Preschoolers will be developing their research skills in our current Unit of Inquiry, Our School. A couple weeks ago we visited the school’s library to gather information about different schools so we could discuss the differences and similarities compared to our school. Children were very enthusiastic and they really enjoyed looking for books and exploring them with their classmates.
Children will continue to have more opportunities to use their research skills in order to collect information and data for their inquiry as we explore our school community in the next few weeks. We will keep you posted!
Our preschoolers had a great time this last Thursday going to the Library for the second time to enjoy a read-aloud organized by the wonderful children from sixth grade of Primary and their teacher. This time, they listened to a Christmas story and worked on creating a tree like the one in the book. Take a look at these photos!!
Peter Pans enjoyed their first visit to the School’s library this Thursday. They were greeted by children from Primary 6 and their teacher Ms. Carmen, and what better way to be introduced to a new place than by the hand of our oldest students in Primary?? Our preschoolers had a great time choosing books and listening to stories read to them in English by our wonderful sixth graders. It was a fantastic experience and we will continue this «Read to me» project by visiting the library once a month. We are looking forward to meeting them again in December for a Christmas surprise!
Peter Pans and Patufets have been listening to this wonderful story about hard work and helping hands as part of our current Unit of Inquiry, Creating things. In the story, Little red hen asks the rest of the animals in the farm for their help harvesting wheat to make some bread and although at the beginning of the story they are not willing to help, they end up learning how important it is to help out.
Children can now retell the story in their own words and will be taking home the book and CD-ROM that comes with it so they can share it and enjoy it with their families.
Take a look at the beautiful watercolor farms they painted and the amazing farm animals they drew with markers. Well done!! 🙂
Last week’s library story was «The very hungry caterpillar» by Eric Carle. We had been learning letter/sound «C» and caterpillar was on our list. Children enjoyed this well-known book and had fun painting an egg carton to create their own caterpillar. Enjoy the animation of the wonderful story in the following video.
Last week, Peter Pans and Patufets visited the new library for the first time and met Srta. Yolanda (one of our school librarians) as well as Mr. Wiggle, a library worm.
In his book, Mr. Wiggle tells children how to take good care of library books by making sure their hands are clean before they touch them, they don’t write or draw on them and they turn the pages correctly.
Our weekly visits to the Library will help kids enjoy looking at books and read-alouds, so hopefully in a few years they can become awesome readers!
Enguany, com ja és tradició cada 23 d’abril, celebrarem la Diada de Sant Jordi. Us oferim una proposta de llibres que us ajudaran per mantenir en els vostres fills i filles la motivació que manifesten dia a dia per llegir i escriure, convertint-los, en autèntics lectors i lectores. També us facilitem un llistat de llibres que us ajudaran a treballar valors com: l’amistat, l’autoestima, cooperació, tolerància i respecte, generositat,…
L’ educació en valors els permet als nostres fills a aprendre i donar valor a algunes conductes i comportaments, ajudant-los a conviure d’una manera pacífica, sentir-se millor amb ells mateixos i els facilita l’adaptació a qualsevol entorn familiar o escolar.
Desitgem que us serveixi d’orientació en la tria dels vostres llibres per aquesta Diada tan especial.
Fa uns dies, el professor Roger, assegut a la cadira del «Cuentacuentos» de la biblioteca, ens va explicar als nens de P3 el conte d’en Teo i els esports. En Teo i la seva familia, al llarg del cap de setmana practiquen diferents esports (bàsquet, tenis, futbol,…) i també fan d’espectadors d’altres.
Ens ha agradat molt, i entre tots hem reflexionat sobre l’importància del treball en equip, el respectar les normes, i sobretot, als companys.
Moltes gràcies senyor Roger pel teu conte, t’esperem aviat per escoltar-ne un altre.
Thursday morning we went to the library to listen a tale about Christmas (La cuca de llum descobreix el Nadal). We had a great time listening to Anna Llovera on the «Sillón del cuentacuentos» telling us the story and, then, playing a readind comprehension game with her.
Last week, Peter Pans and Patufets went to visit the school library for the first time. They met Srta. Yolanda, our wonderful school librarian, who showed them around the different spaces before settling down to read a story.
This was the book chosen, a very interactive story about a yellow dot. There’s no need to say how much fun the kids had following instructions given in the book to make the yellow dot move and change color and size, it was magic!!
Peter Pans will be visiting the library every Tuesday and Patufets will do it on Fridays. These weekly visits will help our students learn new vocabulary, develop their listening skills , learn to take good care of books and surely grow up to be wonderful readers.
Here’s a short preview of the book we read, enjoy!
