Learning Comes Alive @PreK1a

“This is fun!”

“This is bringing me back to my childhood.”

“Wah! This is cool!”

These are some of the parents’ comments while they are exploring together or alongside their child in the classroom.  While Super Sharks are very glad sharing their favorite learning activities, books, and songs to their parents. 

They even rock the dance floor together. 🙂

 

…and help in making a collaborative DOT art project.

Problem-solving skills (how to peel the corn)

 

Safety (stay away from the cooking pot)

 

Appreciating the fruit of labor. Yum, yum, yum! 🙂

Early Math: What is a circle?

For the past few days, the Super Sharks have been asking to play the circle song. The song is becoming one of their favorite. They gladly draw circles in the air and walk in a circle. With this interest, the Super Sharks were challenged to share what they know about a circle.

During indoor exploration, different sizes of circles were placed in the writing area with different coloring materials. With no prompts, the Super Sharks started to color and draw on the circles. When they were asked what is a circle, they responded…

The Super Sharks also have shown what is a circle in a big group.

To further (assessment) check how much knowledge they know or have learned about circles, they went for circle shape hunting. The Super Sharks found a lot of circles! They even noticed the bell in the tower. 🙂

Next week, the Super Sharks will apply the knowledge they gained to new learning engagement, illustrating a self-portrait.
