Our large group
As always, when we do our circle time, each child will have a responsibility to do like adjusting the calendar, telling the day's weather, telling the letter of the week, doing our message board and so on. We also have been enjoying practicing "Abebayehush" which is liked and enjoyed by the kids. Our children really loved singing "Abebayehush" with their friends.
Our small group
For cooperative game, we played an engaging game that our children wished not to end! We explained our kids to make a line and to listen to the instruction. We chose 'Banana or Apple' and 'Red or Yellow' to lead the game. We told our kids to jump to the banana side when we say "Banana" and the same is true for apple and they were trying their best not to lose the game. We observed that all our children enjoyed the game a lot!
During our Literacy Session we did Journal. We showed our kids a model by taking the board as our journal book and make lots of stories. Most of the children were drawing everything about their family and how they spent their weekend.
Abigail "This is my mom and my brother playing together.
Ruut "Here is my mom and me in the airport!"
We shared our beautiful stories to each other!
For Math activity, we continued focusing on counting different materials and match with their quantities. We gave our kids flashcards of numbers to be traced and match with their quantities using pompom. All our children were engaged. They loved counting the pompom and stick them on the flashcards.
For this week, we did our gymnastic session with our new teacher Lucy! Our kids were excited to do the activities with their teacher. They liked stretching their hand to touch the sky!
Our special Art
One of our favorite sessions! For this week we did art with our art teacher Asnake! Our children were excited to see him In their art studio. We gave our children white papers and told them to draw their favorite shapes and glue it with colorful rices.
