During our Belonging unit, we have been exploring the different communities (groups) that we belong to. As a shared PreK 2 activity, all 5 classes came together to have a Morning Assembly (just like the big E.S. kids). This was such a success! Both teachers and children enjoyed it. We decided that throughout the school year, all PreK 2 classes will meet periodically to have a Morning Assembly. Each class will take turns in leading a song, story or dance that showcases their learning. At the end of the assembly all 5 classes will sing a shared Chinese song.
This activity will be kept fun and engaging to build the routine of presenting in front of others. This will help the Snails continue to build their self confidence and build a foundation for public speaking.
