Rainbow Door Weekly Letter July 14, 2017

Dear Parents of Rainbow Door Students,

We hope that you had a wonderful week.

This week at Rainbow Door we learned about Cuba. The children learned that Cuba is an island and that we can travel there by water or in an airplane. We also discussed about the language that it is spoken there which is Spanish. Some of the children mentioned that they speak Spanish at home and mentioned a few words in Spanish. We also learned some information about the flag. We went over the letters that spell Cuba. The children spelled each letter while I wrote it on the board and talked about the shapes that are in the Cuban flag. They recognizeD that it has a red triangle and we counted how many blue and white stripes are in it also.

After learning about it the children traced a red triangle and cut it out. They also cut out 3 blue stripes from blue construction paper. Then they glued everything on a white square paper to make the flag. They did an amazing job and it was a great project to practice fine motor skills (holding a marker to trace, cutting and gluing), following directions, colors, shapes and letter recognition.

This week we had our digital story time where the children chose to watch some dinosaurs stories, Click,Clack Moo Cows That Type, Bugs,Bugs,Bugs, and Good Night Gorilla.

During soccer this week the children had lots of fun running an obstacle race. They had to follow some steps demonstrated by Coach Eric and they did wonderful while they ran, jumped and skipped through the race.

On Friday we cooked. Our children enjoyed a mango shake which is something typical and healthy from Cuba.

Next week we will be travelling to Colombia.

Have a safe weekend!

Mrs. Wanda and Mrs.Luz
