Toddler February Newsletter
January has come and gone! We had a very enjoyable month learning all about Arctic animals. We discovered how these animals stay warm in freezing temperatures by conducting our blubber experiment. We learned many intriguing facts about each animal and how they survive in the cold. The children really were fascinated about how these animals move and sound!! They loved getting the opportunity to act out each animal during gross motor time!!
It's already February and we can truly feel the love in the air! There is absolutely no better time to tell you how much we love and value your children! Your families are our inspiration! Teaching is probably the most heartwarming job around and helping your children grow and achieve makes everyday more meaningful! we sincerely thank you for all of your friendship, business, and referrals and wish you all a wonderful Valentine's Day to spend with your loved ones! This month we will focus on Community helpers, along with Valentine's Day. We will be making toothpaste slime, exploring how pipes work by using water and plastic tubing, pretending to be doctor and veterinarians in our dramatic play clinic, using our imaginations playing with construction vehicles and rocks in our sensory table, making tasty treats like a chef, discussing how important it is to love one another, and many other thought-provoking activities, experiments and crafts!!
