365 New Days to Shine崭新的365天熠熠生辉
We are back with plenty of energy, after a nice winter break. The dream has come true and we are already settled in our new campus. Our students are actively engaged in a discovery process of their new learning space. We would like to also give a warm welcome to our new team member, Ms. Mila. What a way to start the year!
These first days, our toddlers have been expressing enthusiasm meeting their friends and teachers again. They have been readjusting with having a routine and they have demonstrated how much they have grown and matured during the past three weeks.
Attitudes such as solidarity with their peers and care for the environment have been seen these days. We have also witnessed countless hugs, gestures of affection, nice words, and helpfulness. The students have also demonstrated their empathy, responsibility and how to compromise with others.
We are delving right into group activities such as food testing, reading time, singing, baking and of course our music time with Ms. Lauren. We are also very happy for having participated in the Art Project that involved the whole school community. Our toddlers have demonstrated one more time that they are very capable of participating in a big school wide event and we are extremely proud of them!
On another note, we are pleased to see how our students keep enjoying the materials and activities available to them in the classroom. They are also having a ton of fun in the new playground outside, no one notices the cold weather when there is so much space and new toys to play with: cars, hula-hops, seesaws, balls, a sandpit with a huge sled. They can’t stop climbing and challenging themselves to overcome fears. They all are proud of their achievements. We are excited for the good weather to come to take even more advantage of this huge new open space.
Concepts such wet-dry, cold-hot are constantly being reinforced during outdoor time to that they can learn and internalize through self-experience. Every moment of the day gives us an opportunity to acquire new vocabulary, such the characteristics of objects– we are currently working on discovering objects that are magnetic. Children seem curious with these new experiences and they are putting effort in learning those new words and using them in context.
And to conclude this post, we would like to thank our wonderful parents who attended our Christmas show and classroom holiday party: moms, dads, grandparents and siblings, thank you all!
