The Toddler C class has had a very exciting November! We welcomed a new friend, Carter, who is currently our youngest student in class. He is very nice and loves to explore and read.
You may have noticed some other new things in our classroom as well. We have a new kitchen stove, sink, and pantry set! Make sure to take a look at your next drop off. We will also be substituting our extra cubbies for some extra space here shortly!
For December, we plan on continuing our theme of friendship due to its importance. Afterwards, we will use our senses to explore the upcoming weather by identifying the cold by feeling ice and snow, as well as identifying the color white. Our sensory table will play a major role in our learning next month! They will be ice “fishing” and playing in our fake snow in order to understand the meaning of cold. Being able to experience with their senses will help them to grasp the meaning of next month’s lessons.
For those who would like to work at home with some of these experiences, our snow recipe is super easy! Start with 2.5 cups of baking soda and mix it with half a cup of white conditioner. It’s that simple! This recipe alone will feel very much like snow, it might even feel a little cold. However, I like to add some ice in it to further enrich their understanding and really give the children the feeling of snow!
