Time really flies by quickly and we have now approached the last week of term 2. It was nice meeting all of you last week for Parent Teacher Conference. We seemed to all agree that the children have really grown up this past term.
Last week we did activities through the story “Little Red Riding Hood.” In one of our discussions we talked about strangers and how we should be careful in not talking to strangers. I pretended to be a stranger offering sweets to the children and most of them said “no.” However, greeting people is also a sign of having good manners, so in class we came up with a solution that we would greet people whom we don’t know only when mummy and daddy are with us!
“The big bad wolf” seemed to be our favourite character, and we were all saying “big bad wolf” and doing scary faces. In the art centre, after we painted with blue and green water colours to be the forest scene, we tore strips of brown paper to be the forest. We used the big and small red triangles to make “Little Red Riding Hood”, and had to try to figure out which triangle should be the body, and which triangle should be the head. We also made a basket of food to take to grandma. We helped to think of food grandma would like to eat. In the math centre we played a Little Red Riding Hood shadow matching game. Some of us did a very good job matching the pictures to their shadows. We also counted wolves in the forest. In Cooking we made chocolate pudding pie for grandma. (I’m not sure whether it reached grandma or not!)
This week for our last week of term 2, we will be exploring the story “The Gingerbread Man and reading other famous stories. It will also be Ms. Tum’s last week as she will be taking maternity leave for term 3. I wish you all a Happy Songkran Holiday. I hope you a great time together during the break. See you in Term 3.
