I am happy to keep you updated, I do apologize that it has been a while since you last read the PreK3-Blog. But we are doing great.
We are playing and learning a lot and we're growing to be kind and smart and wise and creative and beautiful and help full kids.
Since a few weeks we are happy to have Mbalia Stone in PreK3, she is Miss Soumah's daughter. Mbalia is enjoying playing and working with us. Ousmane Ba was gone for a couple of weeks to be with his mama Ms Laliyah. Now he is back and very proud fo his baby sister.
Our current theme is Transportation, a way to go places.
Please share these nice music videos with your children and have fun.
We can walk to get from A to B:
or go by bike.
Let's take a ride in an automobile, to go from A to B.
'We often take the boat on the river Niger and escape from the crocodiles and the hippo's.'
Row Row Row your Boat.
We prentend to be a little airplane.
This week we work on Christmas, and we make beautiful Christmas art.
Be our guest at the PreK3 assembly at Friday December 15th at 7:30 in the MPR.
For now: Enjoy a selection of pictures.
Ismael Sangare joined PreK3 for a short time, he went back to England. He had a good friend in Ousmane.
We make up small puppet-shows. The children are good at telling stories and they learn listening to stories told by peers and puppet characters.
Working with Play dough is a favorite activity. Working with this material is a good way to train the muscles in the hands and fingers. Gros and fine motor development. Play dough offers also a play full opportunity to develop creativity.
We love this new toy very much, a 'roller- coaster' playfully experiencing and using gravity to roll the wheel.
Finger painting is so much fun. We worked on the book: 'Elmer the elephant'. We painted lots of gray sheets in order to cut a lot of gray elephants.
Elmer finds himself being different from the other Elephants, he wants to be like them; gray. Once being grey, it doesn't feel good. He is not happy at all nobody sees him anymore. In the end Elmer is very content about being who he is: a beautiful colored Elephant, having lots of friend who love him because he is friendly and caring and he is a joy to the other Elephants. The students re-told the story with these Velcro animations.
Christmas tree art, practicing cutting and pasting and sorting out small triangles to bigger triangles.
Thanks a lot for we always have so much fun together with your children.
We see each other on Monday.
But we already wish you a fine Holiday-Christmas-Winter break and hope seeing you back safe and sound on Monday Januari 8 2018.
Kind regards, Ms Attie, Ms Maimouna, Mr Joel.
