Because research has shown that when children are taught in a multi-sensory way which engages all of their senses simultaneously it stimulates the child’s entire brain making learning easier and improving memory retention. Music and Movement are a powerful teaching tool that makes learning easier and improves memory retention. It awakens the children’s minds, makes learning fun, and engages both the mind and body in active learning.  This week we are learning two new educational songs with matching movements. In the hexagon shape song the children are learning how to read the word for hexagon, identify the shape, and count it’s sides. Here are the lyrics if you would like to join in too.  The children were busy exploring the shape of a hexagon in different ways through out the week. They traced the outline of the triangles and colored them in.  We built on their discovery by giving the children 6 different colored triangles to see if they could build a hexagon shape out of them. We  gave the children a blank sheet of paper and asked them to build a dinosaur out of hexagons, a rectangle, and a triangle.
The knowledge, confidence and good social skills they have gained here has led many of them to not only succeed in School but also in Dance, Sports, Art, Gymnastics, Drama, and the Girl and Boy Scouts.
We are so proud of all you have learned and of how confident, and responsible you too have become.
Kindergarten better get ready for you because you are more than ready for Kindergarten.Choo Choo, we have come to the end of our Alphabet Train and the children know so much more about all of the letters from A-Z. The children are learning to identify, spell, and write the color word for yellow all in an interactive song to help memory retention.  We hope you all have a Happy Father’s Day.

Since our Fiesta Day in May the children have been practicing counting in English and in Spanish.

Victoria brought in her special sea shells from Florida to show her friends and we used the opportunity to show the children where the state is on the map.

The octopus uses the suckers to catch and taste it’s food and even wrapped it’s tentacles around the marine biologist’s arm.  The children are so interested that we will continue learning more about the octopus and the rest of the cephalopod family next week. This week the children have been engaging in activities that help them improve their large motor skills, the big movements that involve the muscles of the arms, legs, torso, and feet.
We played soccer this week and the children watched a few minutes of the world cup to see how the game is played. Because, it offers tribute to the “original” mother and her instinctual knowing of the spiritual paths that her children (all children) must take to find their way out of harm's way. The children are excited to watch her eat and grow and we will be incorporating her into our Science Program.
