SEPTEMBER 2019

Butterfly

Hello Wonderful Toddler Parents,

Thank you all those who were able to join us this month in our parent meeting. Our meeting was about our language, as adults to our children, and how we can best avoid saying “no”. I hope you all are practicing at home so we can hear your experiences at our next meeting! If you were unable to attend and would like more information, please email me and I will send you some notes and ideas.

            September just flew on by, it was truly a great month with everyone settling into our daily routine and ready to learn how to use the materials in the classroom and our second-year students never hesitate to help out our newest peers. We have welcomed the Fall season with open arms this year, the children are so happy being outside once again in outdoor environment and on the playground. This year, our playground was upgraded with a slide and other fun activities for our toddlers to jump, run, balance, and much more—the children love it out there. 

Our Fall Festival is creeping up faster than you can imagine! Stay on the lookout on how you can help and contribute this year with our classroom theme basket. There will be food and fun for the entire family. We hope to see everyone there and thank you for all you contribute to our school.

            As we had mentioned last month, we have a new baking recipe every month. This month we had something so simple and easy to make at home, but heads up, it can get a bit messy! Recipe is down below!! 

2 Ripe bananas                                                           ½ cup Creamy peanut butter

3tbsp unsweetened cocoa                                         ¾ cup oats

Peel and mash banana into a mixing bowl. 

We mash the banana with a whisk. 

Then add one ingredient in at a time and mix in between pouring each one. 

Spray muffin tin with cooking spray before pouring in mixture. 

Have child Scoop mixture with a spoon into muffin tin. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min.

Hello Hummingbird Families, 

Fall is here and the weather is finally cooling down, we are all so excited about this! 

Our playground is coming along, the children have been enjoying the double slide that they get to use with their friends. And recently we had the sandbox installed which has been a hit! With it being new we are working on instilling the rules and doing our best to remove sand from their shoes but wanted to be sure parents were aware.  

For the month of September the children were able to take turns baking some simple muffins with three ingredients: cocoa, peanut butter, and banana. For this month they will be baking corn bread. We highly encourage involving your toddler in the kitchen at home, this is one of the prefer activities in the class. 

The children have adjusted well into the daily routine in class. Each day during transition times we sing with them, typically taking turns in Spanish and in English. Here are a couple of songs and poem that we have been working on (Apple Tree is a poem).
