Viikkokirje VK 16 / Week Letter WK 16 / 2019

 

MINIT:

Tällä viikolla Minit ovat olleet pääsiäistouhuissa. Rairuohotkin kasvavat kovaa vauhtia. Aloitimme viikon pääsiäisaskartelulla. Teimme sormiväreillä muovihaarukkaa apuna käyttäen upeita pääsiäistipuja. Tiistaina olikin vuorossa vauhdikas pääsiäismunajahti. Kaikki paikallaolleet Minit löysivät pääsiäispupun tuoman pääsiäismunan ja saivat sen sisältä yllätykseksi tarran. Tiistaina oli myös muskaripäivä. Keskiviikkona Minit tekivät kävelyretken Paloheinään. Aurinko lämmitti ja linnut lauloivat kauniisti. Torstaina tempauduimme vauhdikkaalle temppuradalle. Väistelimme krokotiileja, kävelimme lankkua pitkin ja ryömimme tunnelissa.

MAXIS:

This week has been fun-filled with Easter activities! The Maxis learned about different patterns, how there are stripes and spots on some animals and patterns like stars, hearts or triangles on things like clothes. Then we used our fine motor skills to decorate Easter eggs using coloring pencils and beads. We also listened to a Winnie the Pooh Easter themed audio storybook which the kids were able to follow from the actual book. Winnie the Pooh and his friends were on an Easter egg hunt together and the story also talked about sharing and caring. Afterward we had our own Easter egg hunt! Finding the hidden eggs was a lot of fun for the kids! As we have also been talking about baby animals recently it was fitting to make little baby bunnies and chicks too out of recycled material – they turned out so cute! On Thursday the kids were excited to dress up and enjoy some fun Easter themed games like Pin the Tail on the Bunny, Egg and Spoon race, a fun obstacle course, as well as a crown arts and crafts activity.
