Dear Abejitas Parents,
Last week was a wonderful week for our Abejitas, and as we all know the end of the school year is just around the corner. As always, at Sff! we are prepared to give our children a rich environment full of fun and learning. For this reason, during the next two weeks, we will be learning about a new subject: "My Universe and I" Our Abejitas have the opportunity to see images and read books related to the subject. Mom and dad could help at home by taking every moment you can to share with your child about everything that surrounds our planet, for example: the sea, the sun, the moon, the stars, nature, and night. Our children will feel very special and we are sure they enjoy listening to mom and dad.

Song of the week:
Planetas
Buenos días ya salió el sol
Miro hacia el cielo, las nubes de algodón
Buenas noches, la luna salió
Muchas estrellitas luceros de amor.
Estrellas, planetas
Luna y sol
Cuida nuestra tierra y llénala de amor.

Rhyme/Rima:
El sol tiene frío
No quiere salio
Oculto entre las nubes
Se ha puesto a dormir

Fingerplay:
(Hacemos gestos con las manos)

Sal solcito por favor
Mama nube déjalo salir
Que tengo frío y quiero jugar
Con mis amigos en el jardín

Dear Abejitas Parents,
Last week, our Abejitas had a lot of fun with our little projects. Our goal this week is to continue playing with our little scientists while they will be exploring and discovering new scents. For example, our Abejitas will be allowed to smell vanilla, mint, cinnamon, and others. At home, mom and dad could help taking every opportunity to offer new things to your children. For example, while you cook your child can smell the food, or during and after the bath, they can smell the shampoo, body lotion.  They could even smell the favorite scents of their family.
