Another Fun Week!

Curious Kids! Learning about the world in Preschool

Panama is a multicultural society. Its diversity is rapidly expanding with families from around the world settling into our small but lovely country. The children need to be culturally sensitive and learn that we all come from different countries but we all in peace and harmony together.

Being culturally aware is more than being nice and friendly to families of different ethnic backgrounds, it’s about being willing to learn about and understand to the best of our ability’s another’s belief system, world views and life values.

PLAYDOUGH MONSTERS!

We made these aliens/insects/creatures from colorful play dough, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes. We had a lot of FUN and admired our sculptures long after they were made! By adding the pipe cleaners and googly ideas, it added a whole new dimension to our play dough! I know we will be doing this again!

Be sure to check out 34 Ways to Play With Play Dough from Hands On: As We Grow for some more wonderful ideas to bring excitement to your play dough activities at home!

FABRIC BALLS!

Fabric balls are made from scraps of left over fabric. We stuffed the ball firmly using small pieces of fabric that are too small to be used for anything else. We had so much fun (as you can see!!!) Ms. Ginni said that a soft, fluffy ball is good for playing dodge ballbecause it doesn’t hurt.

PK 3.1 BOWLING ALLEY

Bowling is a wonderful sport to develop gross motor skills as well as eye/hand coordination. We enjoyed bowling at school. Ms. Ginni showed us how to roll a ball and knock over the bottles.

Painting Balls!

We used our creativity to produce these colorful paintings. This was the perfect activity to finish our Ball Study Unit.


Writing My Frist Word: My Name!

Children begin their journey of reading and writing as they learn to read and write their first word. For most children, that first word is her name. We used large sheets of paper and Ms. Ginni showed us the strokes to make different letters.

Put your mind and little fingers into motion!

Geometry concepts take shape…with this game!

As children created everything from far-out constructions to giant geometric shapes, they boosted eye/hand coordination, strengthened fine motor control and practiced problem solving. They used sticks & balls to form 2-D & 3-D shapes…

TANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL UN DAY CELEBRATION!

Thank you so much for all your support and enthusiasm! The children were all really happy and excited!
