News From The Bears

The Bears have been keeping us very busy this year – and growing up way too fast. We’ve seen so many achievements, milestones, and goals being met in such a small amount of time, and we’re so proud of all that they have accomplished. Language is growing, skills are developing, and the personalities of each kiddo have definitely started to emerge, and we’re so excited to see what’s next for everybody!
 
In the past few months, the Bears have played in a snowy Winter Theme, explored vehicles in Things That Go, and created special dishes (including real fruit smoothies) in our Food theme. Right now, we’re in the middle of our Pets theme, and the kids are learning names of pets found in a house, animal sounds, and how to be gentle with small creatures. We’re focusing a lot on dramatic play, so inside the classroom, we’ve created a Pet Shop, where the kids have been feeding animals, grooming their fur, and taking the animals on walks around the school! We also have an Animal Hospital so the children can pretend to be veterinarians and take care of our “sick” pets. So far, everybody has been really enjoying all of the stuffed animals, puppets, and sensory activities throughout the day, and we’re looking forward to seeing even more excitement as the theme goes on!
