are enjoyed a new theme each week that consists with fun crafts, yummy cookery, cool science activities and of course virtual field trips. The July themes consisted of Party in the USA, Outer Space, Down of the Farm, Under the Sea and Volcanoes! The children watched fireworks for our virtual field trip, made a solar system craft, learned about farming, ate yummy fish shaped pizzas and also did a volcano science experiment. For their Montessori work period, they focused on matching colors, numbers, and animals. They did a few sensorial play jobs with water animals. They practice many practical life jobs such as pouring and scooping. We are constantly changing the jobs around to challenge the children as they grow.
During the first week of August, we ended the summer program, with an Olympics themed week! The children enjoyed creating fun Olympic crafts and creating medals out of turkey bacon, and pancakes. They also participated in a few rounds of Olympic games. August 12th began the brand-new school year and we were so happy to welcome returning friends back, and brand new friends to our classroom. During the month of August, we talked all about, staying healthy and clean, during these times, revisiting hand washing, and social distancing.
September News: In the month of September, the children will be working on their motor skills doing different spooning jobs, they will also practice letters a-d. The theme of the month will be “All About Me”, during circle time we will discuss how to make friends, what we do at school, and how to care for ourselves. The book of the month will be “Yo! Yes?”, and we will also learn about the 7 continents.
Friendly Reminder: During these times our mosquito friends like to come out and bite. Please apply mosquito repellent if you are noticing bites and to prevent future bites.
