This Week In Kindergarten

Greetings dear parents!

How was your week? Our week was a very enjoyable one, full of delight and fun. We had a wonderful time on last Saturday at the art auction, which is one of our most beloved LE traditions. On behalf of the whole team, we want to sincerely thank each of you who attended for coming and sharing that beautiful night with us.

Large Group

We started our class by singing the "Good morning" song. After that we read a book together as a group and we also engaged in a circle time activity with new songs and more games. These activities have various purposes. They help the children to improve upon cognition, physical and emotional well-being and also improves powers of connection, creativity, memory, language and team work.



Literacy

This week in our literacy sessions, we learned about the primary colors, which are the building block of all other colors. Learning about colors will help the class sort, organize and compare objects. Early identification of colors helps children to make predictions and observations. Overall, identifying and describing colors improves the children's abilities in many ways. Our outcome for this lesson was that by the end, our students would be able to identify the primary colors, which are Red, Yellow and Blue. Kids are more drawn to colors that are bright. Such colors can help in creating a sense of positive energy and playfulness. In this case learning about these colors had them radiating happiness, which we are very glad to see!



Journal

In this week in our journal our prompt was "what do you want to be when you grow up?”. Drawing pictures and making marks in a journal helps the kids learn how to express themselves on a paper. Journaling also can help them get their feelings out. Keeping their own journal during this critical time will help your child feel safe to express their emotions and their thoughts about what's going on their lives at school, at home, with family, with their friends or anything else. So, in this case everyone was doing their journal in a quietly and independently with some lovely classical music playing. The children drew what they want to be when they grow up. It was very interesting seeing their variety of responses!



Science

This week's in science the class tried out a "Primary color mixing experiment". Because the class focused on primary colors in our literacy, we decided to have the children try out a color mixing experiment in science. One interesting thing that the class also learned through these explorations is that these three colors (red, yellow and blue) cannot be created and already exist. However, if they are mixed in a certain way they create secondary colors (purple, green and orange). 

1.      Blue and red mixed together make purple.

2.      Yellow and red mixed together make orange.

3.      Blue and yellow mixed together make green.

It was a beautiful moment getting to see the children participate in this experiment. They enjoyed themselves and were very focused!
