Week 21 @PreK1a, Brave Bears – What do you know about Chinese New Year?

“I like Chinese New Year!” most of the Brave Bears responded when they were informed that Chinese New Year is coming.

Prior to asking the Brave Bears what they know about Chinese New Year, they looked at the story behind Chinese New Year. In between the story, the Brave Bears were asked questions, such as what do you notice and what do you think.

Then the next day, the Brave Bears were presented with a mouth watery provocation to learn about what are the Chinese New Year colors.

…and here is the Brave Bears’ what we know about Chinese New Year.

Here are the Brave Bears’ learning engagements this week, and for the rest of February.

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.

Upcoming Events:

Dec 15: 11:30 Early Dismissal

Dec 18 – Jan 5: Winter Break (No School)

Jan 8: Classes Resume
