A big thank you to all the parents who made our shared lunch a success. It was a great atmosphere; parents, teachers and children conversing and eating amazing food as a community. By the way, children were asking when the next one will be, which shows that they thoroughly enjoyed your presence, and the great food of course.
Thank you so much to all the parents who have come in and read to the children. The children are very excited about it and please keep coming. It is also okay for a parent to volunteer a specific day every week, 8:10 am seems to be working fine and the stories have been lasting for 5 to 10 minutes. The stories had a lot of visuals/ pictures which helps all the children to follow the story regardless of what language the story is in.
Unit of Inquiry
We watched a video clip on the Jackson Pollock painting and the children used that particular painting technique to cooperatively work on a painting as a group. It was messy and fun for the children, they might tell you about it if you ask them. Children have also been playing guitars and the keyboard as another way of expressing themselves. Some children also worked together to make drawings on a large piece of paper rolled out on the floor.
Children were engaged in activities that promote one-to-one correspondence and matching numerals to quantity. At the water table they used a balancing scale to compare weight and they used mathematical terms such as more, less, heavy and light. They were also engaged in role play, puzzles, painting and construction play.
Have a wonderful weekend!
