Patterns around us and reocurring patterns in nature was a theme we explored this week. Our friends got to create with shapes and colors and experiment with patterns that we find all around us. Plants, sea shells, food and some insects are just some of the places that we can find patterns. We had fun trying to remember places where we have seen patterns.
Thank you to Meredith Tennant (Rowan’s dad) for being our mystery reader this week. It was really fun ringing in this new season with the lovely Christmas books she shared with the class.
This week in DKZ we have been exploring Pets! What is a pet? “Can you have a bear as a pet?” one of the children asked? We have enjoyed exploring being a veterinarian and working in a pet shop. We painted pictures of pets. We got to meet Mrs. Saaiman’s dog, Faye, who only understands Afrikaans. The children also made pet collages and shared about the pets in their family. The children who do not have pets told their friends the pets they would like to have and one friend said, “I want a snake, but with no poison.”
Hola! This week in Spanish we began to learn words to express our emotions or feelings. We made faces to express Estoy Feliz (I am happy), Estoy triste (I am sad), Estoy cansado (I am tired), Estoy enojado (I am angry), Estoy enfermo (I am sick) and Estoy soprendido (I am surprised). Next week we will learn more ways to express ourselves!
