Last month our study was “Balls and Bubbles”. This
was such a fun theme to work with! At Circle Time
we introduced a few new songs, Circles Like a Ball
and Icky Sticky Bubble Gum. They were all a hit and
everyone was excited to join in every morning. We
also transformed our classroom into one big ball pit
and had multiple games of hide the circles in the
classroom. We also had our usual dance parties with
a twist this month when we added bubbles to our
Addison is a natural when it comes to playing with
balls outside! She loves to play kickball with her
friends and teachers.
Bodi really enjoyed the Icky Sticky Bubblegum song!
He clapped throughout the song and thought it was so
funny to chew imaginary bubblegum!
Cannon’s favorite song was Circles like a Ball. He
did such a great job drawing circles in the air while
singing and then finding all of the circles in the
Millie was our professional circle finder when we
played our hide the circle game. She was so quick to
find even the toughest ones!
Olive makes such beautiful artwork! She loves
painting and made some very colorful circle pictures
for our wall!
Tate loved our ball pit collection party! He filled up
his basket to the top and had the best time dumping
them out so he can start again!
Taylor thought our bubble dance party was the best!
She danced while popping bubbles.
Wesley loved making marble art! He chose his
favorite colors and loved being able to control how
the balls moved.
For the month of April our study will be Containers
and Boxes. Our focus words will be “Open” and
“Close” and the Sprouts will be exploring and
learning from the questions :
● How do we open/close boxes/containers?
● What are the shapes of our boxes/containers?
● What do we use boxes/containers for?
This study will promote learning and development in
the areas of:
● Fine motor skills: opening and closing
● Mathematical skills: counting and stacking
● Cognitive skills : problem solving
What can you do at home?
Look for similar materials found around your house.
Many household items that use boxes and containers
can be used as teaching examples. For instance items
used for food storage and cooking can spark
informative conversations. Discussions on what is
stored in certain containers can answer all those
“Why” questions toddlers love to ask. Invite your
child to explore these items and to talk about them
● Conferences are April 14th!
● Watch your email for a link to schedule your
conferences about your child’s development!
● We know mornings are busy and things can
be forgotten sometimes. Please feel free to
bring in more than one pack of
diapers/ wipes. We have plenty of storage
