Our children had been learning about rabbits for a week. Finally, they got a chance to see and touch a live bunny – our teacher Ms. Tina has brought her pet animal named Floppy to the classroom! We believe that the best way of learning is through a hands-on experience!
While free play is very important for toddlers’ well-being, the structured learning is necessary for young children in order for them to gain understanding of basic math concepts and recognition of letters and shapes. Using puppets is an effective teaching strategy that makes learning easy and fun!
Children are curious and like to explore. During the winter season, there is a unique opportunity to show little ones some snow experiments. The snow science is simple enough for preschoolers to understand and make predictions and conclusions. Such lessons help children develop their cognitive abilities and expand their knowledge about the outside world.
Ms. Natasha’s children observed how the snow was melting in a bin. Then they got a chance to see how an ice water turns into an ice again after being put into the refrigerator for a couple of hours.
After the students saw how the little snowman has melted, they have been asked to work with a play-dough in order to recreate that image. They have successfully completed the task!
Our oldest students had a cooking class today! They made Valentine cookies for their parents!
Young children love squishing, rolling, sculpting, and molding with dough. Lessons like this one give children an opportunity to use their imagination and improve fine motor skills. Our students were very creative cutting out hearts of different sizes and combining them together. They also enjoyed decorating cookies with icing and sprinkles. We hope parents will be happy with these gifts, as we know for sure: they have been made with love! ♥
