The EY3 children did lots of learning this week, and had lots of fun too!
For Language Arts, the children developed communication skills as they created journal entries about their weekends, and responded to the book “If I Built a School.” They showed creative thinking in their drawing of the schools they would build, and developed phonemic awareness by identifying rhymes.
For maths, we explored measurement in two different ways. The children thought about how we measure time by making schedules of their daily activities, and began to explore capacity by setting up their own Water Play Centres for ongoing playful learning.
We introduced the idea of communities in our morning meetings, and the children shared with us on SeeSaw about the communities they belong to. We also began to discuss the PYP Learner Profile, and then focused in on the attribute of being “caring.” It was lovely to hear from the children about all the ways they demonstrate this attribute.
Coming Up Next Week
Next week we will talk about relationships, in connection with our current understanding of communities. We will learn about our roles within our communities, and how we are connected to other community members. We will also continue to make connections to the Learner Profiles, with a closer look at being “Principled.”
World Literacy Day is coming up on Wednesday, so we’ll invite the children to take part in a book share to mark the occasion. The children will also enjoy some more math and science exploration through water play.
