We are enjoying learning about the continent Asia and its countries, cultures, languages, landmarks, food, sports, and animals. The children had fun making flags of all the countries in Asia (there are a lot of them!), painting the map of the continent and countries, and pin-punching. They have also learned songs in Hindi, Chinese, and Korean. Thank you very much to Ms. Chong, Isabella’s mom, and Ms. Cindy, Andy’s mom, for teaching us these songs. Thank you very much also to Ms. Eden, Lilli’s mom, for coming and talking to us about Mongolia and doing art projects with the children.
We have also been planting seeds in the garden. If the weather permits, we are planning to have more garden activities. Our kids have worked hard while having fun filling the sandbox with sand. The kindergarten students had fun going on a nature walk and learning about the cardinal directions, trees, and flowers. Please plan to come to our Multicultural Festival this weekend. Our children worked hard for preparing our classroom and program for the festival.
Next month, we are going to explore space and the solar system. Also, we will learn about money and time. We will have our Easter egg hunt in April and will send an email later regarding the event. We also welcome Jake, a new student who has joined our classroom this month!
