NIDO ROOM #1
Back To School
Summer Recap: Summer went by so fast for us this year as we are growing, although the summer heat made it hard to get adventure time every day, on cooler days we took a look at nature in the fresh air. Over summer we practiced our shapes and colors. While eagerly waiting for the official school year to start.
September Recap: Our new school year had officially started in September. We welcomed the new month by hand painting and reading the children a welcome poem. We did many art projects with paint and the children’s hands or feet. We enjoyed making a school bus out of your Childs’ foot prints so show your loved ones, as well as a pencil and some caterpillars. We started the learning with developing motor skills, rolling, placing and picking up items, using the classroom materials that we have. For our enrichment we are learning new words from our poem and recognizing objects we use while painting, such as the paint and the brushes. We are excited for the school year we have full enrollments which means more friends to grow up with!
October Recap: October was focused on the five senses, we read some books and used ideas from the books as inspiration for the activities. Such as singing songs about the five senses. We did five senses activities to help the babies learn about sound, sight, smell, touch and taste. The lessons introduced them to each of the five senses one at a time. We did many more hand and foot paintings and displayed them around the classroom. For our enrichments we had the babies stretch their finger and toes, getting in touch with their motor skills. We got to experience new feelings with the cold, wet paint and dry paper.
November Recap: We have had a lot of fun using finger puppets in relation to healthy bodies and harvest. We also made a fruit collage with hand and foot print paintings, as well as vegetable paintings too. Our Harvest feast was a joy. Thank you to all who participated. We read many new books from our bookfair and sang songs about being thankful. We also did an activity to work on their motor skills and did a pumpkin finger painting activity.
December Recap: This month we worked on oral language and used Christmas story telling books to implement language. We also talked about people and places and what they celebrate during these holidays. We read many holiday books to the children. We also did holiday fall and autumn sensory activities, and many painting activities. We enjoyed singing to the children with our new holiday music and seeing the babies smiling while the music was playing.
