CURRICULUM NEWS:

WHAT DID WE LEARN THIS WEEK?

THIS WEEK WE WORKED ON CLASSROOM RULES, BEHAVIOR AND ROUTINES.


We make a tour at the school, in order to know the differents places: cafeteria, office, restroom...


We have played game for names, we have danced, and we have known new spanish song for instance: "buenos días" "a recoger a recoger", "días de la semana", "meses del año"...


It is important that when children paint or write at home, they take the pencil correctly (with index finger and thumb) We have a song to remember that, it is:

"Este es el piquito de mi pajarito. Come, come, come y se va. " Maybe you can sing too!
