PreK 3. End of Quarter 2.

Dear parents. 

End of quarter 2 is here.
Time for a modest update. The children are enjoying PreK and we're also very happy that since we came back from Holiday, the weather in Mali is fresh. This makes that the children enjoy playing outside very much.
And we find a natural cool place, with open windows when we enter the classroom. 

Recently we work on 'Matter'.

  • We talk about solid things and we find and hold and see 'solid' things all around us.
  • We experience 'liquid' matter as in water and drinks.
  • We play with air = 'gas' When we play with balloons and when we feel the wind blow softly the children experience 'air'.
  • We searched for rocks and cobblestones.
  • We held ice in our hands and felt it melt into water.
Elmo' song on Water.

Silly song about Matter.

Elmo's musical about shapes.

The kids also love this song about Brushing your teeth very much.

We spend a great time working and playing with shapes and colors.
Some children liked to make a little shape book. 
Others sorted shapes and colors. We tried to find shapes in our surrounding. 

Every Friday is Library time. 
Please keep this in mind and check at home if the books come back to school.
The children are very motivated to bring books home to read with you.

As always the students love to play and learn. Check the pictures below.

Wish you a happy weekend.

There are shapes everywhere you see. Rectangle. Square. Circle.


Hajrah forgot to bring 'Elmo' to school. No problem , we just check on him on You tube. Elmo learns us a lot and we love him.
