Christmas has arrived at IPC Green!

Dear Parents, 

It has been a wonderful week filled with Christmas excitement! Everyone has loved seeing their classroom transform into a Christmas house. We have even made it look like it is snowing outside. The children have all been really excited to help make decorations for the classroom and have loved seeing them displayed in and around the classroom. 

This week for language arts we read the story, 'The snowman.' We talked about what colour and shape he is and what happens when it starts to get hot outside and how the snowman melts. Everyone made their very own snowman and some even made theirs to look like its melting, because Thailand is just too hot! We also made a Christmas stocking and an Elf of ourselves, which you can see displayed outside the classroom. 

For sensory this week, we decided to show the children what it looks like when it is snowing. This was so much fun for everyone and they loved experiencing the touch and sight of the pretend snow. We ran around and played, singing Christmas songs and trying to catch the snowflakes! We all ended up covered in white snow!

During role play we practiced how to use our kind words with one another and how to share. Everyone was so polite and helpful setting up our Christmas buffet for all to share. We took turns cooking, serving and eating. It was wonderful to see all the children playing together and hearing so much communication among one another. 

The children have all become such good friends and it is wonderful to see their excitement when everyone arrives to school and throughout the day. Have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again next week for our last week of Term 1.

Baking is so much fun!

Dear parents, 

This has been a very busy week in Nursery. We have finished up with our, 'Under the sea' theme this week by reviewing what we have learned and singing some of our favourite under the sea songs. The children are all getting very excited about Christmas as they have started to help make some Christmas decorations to put up on display ready for our new theme! 

Cooking class was a huge success this week as we decided to make and decorate sugar cookies! Everyone loved this activity and got so excited to choose what shape and colour they wanted their cookies to be. They all couldn't wait to eat their cookies as they turned out so cute! Everyone saved their cookie and took them home to eat, however I did hear that they were so good they ate them all up! 

For Nature exploration this week, we had some really good eyes out as the children spotted some giant caterpillars eating up our plants. It was so exciting for them to see and they had such good eyes that we spotted a family of 6. The children helped pick some food from our garden and we gave the caterpillars a new home with food that we picked to help save our plants! 

We also enjoyed a lot of free painting this week as I wanted the children to relax and paint in whichever way the wanted. It was great to see everyone use their imagination and choose which way they wanted to express their creativeness. Some chose to paint with their hands, some chose shapes and some chose to paint with brushes. They all turned out great and colourful! 

Next week we will begin our Christmas theme. For Show and tell could you please bring in something that has to do with Christmas. Please don't forget that Tues 5th December is a holiday and we will be closed. Have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to seeing you next week!

Everyday in Nursery is fun!

This has been a wonderful week in Nursery. The children have been loving our, 'Under the sea' theme. Everyone has been so focused during our activities this week and it has been great hearing all the different questions everyone has been asking throughout the week! 

This week in Nature exploration the children have been really interested in our vegetable garden and watching all the vegetables as they continue to grow. We talked about what is growing in our garden, what colour the vegetables are and the different textures and sizes of the leaves. It has been a great learning tool for them as they continue to watch the growth process and even use the labeled signs to talk about what vegetable is growing! The children also created their own fish by using different shaped leaves. 

In cooking class this week we made banana chocolate chip muffins and everyone absolutely loved making this! They each helped measure, pour and mix in the ingredients. They really enjoyed helping to pour their mixture into the muffin liner. The muffins turned out delicious and they really enjoyed eating them for snack!

This week we really focused on maths and everyone had a great time joining in with our maths game. It was such a big success that we turned it into our sensory tray the next day. The children each took turns searching in the rice for a hidden shape or number and had to match it to the correct spot on the paper! They all loved playing this game and did a fantastic job at talking about what they found! 

In language arts this week we talked about different fish that we see in the ocean such as their colours, shapes and sizes. Everyone got to create their own fish by choosing different shapes and colours. The fish turned out great and they were all so proud of their work! 

