This week the Koalas continued practicing the concepts they learned last week. They reviewed their vowels, the number 7, the color ‘morado’ (purple), and ‘estrella’ (star). During circle time we introduced the children to ‘el invierno’ (winter) and spoke about how in the winter ‘hace frio’ (itis cold). We will continue to review this theme for the next few weeks, basing future concepts, art projects and self-help skills on this topic.
The Koalas learned about how we dress in the winter to keep ourselves warm. This week we focus on ‘manoplas’ (mittens). The children used their mittens to decorate a poster by dipping them into purple paint and making mitten prints.
The lesson on winter continued as the Koalas painted with foam and later created fake snow to make snowmen.
