Week 23 is a week filled with Vietnamese New Year traditions. Our little ones learned the importance of wearing red, fireworks, and dragon dance. These little Mustangs were also busy preparing for the Tet Assembly.
It has been a while since the last post and our little ones were super busy!
Here are the activities we did before the Tet celebration!
In Music, little Mustangs were able to explore BEAT, RHYTHM, and TEMPO (fast and slow). We learned chants, songs, games and poems entitled Engine, Engine, Number Nine; Chop, Chop, Chippity Chop; Obwisana (African Song); Rain Poem;etc.
In Art, we learned our Lines unit. This unit is vital for young learner’s development in Art. It can also help develop their writing skills. Here are some activities we did for this Unit.
In P.E., we did ENDURANCE activities. Young learners were able to understand the value of endurance while playing a game or a sport. We played racing games and practiced Jump Rope. Jump roping develop young learners’ skill in endurance and coordination.
It’s the first week of the year and the semester. Everyone is excited to start the new year right especially the little ones. To make this eek even more special, it’s the INTERNATIONAL WEEK.
In Music, we learned BEAT and RHYTHM. We also learned the Rain Poem and the chant for it. And since it’s the International Week, we learned the songs such as “It’s a Small World After All’, “My Toes, My Knees (Filipino version)”, and “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes (French version)”.
We also played the game Musical Spot (our own version of Musical Chair).
In Art, the students made international themed art projects. Pre-N hand printed Philippine Flag, Nursery dot painted French Flag, and Pre-K and K made paper dolls.
In P.E., we moved on to our next unit: ENDURANCE. We will also be focusing on our jump rope. Each student is determined to move higher into the levels. Most of them are in Level 2. Here are some photos of our obstacle in preparation for jump rope.
This week, we continued on celebrating Reading Month!
We read books and helped hand in hand in creating our face boards.
In Music, we read Pete the Cat books. These books come with catchy songs and the little ones loved it! We read Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes and Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons.
In Art, we created Color Wheel Creatures and we painted our face boards. We chose our favorite Superhero Comic Book Character and we did our best to make them look awesome! Here are some of our photos.
In P.E., we continued to do our Chasing/Fleeing/Dodging Activities. The little ones really loved Cross the Ocean and Froggy Tag. They have certainly improved their fleeing and dodging skills. We will continue to work on this next week.
This week and the rest of the weeks on November, we will be reading books and doing fun art activities.
Also, Friday is the Book Character day so everybody dressed up in their favorite book characters, including the ECC teachers
In Music, we continue to practice our steady beat and rhythm. We also sang songs from books.
In Art, we finished creating our Fall Artworks. Kindergarten continued to learn about Primary and Secondary colors and started to create their color wheel creatures. Also, we brainstormed and planned for our Reading Month Face Boards. We will be working on it the whole week so better watch out for our awesome creations!