Next week for Show and tell could you please have the children bring in something that is big and something that is small. This can be any 2 toys that they have, it just allows the children to make comparisons between big and small. Thank you so much for all your help and I look forward to seeing everyone next week! 

Have a wonderful weekend.

Under the sea fun!

This week we have continued with our, 'Under the sea theme.' The children are loving this theme, especially seeing their artwork being displayed on our big classroom board. It really helps them talk about, colours, shapes, counting and much more! This week everyone got to make their own shark and they loved it. It was great to see them choose how many teeth they wanted their shark to have and then use their sharks to sing along to 'baby shark!'

For sensory this week the children practiced their counting and number skills by playing in the fish market tray. They had to count out how many fish they wanted and how much it would cost. We also had fun learning what seaweed felt like by using scrapes of paper and putting them in the water which made them all gooey! They were not to sure that they liked the texture, but then they had fun moving the sharks and whales through the seaweed. 

For cooking this week everyone got to make their own pizza. They loved making it, but eating it was definitely more fun! They all ended up with more pizza on their face than in their mouths. Everyone took their time to carefully spread on the pizza sauce and then add their cheese, some adding lots and lots of cheese. 

Show and tell was a big hit this week! It was so wonderful to see everyone super excited to share their toy, which was all about going to the beach. Everyone did a great job at talking about what they brought, how to use it, and then letting friends touch and play with it outside. 

Next week we will be continuing with Under the sea. For show and tell could you please bring in something that starts with the letter, 's.' We have been having a lot of fun with letter sounds, both inside the sensory trays and during brain gym centres. I look forward to introducing our letter sound, 's' next week. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Under the sea

This week we started our new theme, 'Under the sea.' The children have been loving our new topic, especially the song, 'slippery fish!' Although we have had a quite week as some children have been out sick, we have still had a busy week of learning.  This week we took our library session upstairs to experience a change of scenery and they all loved it. They enjoyed the new space and it allowed them to really engage in looking at books together. 

For language arts this week we made a group art project, our very colourful rainbow fish which we have named Ms. Molly. She is up on display in our classroom. We also read the story, 'Rainbow fish' which was brought in for show and tell and the children absolutely loved it. It was great to see them interact between the story and our classroom display. 

This week our sensory boxes have been great for our maths and phonics skills. The children  had fun sorting different sized buttons and counting how many in a group as well as colour sorting. We also had fun with making different sounding shakers and singing nursery rhymes. Everyone also had a great time story building in our, beach sensory tray. It was great to them use the people and the sea creatures to role-play at the beach. 

For art this week they made a sea turtle, dolphin and colored in a picture of themselves. You can see them all displayed outside on the board. The children love seeing a picture of themselves and their work on display it allows for great communication throughout the day! 

For cooking class this week we made, oreo dirt cups. Everyone loved smashing up the oreos, it was their favourite part. Not everyone wanted a gummy worm to put on top though, some thought it was a real worm! Everyone did a great job and it was good to see them learn how to layer food.

Next week we will be continuing our, 'Under the sea' theme. For show and tell next week could you please bring in something that you would take to the beach. We are going to role-play going to the beach! 

Thanks and have a wonderful weekend.

Halloween and Loy Kratong fun!

This week has been an exciting, fun filled week full of Halloween and Loy Kratong fun! The children have been loving the Halloween filled activities, from trick or treating around the school to spooky sensory bins and dressing up. Everyone looked beautiful in their Thai dress up today and it was great to see them all dancing and joining in with Thai activities alongside Ms. Skye and P'Om. Everyone even had a chance to learn some Thai dancing. 

This week for our sensory bins we made a Halloween tray full of spiders, eyes, pumpkins and skeletons. The children had fun making up fun sounds and stories about their Halloween friends. We also got our hands messy as we joined in with a science sensory experiment. Everyone did a great job at colouring their pasta noodles and then watching them bubble! It was amazing to watch and they just couldn't get enough of the bubbling! 

