Yesterday we celebrated Julian's Birthday as we Know at Escuelita, the celebration of a child's birth date is an integral part of our emergent curriculum and we feel that partnering with families for this celebration is an important step in building a true community of learners.
Julian's mom came to the morning "CITA" she brought photos of his child throughout his years and she shared some stories of when he was younger. We light a candle and he walked in a circle around it for each year of life. We sang Cumpleaños feliz and open the classroom gift.
The classroom gift is elaborate for our Birthday committee in advanced. We had a special Merienda, Manzanas, Quesadillas, and donuts.
Julian was so happy sharing his special day with friends.
