Our 31st  week

Happy Easter from the Pteros class. We have had a wonderful time learning about Easter through storybooks, songs and crafts. We have already prepared an Easter basket to fill with Easter eggs on our egg hunt. Our Pteros have brainstormed where the

Easter bunny might leave some eggs for us to find. We have agreed to help each other find the eggs and share them with our friends. Our children collaborated to design an enormous Easter egg and showed excellent team work when worked together to decorate their creation. We practiced respecting each other’s space and valuing each other’s work. We were able to practice giving each other compliments by saying nice things about each other’s art work.

Our letter of the week was Q, and we pursed our lips together to practice the unique sound the Qq makes: quick, quiet, queen! Using a dot to dot math game, the children connected the dots between numbers as they counted 1 to 10. We have made amazing progress in our numeral recognition and when we reached number 10 we realized we had drawn a queen’s crown. Naturally, the crown needed to be covered in colored gem stone stickers for aesthetic value. The Pteros are getting very good at holding our pencil firmly and making straight line marks.

We were really excited to play a shape and color pattern game, as children drew a lucky card and produced color and shape patterns using connectors to reproduce the pattern displayed on the card. When the pattern was completed they were able to ring a bell. Using the bell was a very special treat for our friends, and they delighted in the loud noise it made.

Pteros class continued to practice making Chinese strokes, this week focusing on ‘pie zhe’

This week’s highlight was undoubtable the Easter party where we met the Easter bunny in person. The Pteros showed their competitive streak as they raced around the courtyard garden looking for eggs. The made good on their promise to share their winnings and were helping each other look for eggs and divide them up. We had a great time at the Easter parade where we displayed our Easter bonnets in a fashion show before learning a new Easter dance with the Easter bunny himself. What a busy week! We wish you all a safe and joyful Easter break and look forward to seeing you all back at preschool on April 9th.

 

“小燕子,穿花衣,年年春天来这里……”随着孩子们歌唱的小燕子儿歌,春姑娘悄悄地来到了我们身边。这周每天都有灿烂的阳光和微风的相伴,可惜的是空气污染让孩子们只能透过窗户观察着春天的到来。

春天有个很有趣的节日,那就是“复活节”。这是pteros班级的小朋友第一次在seips过复活节,大家一开始对这个节日并没有什么概念。我们通过中文和英文的小故事向大家简单的讲述了一下复活节会有哪些活动。孩子们从周一刚听完故事就想着赶快过节,每天都能听到孩子们问我们,“什么时候可以去找彩蛋?”周四是复活节活动当天,好多小朋友一早来学校就向我们展示了带来的复活节兔子,还有小朋友直接讲复活节的帽子戴在了头上,可爱极了。轮到我们活动时,大家睁大了眼睛,在学校门口的小花园里寻找着复活节彩蛋的踪影。孩子们提着自己制作的复活节篮子,把找到的彩蛋通通放了进去。有些孩子找得比较多,还会大方地帮助找得少的,甚至还会把自己篮子里的彩蛋拿出来分享给别人。这真的是太有爱了!

这周,我们还玩了一个很好玩的桌面游戏“扣环游戏”。孩子们需要先选出一张卡片,卡片上有不同的排列。然后大家需要根据不同的颜色和形状,按照卡片上的颜色形状和顺序将其扣在一起。完成以后,需要按一下铃来表示自己已经完成。然后老师会和孩子们一起逐一检查是否正确。这周这个游戏是大家最爱的游戏之一。每天都会有很多小朋友自主坐在桌子前按照要求完成卡片上的组合,然后还和同伴相互检查是否正确。

在英文字母学习中,本周学习的字母是字母Q。孩子们需要在纸上按照1-10的顺序用笔将点链接在一起,然后在皇冠上贴上钻石贴纸,最后一顶漂亮的皇冠就出现在纸上了。中文学习中,我们学习了笔划“撇折”。小朋友们在小燕子的尾巴上找到了撇折的影子,然后描画了出来。还有小朋友告诉老师,撇折长得像小剪刀,还像我们左手食指和拇指中间的虎口。看来大家都动起了小脑筋,找到了好多撇折。

复活节结束后,将要迎来地球日的活动,请家长们在假期收集一些可回首材料,例如:干净的塑料瓶,纸盒,鸡蛋盒,报纸等。家长们也可以在假期中与孩子们一起利用回收材料,制作一些有趣的手工作品。在春假结束后可以将作品和回收材料带来学校哦。谢谢大家!Also, we are looking forward to many sunny days in the playground, please bring a sun hat for outdoor play.
