May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii! The Fucsia toddlers discovered different sea animals and shells and made lei necklaces to celebrate May. They also practiced a few Hawaiian words, sang songs, danced hula, and experimented with a few hula implements. The “Coconut Soap” song was often requested at circle time. This song is a fun movement song where the toddlers pretend to wash different parts of their bodies.
May has been a lot of fun as well as providing cultural learning moments for the toddlers! The toddlers also enjoyed the opportunity to learn about different reptiles when the Reptile Man visited our school. A few of the toddlers even touched the large boa constrictor. We look forward to the continuing of beautiful weather in June and watching the finishing touches come together on our toddler playground!
