We are almost finishing the jungle/zoo animals theme. The Big Bears now know how each one has such different characteristics and habitats even though they all live in the same community. This week, the Big Bears had a lot of practice balancing and coordination in our physical development class.
As a creative activity, each student painted using different colors end techniques. After doing this they had the chance to relate several animals with a specific color or characteristic. For example, a giraffe bends or stretches his long neck and is covered with spots. A zebra has black and white stripes. An elephant weighs tons and has a long trunk with tusks. A lion male has a mane.
During circle time with Mr. Mike we have been role-playing different situations and pretending to be part of the jungle wearing all kinds of masks.
Next week we will introduce water animals and all the wonderful species that live under the sea. Through several activities we will be experiencing life under the ocean.
We had today a super kid. It was Emile’s turn. His parents brought Darth Vader to the celebration and everybody´s jaw dropped! It was awesome!!
We would like to thank you for all your kindness, appreciation, and the lovely gifts we received for teachers day. You make us feel very special.
Big Bears are practicing with great enthusiasm for our upcoming End of the Year Show that will take place next Friday, May 23, 2014.
Have a nice weekend !
