It’s getting colder and colder, isn’t it?!
In our UOI lesson, we are learning how to be effective communicators and risk-takers. We apply these learner profiles in our daily lives at school. In one of our Phonics activities, we did a Letter Hunt group activity. Our youngsters have to find all the uppercase and lowercase letter Qq. They have to communicate and help each other to find all the letter Q. Some of them were asking their friends, “Is this correct?” and saying, “I found it!”
This activity aims to help our young ones express their thoughts, get what they need, resolve conflicts, ask for help, and learn from one another. Excellent, Aurora!
We are almost done with our LOI1, where we are learning about various emotional expressions. For this week’s activity, we did a Facial Expression Activity. Our little ones looked in the mirror and showed how they were feeling, then made that expression using a playdough mat.
Just like adults, children need to develop strategies for managing their emotions so that they can build social-emotional skills. When children are more socially and emotionally aware and skilled, they can more effectively navigate relationships, calm down, and problem solve when challenges arise.
We have new games to play with in our workstation. We are enjoying playing the Hands and Feet Balancing Game and Alphabet Clip Cards Activity.
HANDS AND FEET BALANCING GAME
The hands and feet game can train children’s balance, promote hand-eye and foot coordination, and enhance motor skills.
ALPHABET CLIP CARDS ACTIVITY
By squeezing clothespins open and attaching them to the cards, your kids will be developing their fine motor skills, finger muscle strength, and hand-eye coordination.
Have a great weekend everyone!
