Toddler II May Blog


I can’t believe this is the last blog from the Toddler II classroom for this school year. I need to express my gratitude to my kids, my assistant teacher, the extended care teacher, administrative staff, and the board members for all that they have done. I would also like to thank Steve Stripling who always helps keep our classroom pretty. We all worked hard as a team and sailed smoothly throughout the year. I would also like to thank my parents for giving us their continuous support and their warm and friendly help.

Last month, Kelly (Roman’s mom), visited our classroom with her musician friends. They played three different kinds of string instruments: violin, viola and cello. The children enjoyed the program so much. Ms Kathy, our music teacher, is also bringing different musical instruments from different parts of the world into every music class. The children are so happy to experience these new instruments.

This month, we are wrapping up our observations of the life cycle of a butterfly. In the past few weeks, we watched as the little caterpillars turned to adult butterflies before our eyes. We are going to do an activity with the butterfly life cycle as an art project. We are watching our vegetable garden which we created from scratch grow daily, also.

This time of the year is a very happy, yet difficult and sad time for me because our older children are moving to primary class. We are going to miss them so much, but at the end of the year when I look back I see they have grown so much physically, socially, academically and mentally. That makes me so proud.

I can’t wait to see their happy faces walk through the door every morning. That makes me feel so good. I love reflecting back on all that I have learned from them this year.

I wish everyone a  fun, wonderful summer.
