Thanksgiving Party!

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to our monthly blog of November.

Beside celebrating the coming of fall, gratitude, crunchy leaves, and the golden light, this month we also celebrated it by having The Thanksgiving Party. It was Fun!

On the music time, we sang 'I am a Pizza', 'Orange Pumpkins', Five Fat Turkeys, and 'The Chicken Dance' as our monthly songs

August 2021 – Water Play!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our special August blog!

We’ve had plenty of hot days this summer and more humid, and for Sunrise kids, we had found ways to enjoy it. Of course, Water Play Time!

We usually do the warming up before we have the water play, and we dance Shrimp and Crab song as well!

We were also cleaning and sorting up our toys. Everything is fun if we can do it all together with friends!

July 2021 – Summer and Tanabata!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our July special blog.

When we think about Summer, there are two events that everyone is so excited about! Of course, they’re  Shaved Ice party and the Tanabata festival!

IMG_6003

We were all excited to do the role-play at the shaved Ice party, we did take turns on how to make, serve and enjoy it!

"May I have some more Shaved Ice please!"

“May I have some more Shaved Ice please!”

It was so delicious!!!

And for celebrating the Tanabata festival (also known as the Star Festival), we wrote our wishes in small strips of paper (called Tanzaku), and hang them on our bamboo tree in the hope that they’ll come true.

Planting!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the monthly blog for May!

This month is the best time to plant Marigold, Petunia and Tomatoes for the Caterpillars and Butterflies!

Gardening is amazing fun!  We like to plant and see the process in which the seeds develop into flowers and fruit.

Let’s learn about parts of a plant! (Flower, Leaf, Fruit, Stem and Root)

It’s really fun to do it together as a team.

Tomatoes needs plenty of sun to produce healthy fruit.

They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K.

April 2021 – Welcome to Sunrise!

Hello everyone!

 

Welcome back to our monthly blog for April. This month’s blog is very special as we welcome everyone back and say hello to our new Sunrise Kids! It is also a month of many exciting new firsts for our new and, of course, older Sunrise kids.

IMG_3286IMG_3295IMG_3358

 

 

The new Caterpillars were still nervous to join everyone at first but our Hungries and Butterflies were very warm and helpful to the new kids, and eventually made them feel at home.

IMG_3273

 

IMG_1022IMG_3588IMG_3635IMG_3589

 

 

 

It was also the new kids’ first time to join an Easter party, the Sunrise Kids way. The Hungries and Butterflies were very competitive hiding and looking for eggs in the Daisy and Clover room while the Littles were enjoying their Easter Hunt in the Sunflower room.

IMG_3568 IMG_3563 IMG_3560 IMG_3710 IMG_3718 IMG_3729

 

 

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Sunrise Kids Easter party without the special surprise gift from the Easter Bunny! Everyone was so happy to receive cute Easter stickers.

IMG_3761

 

 

It was also the Shiny Butterflies’ first time to go to their pool and soccer lessons. Some were nervous and scared at first but eventually enjoyed the lessons and had a lot of fun!

IMG_3613 IMG_3622 IMG_3651 IMG_3983  IMG_4075 IMG_4099 IMG_4098 IMG_4129

 

 

Another first time for the new Fluttery Butterflies is turtle cleaning. Everyone was so brave grabbing the turtles and cleaning the tank!

April was a really busy day for everyone, but it was also a lot of fun! We hope you had a fun, busy April too! And we’ll be seeing you next month. Bye!

March 2021 – Graduation!

Hello everyone and welcome to the final blog entry for the 2020 school year!

It’s been a year of fun, sadness and everything in between, so let’s hope that the following year can replicate such fantastic times!

 

As always, our final blog of the year follows the Fluttery Butterflies as they graduate and fly off to elementary school!

Following this, the graduates shared their journey from little caterpillars to B.I.G, Big Butterflies!

I once was two but now I’m three! I’m as big as I can be!

Then the Shiny Butterflies sang their farewell song, “Bye Butterfly.”

IMG_2683

Then the Shiny Butterflies also shared some wonderful words as they gave the graduates their flower gifts.

Finally, a group photo to round off this magical celebration.

And there it is, a fabulous ceremony. We laughed and we cried, but we must remember that graduation is a happy day. A day for both parents and teachers to be proud of the fine young children that the graduates have become.

And with that, we bid you farewell. We’ll see you again next year when we will have more, super fun events!

Take care!

Starting with the Caterpillars, Littles and Hungries got their hands dirty and sticky with paint and glue making their 2021 memory book!

Christmas Day!!

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to Sunrise monthly ‘December’ blog!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas! We are so excited to share with you this month’s events and activities! We have to say, December is one of our favorite months, probably because Christmas is in December and it’s our favorite holiday as well.

As the weather gets colder, everyone gets even more excited waiting for Christmas to come! But while everyone is waiting, we did a lot of crafts to help make the school more festive!

The Caterpillars made some Snowman’s hat and Christmas tree

THANKSGIVING PARTY

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our monthly blog of November!

On November we usually celebrate fall, gratitude, crunchy leaves, golden light, and Thanksgiving. And Yes! This time we had the Thanksgiving party!

Even with all the chaos 2020 has presented us with, there is still so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Here are to another year of giving thanks for all of the wonderful blessings our Sunrise Kids has experienced.

Music Time!

For the music time, we chose “I am a pizza”, “Five fat turkeys”, and “Chicken dance” as our monthly songs

We had Bowling and Pin the feathers games. A new perspective on just how grateful we are for the simplest of things to enjoy and celebrate.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We know this year has been rough, but we see your strength and wish you all the best this Thanksgiving.

October – Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone!

 

Welcome back to the monthly blog of October.

 

When we think of October, there’s only one event everyone is excited about! And of course, it’s Halloween!

 
It is the only month when you can see everywhere lots of jack-o-lanterns, spider webs and even monsters! The most special thing in Halloween is that everyone can wear any costumes and can become anything they want to be. It doesn’t need to be scary, you could even be a superhero!

 

Before the October ended, everyone celebrated Halloween and had a big party altogether. We all played and sang our favorite Halloween songs. And all the Caterpillars, Butterflies and, even the teachers, did a Halloween fashion show and had the chance to walk on the runway and do their scariest or cutest poses!

After the fashion show, we all went to the park and did trick or treating! Everyone was excited to go look for different monsters to get their treats! A lot of parents also joined the party and made all the kids very happy.

I hope you and your family also had a fun and spooky Halloween! See you again next month!
