Paras Update

Theme: Spring & Growing

This week we had a lovely time continuing with our Spring & Growing theme! The Paras have really enjoyed a lot of the hands-on activities that we have done as we explore spring, and other things that grow!

This week we made play dough as a team using flour, salt and water. This play dough was then used later in the week to create different things related to spring and things that grow – flowers, seeds, trees, etc. We had a lovely time each taking turns to contribute to the play dough making as we each turn a turn to supply our bowl with the ingredients and mix it. We also talked about the many shapes we use to create something like a flower! During the creation of our flowers we also discussed some of the main components – pedals, seeds, stem, leaves, etc.

This week also involved some of our very own planting! The pots that we decorated last week are now being used to store some of our gardening fun! The Paras will be watering their own individual seeds daily and we will watch our plants grow through out the course of the upcoming weeks – a very exciting endeavour!

This week’s pre-writing also involved some fun hands on play as we discovered the letter “P”. For this letter we discussed how to write it, how to say it as well as the words we use the letter “P” to say. These vocabulary words include: pineapple, pumpkin and pig! Feel free to ask your Para about what they have learned this week!

 

春天的脚步悄悄地来了,虽然气温忽上忽下但孩子们都迫不及待想要拥抱春天。在科学活动中我们一起来讨论了如何来种植种子,从介绍需要的工具以及材料开始,Paras们在自己的小花盆里勺上泥土,洒水,用喷壶喷水,放在阳光下,种下希望,希望我们的小种子茁壮成长!

星期二我们一起来制作了彩虹色拉,Paras们一起来看一看、说一说、尝一尝各种蔬菜水果的颜色、形状、种子以及它们不同的味道和口感,我们一起动脑筋用上各种形容词来表达自己的感受,感受语言带给我们的奇妙旅程。在Paras们灵巧的小手中,我们又是切水果,又是给水果去皮,用草莓、橘子、玉米粒、青苹果、蓝莓以及紫甘蓝拼出了美丽的彩虹,自己的劳动成果品尝起来更美味!

体育活动中Paras们一起来较量了一下身体的力量,三个小朋友一组,在弹力圈里各自使出全身的力量往三个不同的方向移动,看谁能先和队友击掌。在游戏中有的孩子半蹲身体来保持平衡,有点孩子挥动双手来使劲,还有的孩子用腰腹力量来拉动弹力圈,个个都咬紧牙证明自己的力量。当然在比赛之后我们相互拥抱在一起,友谊第一,比赛第二!

Chardae老师和Paras们一起来认识了字母“P”,我们一起学小猪(pig)叫,一起来切南瓜(pumpkin),一起做紫色(purple)的橡皮泥,一起在沙子里画字母“P”。

下周我们将进入“阅读周”,欢迎各位家长志愿来讲故事给Paras们听,在周五请让孩子们装扮成故事里的角色一起来开派对!

下周二(5/1)劳动节放假一天。
