April has been a short but busy month! The toddlers have enjoyed the new, more advanced works in the classroom. We have also taken advantage of the beautiful weather by visiting the animals around the school and enjoying our outside time.
We have had a few insect themed works including pattern to insect matching, puzzles, bees with numbers, and insect matching in the sensory table. The warmer weather has also brought out a few insect friends on the playground that the toddlers have enjoyed identifying and watching.
Our water works and “garage” lock box have been very popular works over the last month. The toddlers had to use many skills such as hand-eye coordination and fine motor control while focusing on these works. They practiced pouring water from one pitcher into two smaller containers as well as squeezing water out of a sponge with tongs.
The “garage” had a key to unlock each designated stall for the police car, ambulance, and fire truck. These works were in use so often they didn’t stay on the shelves long!
We had a great time at the Earth Day Concert with Eric Ode at the end of April! The songs and stories had the toddlers singing, dancing, and laughing!
In May the toddlers will be expressing their love for their moms with a painting project. The toddlers of Fucsia will also learn about Hawaii and flowers, as May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii!
