After having spent so much enjoyable time with family and friends, our students came back to school this week. We have started this new month and the new 2018 year with the introduction of winter: vocabulary words used this week included snow, snowman, & snowflake. We also talked about things that are cold and reviewed the seasons changing: winter, spring, summer & fall. Finally, on Friday we talked about winter fun, and all the sports and activities that can be done in the snow!
During Creativity Class they worked on a melted snowman made on a blue canvas, using finger paint and our hands! One by one they helped placing the final details on their project such as the nose, eyes, arms, a scarf ! We also used china paper and water to create the image of a winters night sky and dripped white paint on them to simulate snow!
Physical Education class has been also related to winter and they sang and danced to music that talked about winter!
This week we began incorporating story time yoga! Our tigers love it as it lets them delve further into the book and become a part of the story! Stories read to them this week included “Are you Ready for Winter?” “Ben and the Cold”, “Around the Year”, and Bear Went over the Mountain” and “Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do You Hear?”.
We have begun with the leader once more, and they have been more than excited to resume this wonderful activity for them to bring something special from home and share it with their friends!
Next week we will be talking about winter clothes and winter shoes.
Ms. Maggie and I wish you all a very wonderful 2018 with many blessings for each one of our little ones and their lovely families!
