Pteros的更新

Our33rd week

Welcome back to school after a relaxing Easter and Qing Ming holiday break! We have jumped straight into our next theme: Spring. We are learning to share our observations of plants, animals, sounds, smells and colors that Spring has brought into our environment. We experienced planting our own seeds in the classroom, which we will water every day as they sprout and grow.

Sharing our observing of Spring weather, the children told us Spring is “hot”, “sometimes sunny, sometimes cloudy” and has “rainy days”. We discussed the wind and the rain that we can see coming from the clouds before creating our own cloud artwork. We made rain falling down from clouds and blew blue wind across the clouds through a straw.

Pteros class have enjoyed sharing their experiences and thoughts on Spring animals, insects and weather. We made a soft furry rabbit while learning about letter R phonics, and the children practiced manipulating their fine motor skills by drawing on straight lined whiskers. Can they remember some words that make the ‘rrr’ sound? Learning to control our hand movements was further explored as we traced our own handprint to create a Spring tree trunk.

Our Pteros have been busy planning our school’s Earth Day Activity; Recycling Artworks Day! We have been painting color coded boxes for the school’s collection of plastic, paper, tin and box donations. The boxes are placed at the entrance of the school; feel free to contribute your homes recycling to our activity. Our Pteros have enjoyed the responsibility of collaborating on a school wide project and have contributed many interesting ideas.

 

假期总是过得这么快,一眨眼,我们的春假就结束了。假期回来的第一天有些小朋友还没有回来,小朋友们就一直询问我们,没有来的小朋友去了哪里。看来孩子们在放假的时候心里也总想着大家呢!

春天的感觉已经逐渐越来越明显了,地上的小草冒出了小脑袋,树上的树叶也长出了新芽。春天的樱花树上开满了浪漫的粉色小花,小朋友也制作了漂亮的樱花树。首先大家先用水彩笔在棕色的纸上把自己的小手描画出来,然后再用剪刀将自己的小手印剪下。大家画的时候很仔细。小手指张得开开的,还不忘将自己的手臂也画出来,画出来的手印用来做樱花树的树干。接着再将手印贴在纸上,最后用棉花棒蘸着粉色和白色的颜料点缀出漂亮的花朵。还有小朋友告诉我,他们的小花长满了,都掉落到地上了呢。

春天是个多雨的季节,小雨聚集在云朵中,欢快地掉落在地上,滋润着大地。小朋友在小云朵上贴上了雨滴,然后再将蓝色的颜料滴在云朵上,接着需要用吸管使劲地吹颜料,将颜料吹散在云朵上。这样,我们可爱的小云朵就完成了。小朋友们拿起吸管使劲地对着颜料吹,有些小朋友一吹就将颜料吹开了,但是有些小朋友怎么吹都没有反应,但是他们也没有放弃,原来是因为自己的小嘴巴离吸管太远才使不上力气。经过自己的努力和尝试,大家都做的很好哦!

这周的英文小组学习,学习的是字母R,R是小白兔的英文首字母,小白兔是小朋友们最熟悉最喜爱的动物之一。贴上长长地耳朵后为字母R再画上细细的胡子,小白兔R变得特别生动。在中文小组学习中,我们学习的笔画是“横撇”。大家现在对笔画学习也越来越有热情,不用老师的指导和提醒,都能很快地从图片里找到横撇的踪影。

教室里的科学角,大家一起种了小麦,我们把小麦放在奶蛋托内,放上湿润地棉花和安全土。我们每天都会安排一个小朋友负责为我们的小麦浇水,马上就周末了,我们期待下周一见到它们会给我们小惊喜哦。
