Hope everyone had a good holiday season. It was nice to see refreshed faces and renewed energy come alive on everyone’s face after the much-needed break.
December was about spending quality time and we celebrated the same spirit in the class by making hot cocoa together from scratch.
They also had an opportunity to learn about the art of compassion by bringing donations for HOPELINK. They exuberated the essence of giving by decorating a box for collecting the donations.
This month we had our practical life area filled with jingle bells, tying ribbons, gift boxes, Christmas trees, and ornaments. It was also fun to learn names of vegetables in Spanish and make clay gingerbread men for their families in art class. We also learnt about the festivals around the world and hibernating animals. There were stories and songs around why birds migrate and how animals prepare themselves for winter. In January we will be learning about insects, spiders, their body parts, and life cycles.
Wishing all the families a very happy 2018 once again!
