So, we looked at some Panamanian buildings, some international famous buildings, and we took a closer look at our school buildings.
We had some interesting small group activities linked to mathematical operations. We also learned how to built our names, letter by letter.
So as you can see, it was a exciting week!
We wish you all a fun, restful and safe Carnaval Break. See you soon!
Books, Rhymes, and Read ALouds
I started telling them a story about how each person needed to take their backpack to school. Each unifix block represented a backpack.
I began with 5 people, and each child added 1 block to each, Then I said, "After Snack, this little boy wasn't feeling very well and his mom picked him up." As I took the "kid" away, they took the block away too. "How many do we have now?", I asked. They counted again and gave me their asnwers. We continued adding and taking kids away for different reasons. This way we practiced math and listening skills.
Invitation to Draw
Observe and Copy
- Take a picture of how the toys must be arranged in their rooms and paste it on the counter. Ask the children to set every thing exactly as it should be.
- Take a picture of the dinner table set and asked them for help doing it.
This way they can contribute at home and practice too!
Making My Name
To carry on with our exploration, children sat in groups of 3 and built different patterns in the Toys and Games area.
Home Sweet Home
The next day we discussed the different types of houses and buildings we all have lived in. We also began an art project about "Our Homes". The kids made their homes out of recycled boxes, construction paper and extra decorations.
We will continue this project after the break.
