In the UOI lesson this week we have moved on from LOI 1 to LOI2 discussing the different ways we can tell a story. First off the bat was the introduction of the children’s favorite books brought from home. They talked about the book they picked and why they liked it. It was inspirational to hear everyone’s perspectives of what they value the most. We have also concluded what we have been learning in the past month on the elements of a story by watching a short film about snails and whales. They children really loved it and I hope they have shared the story with you at home.
As we come to the end of the autumn season, the children made autumn wreaths this week in celebration of this magnificent season. They were all excited to stuff and glue their wreaths with the nature items we have been collecting in the past few months. With a little help from the teachers, they made marvelous wreaths that are beyond our expectations! We cannot wait to decorate our hallways with their finishing projects!
With the unpredictable weather this month, the children enjoyed the fresh air when it was sunny outside. We had our regular walk to the parks and they seemed to grow a bit stronger and taller for the climbing structures. When it rained, we played indoor games that promoted social skills as well as challenging their large motor skills. Rain or shine, we never stop having fun!
