VIIKKOKIRJE- WEEKLY LETTER 8/2022

MINIS

Minien viikko käynnistyi kirkkaalla auringonpaisteella. Ulkoilimme aamupäivällä normaalia pidempään lumileikkien parissa. Tiistaina ei ollutkaan muskaria, joten päätimme pitää oman musiikkituokion. Minit pääsivät vapaasti tanssimaan musiikin tahtiin liikkuen ja soittaen eri soittimia vuorotellen sekä improvisoiden. Erilaiset helistimet ja lyömäsoittimet olivat erityisessä suosiossa. Viime yönä olikin hurja myrsky, jonka ansiosta saimme seuraavalle päivälle lisää lumitöitä. Iltapäivällä jatkoimme lumileikkien parissa. Supersuosittu temppurata teki paluun tällä viikolla. Tasapainon hallinta on ollut monelle minille pieni haaste, joten pääsimme tekemään tasapainoon liittyen erilaisia harjoitteita. Midit olivat leiponeet vielä maukkaita muffinsseja. Maistelimme niitä lounaan jälkeen. Olipa herkullisia! Kädentaitopäivänä muovailimme vapaasti muovailuvahalla. Väri valintoja olikin paljon. Oli pinkkiä, vihreää, oranssia, sinistä, keltaista ja punaista muovailuvahaa. Perjantaina pidimme rentouttavan Spa-päivän ennen viikonlopunviettoa. Tarjolla oli käsi- ja jalkahoitoa, kynsien lakkausta kynsitarrojen kera, hiustenlaittoa sekä selkä- ja kasvohierontaa, jossa kurkut olivat silmillä rentoutuksen ajan. Lopuksi kurkut sai syödä, mikä olikin minien koko Spa-päivän lempi osuus.

MIDIS

The first day of the week started with telling a story  – but unusual way! The story was told by placing the story cards in right order and then children had to switch the cards and change the story completely. For example: “ A cat jumped over the socks ” , we changed it to “Socks jumped over the cat”. The laugh after the change was hilarious 😊 Kids got so inspired that they kept telling the stories even in the dinner table. Next day children had a chance to bring their favourite toy to the Daycare. We learned toys vocabulary in English and played together all day along, also we learned sharing.
Wednesday was a sweet day because we baked raspberry muffins. Midis were the cheffs! Kids participated in preparing and learned to wait for their turn and be patient. The muffins came out delicious!
In music day we learned to listen and to move to the beat, by stamping feet or clapping hands etc. We played with musical instruments and tried to catch the rhythm. Activity ended with singing.
The week ended with the Spa activity. Children got to enjoy the relaxing massage with the calming music. They had cucumbers on their eyes and foot pads over the legs. Some of them had haircare and some of them had manicure. It was a perfect start for the weekend!

VISKARIT JA MESTARI-ANKAT

Viskarit and Eskarit started the week by doing some outdoor sports. The kids practiced their gross motor skills by playing different winter sports. They played curling and developed their balance skills by doing ice skating and skiing. After that, they used their imagination to create a snowman by using different elements that they found at the surroundings: the snow itself, sticks, some stones, using their gloves or the boot sole mark. On the next day, the kids had free outdoor playing with the snow, sliding down the small hills and much more. In the afternoon, the whole unit enjoyed a small disco. On Wednesday and Thursday, Viskarit and Eskarit made the space project. During this two days, the kids built an amazing rocket full of different buttons and gadgets with a great panel control. Besides, they also made different extra accessories: a space helmet by using foil paper and their personal bag rockets by their plastic bottles. The kids are so excited with this new play area. On the last day of the week, the whole unit had a relaxing time by having a spa day. There were different spaces where the kids spent time one by one: nail polish, hand massage, back massage, hairdresser, relaxing time with cucumber on the eyes, and much more.
