What a special time of year as our hearts overflow with gratitude! Our Caterpillars have been busy creating, exploring and of course, learning through play. Miss Laura shared her family’s holiday tradition of hiding a pickle in the tree. The children had fun finding the pickle in our Christmas tree in the Dramatic Play room. They have been wrapping “gifts” and decorating the tree with beads and ornaments. They squealed with delight as we painted with our feet in the Art room. My, how that tickled! We’ve painted with cookie cutters, collaged with stickers and played with gingerbread playdough. We’ve counted, sorted and made patterns with jingle bells and pom poms making bracelets and filling ornaments. There are trains and tracks in the motor room and sit and spins for those that choose to be more active. Our reading loft is full of books to celebrate the season. We have been learning technique on how to snip and cut with scissors, and squeezing hole punches with all our might! The children’s eyes sparkled in awe as the Kindergarten class performed their Nativity play for us! They did a marvelous job and we thank them for sharing it with us. We are looking forward to having Jo delight is with her Nativity story next week. Thanks in advance Jo!
We are having a special snack on Friday December 21st. If you would like to share a family Christmas treat that meets our nutrition policy please let me know. Thank you!
Three weeks on vacation can be a long time for our little Caterpillars so as the time draws near for our return it would be helpful to share some of the photos of their smiling faces that I’ve shared with you over the past few months. Please take the time to double check to see if you’ve remembered to label their jackets and sweaters. We are looking forward to getting back in action!