It was great to see everyone join in with our water play center this week. We decided to change it up for water play and instead made our own water world in the playground! Everyone had so much fun splashing around in buckets, blowing bubbles, playing in the waterfall and fishing in the sensory trays. It was great fun to see everyone's big smiles! 

We started to introduce our new theme this week, 'Under the sea.' Everyone seems very excited about this theme and we even started to learn a new song, 'Slippery fish'. I am excited to really start this theme next week as I know it will be fun for everyone. For show and Tell next week could you please bring in something that has to do with 'Under the sea'. 

Thanks again to all the parents for helping to dress up your child during this eventful week! It has made for a very fun week for everyone, I hope to see you at our 'Not so scary Halloween party' on Saturday. 

Thanks again and have a lovely weekend, Ms. Casey and Ms. Skye

Having fun with Halloween

This week has been full of fun Halloween crafts and activities! The children have really been enjoying the Halloween themed sensory bins and have gotten quite creative with creating and making monsters with various materials in the play-dough. 

We have been practicing some of our fine motor skills this week by using tongs and tweezers to pick up spiders out of the spider web sensory tray. They all loved making up different songs about where the spiders were such as, on our head, nose and arm. We also made a witches brew consisting of glitter, coloured powder paint, googly eyes, spiders and much more. It was great to see the children talk about what they were putting in their witches brew as they were making it. 

For crafts this week, everyone made their own pumpkin. They each outlined their own pumpkin shape and added on eyes, nose and mouth. They are all displayed outside where the children can show everyone how proud they are of their work! Every time we leave the classroom they point out where their pumpkin is as well as their friends. We also made a wicked witch and our very own monster, the children have been practicing their witch and monster sounds. 

It was great to end the week off with a beautiful sunny day, perfect for swimming. Everyone had a great time swimming and loved going under our waterfall. It was so much fun to splash around and enjoy the beautiful weather. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing half term break. I will see everyone back again on the 30th October, ready for our Halloween dress up day and Loy Kratong!

Transportation that helps us!

Dear Parents,

This was the last week with our theme, 'Thing that go.' The children have loved learning about different modes of transportation, especially around helpful vehicles such as, firetrucks and ambulances. In our classroom we set up a doctors role play centre, as well as a pretend hospital in the construction area. Everyone has really enjoyed role playing and it has been great for their communication skills!

For language arts this week we made an ambulance and read the story, 'Dr. Maisy.' Each child joined in with our doctor role play either pretending to be the doctor or helping to answer the phone and greet the customers as a receptionist. The role play has been great for their communication skills as they were learning to answer and ask simple questions such as, 'are you hurt?

For Maths this week we made a firetruck using different shapes. We talked about each shape, colour and size while gluing them together to create a firetruck. We also played a new game outside to help with number recognition. As a team we role played firefighters and had to help put out the fire numbers around the playground. Everyone loved this game and did a great job at listening to the correct number called while pretending to put out the fire with their own special spray bottle! 

For sensory play this week we set out a nature exploration tray that included soil, leaves, flowers, watering cans and shovels. They each explored how to make their own flower pot. We also enjoyed washing fruit, and filling a bin full of rice with buttons, gems, bells and pom poms to create various sounding bottles. 

For mini movers this week we have been setting up different obstacle courses and they have been practicing how to balance in order to complete the course. This is always a class favourite and they even help each other out by holding their friends hand. We also joined in with some favourite songs and dances including, '5 little monkeys' and the 'Wheels on the bus.'

Next week we will begin our 'Halloween theme!' For show and tell on Friday 20th October can you please bring in something that is the colour orange. I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend and I will see you next week!

Up up and away!

