Teacher Nicole's Last Day

Today was Teacher Nicole's last day and we all wanted to show our love and appreciation for her. The children were giving her lots of love and could't wait to share special snacks with her. Before snack we sang Nicole's favorite song, the "Itsy Bitsy Spider". We took lots of pictures for her to keep as memories. The children made a sign and also signed a picture for her as a gift. Although we are very sad to see Teacher Nicole leave, we wish her the best of luck on her new adventure!! Utopia will miss you!

Sowing Seeds!

This afternoon, the children were excited to plant a variety of seeds. Jillian and Aria were eager to help gather the seeds, soil, container and shovels! They worked collaboratively, scooping soil into the container and patiently waited to place the seeds inside. We then took turns spraying the seeds and soil 10 times each.

Jumping Like Frogs

This afternoon, Teacher Denia helped the children set up a new game in the gym using the colored floor spots! Calleen, Jillian, Sloka, Julianna, and Amir had lots fun pretending to be frogs and jumped from lilypad (colored spot) to lilypad. Some children chose to hop like a frog by keeping two feet together, whereas others decided to leap around by alternating feet! This will definitely be an exciting new game for children to continue to play and build on over time!
