Little Lambs

Hello and happy Friday!

For “My Family Tree” theme this week we created a big apple tree for our classroom.  We used our hands and dipped them in light and dark green paint to make the leaves.  We made red apples and pasted on our family pictures.   

We also continued our ABC Handprint project with the letter “Q!”  We mixed black and white to make the color gray.  The teacher painted our hands gray and light blue.  The teacher helped us make a circle for a head and draw a black feather on top.    We glued on two eyes and an orange beak.  Can you guess what we made?  We made quaint quails!  “Q” says “kwa kwa” quarter, queen, quiet, quilt.  We colored a quail in the shape of a capital “Q” too! 

We learned and recognized the color pink this week, too!  We colored a butterfly, a pig, underpants, a donut, a jellyfish, and a flower all the color pink!

Finally, we began working on our very first self-portraits!  Tune in next week to see our completed masterpieces!

Amazing job this week, Little Lambs!

Have a great weekend and see you next weekend!

Busy Bees

Hello and happy Friday!

For this week, the Busy Bees learned a new group of animals, and these are the animals we see in the zoo. We decorated the room with pictures of zoo animals and we pretended that we are in the zoo. We talked about animals they like and don’t like. 

We also did some zoo animal crafts this week. We made an elephant, a snake, a giraffe, and a lion. For the elephant craft, we used paper plates and we added the big ears and the long nose. For the snake craft, we painted the plates and used some dabbers.  Then we used scissors to cut the spiral line to make it into a snake. For the giraffe, we used construction paper and we painted the spots using our fingers. For the lion, we painted the plates and cut the sides to make the lion’s mane.

We also did letter craft this week. Our letter for this week is Tt. T is for train, tomato, and tiger. For the craft, we made a tiger. We also did letter T tracing worksheet after the craft. For the alphabet game, we did the “Find the letter game” in the room.

We continued our number recognition this week by learning number 11. We did number worksheets and we practiced counting. We were also able to put the numbers in order from 1 to 11 without the teachers’ help.

Great job Busy Bees! 

Have a great weekend and see you all next week!

Hello and happy Friday!

This week was the week of our long awaited field trip to Kidzania!  The trip was with mom so it made it even more exciting for the kids.  We used public transportation, the Metro Line—Oedo Line and the Yurakucho Line.  It was a bit crowded because of the busy people trying to get to work but our kids behaved pretty well all things considered.

Kidzania is in Lalaport Shopping Mall in Toyoso which took us (walking time included) an hour or so.  When we got there were already other schools waiting for their turn to get in.  We were escorted to the meeting place and told to meet at a certain time.  Since Kidzania is a pavilion of different occupations, we asked each parent to participate so your child would be able to be the profession of his choice!  So once inside we were on our own.

The trick was to find an occupation that is still open and reserve it and check for the next one!  As I was alone, I was our private cameraman walking around trying to find our students in their cool uniforms of the job they choose.  I found several of our boys as security guards, delivery men and policemen!  I spotted two students making ice cream and the good thing about making food is you get to eat it when you’re done! 

Once you open an account at the bank, you receive a wallet and ATM card so you can withdrawal what money you have deposited in the bank like mommy and daddy does in real life.  When doing a job the students get a salary, when taking a class (dance) you pay tuition, when buying food or toys you also pay.  The children learn that you have to work to earn money which is important in life.

Have a great weekend everyone!  See you on Monday!
