Splendid China Trip Learning Experiences

Goals of the trip: It will raise the awareness of the children of the Chinese Culture through the Park’s many activities and performances. Children will have the opportunities to see the miniature of China’s most popular attractions, which will also enhance children’s understanding of the ongoing school-wide China Week activities.

The Brave Bears Splendid China’s exploration started with a dance show. Also, they have the opportunity to join the dance. It was great to see the Brave Bears showing their dance moves.


Then, they went off to explore the miniature famous attractions/villages of China.

The Brave Bears even went on a scavenger hunt.

In addition, the Brave Bears rode a train to see more of Splendid China.

…and of course, the Brave Bears’ class didn’t leave Splendid China without a group picture. 🙂

Overall, the trip was fun and a great first-hand learning experience where children gain knowledge along-side their friends or together.

Week 16 @PreK1a, Brave Bears – The Joy of Winter

Winter is the time of the year where some part of the world starts snowing, and where cheers are heard, such as concerts. Also, this time of the year for sharing and for the families to get together. Of course, the Brave Bears don’t want to miss these experiences. So….

On Monday, the Brave Bears made a snowman with their MS Buddies. Prior to making the snowman, they had mini-lesson on how to make a snowman (they learned how to make circles from clay) and felt an ice to experience the snow feel.

On Tuesday, some of the Brave Bears helped in making the PreK1 Winter concert banner.

On Wednesday, the Brave Bears together with the other PreK1 classes had their final rehearsal for the Winter concert.

On Thursday, the Brave Bears dressed nicely and proudly performed at Pre1 Winter Concert. And shared a light snack with all the PreK1 families after.

…and on Friday, the Brave Bears visited Santa and got a present from him.

Next week, we will continue to explore what can we do during winter, and have a Pajama and breakfast on Friday.
