Wow what a year! I can’t believe this year is over. We went through many transitions during this year and I’m so impress of our student’s capacity to adapt and engage in different ways during virtual and face to face instructions. It was not easy, but we did it together!  Ms. Brooke and I want to thank all the parents who shared with us their precious child, let us enter into your home and be part of your family. We are thankful for each moment we spent together and being part of your child’s first steps in formal education.   We want to congratulate all our students for their hard work during the hard moments. Remember, you can handle it! Remember your child and your family will always be part of our school family. We will be here if you need anything!    Happy summer!

This week we talked about how the children feels about transitioning to kindergarten. We talked about being excited, proud and occasionally nervous. We talked about how it is ok to feel nervous when we face a new situation. Also, we talked about feeling excited about kindergarten and learning new things such as reading, science and P.E. The children spent the week playing with letters, shapes, creating patterns and using different art materials. It is excited to see how the children play share and take turns with their peers and try to solve conflicts. Esta semana hablamos sobre cómo se sienten los niños sobre la transición al Kínder. Hablamos de emocionados, orgullosos y en ocasiones nerviosos. Hablamos de que está bien, sentirse nervioso cuando nos enfrentamos a una nueva situación. Además, hablamos sobre sentirnos entusiasmados al ir kindergarten y aprender cosas nuevas como lectura, ciencias y educación física. Los niños pasaron la semana jugando con letras, formas, creando patrone

  This week, we learned about kindergarten. We learned that kindergarten and our classroom are similar. Some kindergarten has learning centers and we also have different learning centers. Kindergarten have rules and teachers expect certain behaviors and we also have rules in our classroom. It was fun to learn a little bit about our kindergarten!  Also, we spent our play in the different learning centers.     At manipulative, the children practice taking turns and sharing materials with peers, practice visual discrimination and solving problem skills. At science, the children created patterns and play with magnets. At literacy, the children played with letters and sounds and literacy games such as opposite words and finding the beginning sound in words. At dramatic play, the children pretended to set a table and cook their favorite food and at blocks, the children use different blocks and played cooperatively to build amazing structures.   Our students at home use blocks and animals to

This week, we continue learning about insects. We learned about some insects that can be hurtful to plants and flowers called aphids. Also, we learned about decomposition, it is when a plant or part of animals break in tiny pieces and some insects like to eat them. That is why we see flies around garbage. We decided to observe a banana go through the process of decomposition. The children notice how the banana changed color and became softer with the pasting of the day. Also, in science we practice to sort and count 1:1 insect. In math, we discuss how butterflies’ wings are symmetry. That mean same size and shape and we created symmetry butterflies with pattern blocks and use snap cubes to measure caterpillars and sort them by size.  At literacy center, the children sorted by letters and matched uppercase and lower-case letters. At art table, the children painted beautiful butterflies, drew pictures of ants and created a representation of their favorite insect with playdough. Our stude