Dear parents, 

This week has been a very rainy, but fun week in Nursery. We have been learning all about air transportation. The children have loved our, 'can you guess this mode of transportation game.' Everyone is very good at making the different transport sounds and using actions to show how that vehicle moves. I am very proud of all the children and their great listening skills this week! 

For language arts we acted out different modes of transportation and the chose the correct flashcard to match the sound. Everyone loved this game, especially when it came to flying like an aeroplane or acting out how a hot air balloon can go up into the sky. They each made their very own hot air balloon by adding different textured materials to collage on, creating colourful balloons. They also made their very own aeroplane where they happily put them up on our classroom display board!

For sensory play this week, we had fun getting our transport vehicles dirty by running them through mud and then helping to wash them off in clean soapy water. We also made a bug sensory tray where the kids loved exploring the various bugs asking questions such as, what kind they are and if they are dangerous. It was a big hit! 

After all the rain this week we finally got to enjoy a beautiful sunny day of swimming! The children had so much fun and loved being able to splash around the pool today. We enjoyed singing the baby shark song as they splashed around! 

The children all did great at show and tell this week and loved showing their soft and fluffy toy to everyone. Next week for show and tell can you please bring in something that makes noise. We are going to be learning about noisy transportation such as, fire engines, police cars and construction trucks. 

Thanks again and have a great weekend!

Row, Row your boat!

Dear parents, 

This week we have been learning all about water transportation. The children have really been enjoying our circle time song and game of, 'row row your boat' and seeing how fast they can make their boat go. 

For our letters and sounds games this week the children learned a new listening song while using instruments. Everyone did a great job at listening for the actions and following along while shaking their shakers. We practiced soft and loud sounds while also following along to the songs rhythm. The children also practiced their name recognition by making their very own name crown. They all did a great job at helping to spell out their name and were so proud to wear their crowns and to take them home. 

During water play we also incorporated our maths lesson while trying to see how many balls we could fit on 1 large leaf. This made all the children laugh and they had a great time seeing how many would stay on before our leaf boat would sink. It was great for their counting skills and colour recognition. 

For sensory play this week we played, 'I spy' by freezing small objects into ice. The children loved spotting it with their eyes and then trying to break the ice to get it out. We also enjoyed a fun ice cream tray using pom poms, buttons and rice. Everyone always loves to make a yummy ice cream sundae! 

Cooking class was a big hit this week! We made carrot veggie puffs and the kids enjoyed eating them so much that we ended up making more! It was truly a delicious healthy snack. 

We have missed a few faces this week and I look forward to seeing everyone back and rested next week! We will continue our 'things that go' topic and we will focus on air transportation. For show and tell next week please bring in something that is soft and fluffy! 

Please take a look at the photos throughout the week. Have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing you all next week. 

Kind regards, 

Ms. Casey and Ms. Skye

Things that go!

Dear parents, 

This week we have started a new theme, 'Things that go.' We have been focusing on land transportation and the children have been loving every minute of our new theme. We started off the week learning about trains, who has been on a train and what sound does the train make. We ended the week off with a fun art project of car racing! This was so much fun for the children and they loved watching the cars race down the tracks while watching the colors mix together. 

For maths we made a shape train using blocks to paint. Everyone loved this activity and was able to talk about what shapes they were using as well as how many. They were so proud of their work and we have now displayed their trains on our transport display board. We also practiced number recognition using a train and large numbers. 

For sensory play this week we washed cars, made a bakery station and a train ride to the zoo! Everyone loved the car wash and made sure all the cars were super clean. They also enjoyed pretending to be bakers and made lots of yummy looking cakes, cupcakes and ice cream pops! 

This week the children also enjoyed their first gardening experience here at IPC Green. We talked about how we have to help get the garden box ready for plants so the children helped pour the soil and spread it across the box and then they each helped to water the soil to get it ready for the new plants! 

Our circle time sessions have been going really well and I'm so proud of all the children for their great listening skills and learning to sing along to all the new songs. It has been wonderful to see everyone trying their hardest to follow instructions with both art and story time. 

