Thank you once again for coming to the student led conferences last Monday!  We hope you enjoyed seeing our learning space and what the children have enjoyed learning this year!

We continued our UOI about exploration through play by growing our gross motor skills!  Our week was filled with lots of yoga, workout routines, running, all through play.

We also continued to develop our literacy skills by looking at common signs that we will see in our community at school and also in Bangkok.  We had fun building a big city and driving our cars to different locations!

We greatly appreciate your patience as we have dealt with the flooding issues on the classrooms.  We have all been working hard as a KIS community to make things as easy as possible!  While we have enjoyed our new room, we are not sure how long we will stay.  But EY1 is always fun and happy to play wherever we are!

This week has been filled with many exciting discoveries about play!  Play is essential to EY and we have been talking about the many different types of play and how we play.  a BIG thank you to all who have brought in toys from home.  We have been doing a great job with sharing our toys and playing our games!

Week of April 29th – May 3rd

Dear Parents,

We have started our new Unit of Inquiry, “Play,” and we ask that your child brings in a toy or game as an artifact to stay at school.  This week we will be discussing what play means to the children and the many different types of play.

Last week we introduced a salon and many children enjoyed getting their hair, nails, and makeup done!

8C54E87C-A34D-461B-9F41-47C02D48975F 693E1C57-8F65-47DD-B6D2-67D0B16457F4BDA2D8BF-5528-4C44-93E2-2FF6221C9B79778D3F09-9032-4E20-B8D8-9A28CF64806D

We have also been very interested in construction play.  We needed to borrow some blocks from EY2 to make our tower as high as possible!

88A9A0D2-E8C3-4977-B077-10ABB366C59A

The children have been using their imaginations, we’ve had some busy firefighters putting out fires throughout the classroom during dramatic play!

We enjoyed building a marble run with the new PVC pipe.  We also got very creative and built different things with the pipes and pieces.  We used what we learnt about movement when we worked together to create.
