March 2018 Week 1
Hello and happy Friday!
This week we wrapped up our “Family Tree” theme and kicked off our “All About Me!” theme. We finished our very first self-portraits! We traced our eyes, our nose, our mouth, our ears, and our head in our portraits.
We also continued our ABC Handprint project with the letter “R!” We mixed black and white to make the color gray. The teacher painted our hands gray. We glued on two black triangle shaped ears and a black tail with white stripes. We also glued on two eyes upon a black rectangle and a pink nose. Can you guess what we made? We made rambunctious raccoons! “R” says “ruh ruh” rabbit, rainbow, rat, ribbon, rock, rocket, rose. We colored a rhino in the shape of a capital “R” too!
We did a dabbing worksheet making the shape of a heart, too!
Wonderful work this week, Little Lambs!
We’ll see you tomorrow at our Open House!

Hello and happy Friday!
For the last week of this month, we continued learning about zoo animals. Using flash cards and books, we showed to the kids some other animals that we can see in the zoo. Some of these animals are white tiger, lemur, hippopotamus, and more. We also did a review on animal that live in the ocean, in the farm, or those that can be seen at the zoo.
For the zoo animal craft this week, we made monkeys using paper cups. We painted them brown and we added the mouths, eyes, and the tails that are made of pipe cleaners. We also made hippopotamus paper plate craft. We learned that hippos have short legs, and huge mouths. They also like to spend their time in the water.
The letter for this week is letter Uu. U is for umbrella, unicorn, and unicycle. For the craft, we made a unicorn. After the letter craft, we practiced tracing letter U worksheet. The Busy Bees also tried to put the letters in order from letter A to U this week.
For our number and counting recognition, we focused on number 12 this week. We’ve been using blocks and other manipulative in the class for the kids to practice counting objects. We also did number worksheet after counting from 1 to 12. Then, we did a game where they need to find the numbers in the room.
Great job, Busy Bees!
Have a nice weekend and see you all next week!

Ready Rabbits/Clever Cats
Hello and Happy Friday!
This week our Ready Rabbits and Clever Cats learned about the Japanese holiday of "Hinamatsuri". We made a "Ohinasama" and "Odairisama" with paper cups and origami paper in Japanese class with Ms. Yuka.
We have also been preparing for our Open House! We are going to talk about police officers and have some exciting police related activities for the Ready Rabbits/Clever Cats and their parents. We can't reveal what we are going to use this for yet, but we made "wanted" posters with our parents' pictures and painted them with coffee to make them look aged. It was a new discovery for the kids and was a fun activity for everyone :)
We have lots more prepared but it's all a surprise!
We are very excited for tomorrow's Open House!
See you tomorrow Ready Rabbits/Clever Cat parents!
Have a nice weekend to all :)