Next week we will continue with our transportation theme and we will focus on 'water transport.' Thank you to everyone who brought in show and tell, they all loved sharing their toy and were very proud to talk about what they had brought in. Next week for show and tell can you please bring in something blue! 

Thanks and have a great weekend!

My 5 senses

Dear Parents, 

This week was so much fun as we explored our 5 senses. The children had a great time joining in with different activities and using their senses to explore. It was a great way to end our all about me theme! An absolute favorite activity was painting with our sense of smell. The children had a great time exploring and learning about different scents. We painted with banana, coconut, cinnamon and mint. It was so much fun to watch the children laugh, smile and say 'mmmm' or 'ewww' if they liked it or not! 

We also enjoyed making different sounds using water bottles and various materials. The children had a great time listening to loud and soft sounds. We enjoyed using pom poms, buttons, jewels, rice and bells to explore how many sounds we could make.

For our sense of taste in cooking class we made hummus wraps! Everyone loved this especially spreading the hummus on the tortilla as well as rolling it up to make a burrito! 

For maths this week we enjoyed singing familiar number rhymes, '5 little monkeys' as well as practicing our number recognition and writing skills. The kids had so much fun using chalk to draw around large numbers and simple shapes. 

Next week we will begin our 'Things that go' topic. I am very excited to begin our transport theme as this is always a class favorite. For show and tell next week can your child please bring in anything to do with transport to share with their friends. 

Have a great weekend!  

Kind regards, Ms. Casey and Ms. Skye

All about me

This week has been an amazing week with the children and it is so great to see their smiling faces! I have been so proud of everyone for getting into the school routines and being such great listeners. We have had some great circle time sessions and the children love singing our good morning song to everyone showing off their beautiful 'I am ready for school' smile! 

This week we have talked about what our favorite thing to do at school is and what makes us happy. It was great to see the children all choose different areas such as, puzzles, our sensory trays, swimming, singing and dancing or exploring outside. Everyone got to make their body collage craft and you will see them on display along with a picture of them enjoying their favorite activity at school. They will be so proud to show you! 

For nature studies this week we got the excitement of looking around and walking through muddy puddles. The children love exploring muddy areas with their rain boots! We found some food for our tortoise and helped feed them as well as picking up big leaves for our nature craft. 

We also had our first cooking class and the children did great! Everyone was a great listener and enjoyed helping to mix in the different ingredients as well as smell them. Not everyone wanted to get their hands messy by making banana oat cookie balls but everyone did help! 

Next week we will begin our, 'Senses' theme and cant wait to do some fun crafts and activities while exploring all about sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell! I look forward to seeing everyone next week. Have a great weekend!

First week of School!

I am so happy to welcome everyone to our Nursery class and so happy to see that the children are starting to settle into the class. The children had so much fun swimming and never wanted to leave the swimming pool. It has been great getting to know each child individually and learning what they enjoy most at school. This week was our first full week of school and I can already see so much progress among the children and how they are settling into a new routine which can be difficult at first. Everyone has loved meeting our school tortoise and they are all becoming very helpful in feeding him! 

I am happy to see the children begin to explore new activities around the classroom. Everyone had a great time washing the baby dolls and making pretend ice cream from our sensory tray. We have been talking about how school is a place to make fun art crafts, sing and dance and get messy during our play. I am always encouraging the children that school is a special place where they get to explore things that they like and then when they go home they get to tell mommy and daddy all about their special day! 

Thank you to all the parents who came to our coffee morning it is great getting to meet everyone and I know the children had a great time exploring the classroom with you. Next week we are going to continue getting the children settled into school and learning, 'All about me!' Please share this blog with your child and look at all the pictures together so they can see their happy faces and talk about their special days at school with you. It is a great way to show that school is fun and exciting! Have a fantastic weekend get lots of rest and I will see everyone next week.
