This month, the Brilliant Crystals class enjoyed learning about the 5 senses with smelling and tasting activities. The activity introduced several new English vocabulary words such as sweet, sour, salty and bitter. They enjoyed describing the taste and smells of different types of food and plants.
We have also been developing our phonic identification and writing skills. The students enjoyed rainbow writing and easel print writing activities.
It’s that time of year when we show our appreciation for our fathers, and very single kid at our school made crafts for Father’s day. We hope the daddies enjoyed them, and we’re very thankful for all the hard work!
This month’s theme for speech is “How to get good grades”
The kids participated in a workshop on how to get good grades, then practiced reciting/ memorizing the basic procedures taught that day. It’s a very important and practical topic, and we hope they’ll make good use of everything we learn this month.
Rainy season is upon us, but luckily, we only had cloudy days last week. Sunny days are scarce, so we go outside when we can!
The other day, we had a color ball sorting activity for their hand and eye coordination. They picked up small pom pom balls of different colors and put them inside the specified paper cup. Lots of fun, and they thought pretty hard too
Since opportunities to play outside will probably grow less and less, we’re hoping to provide lots of more fun games that stimulate their brains too.
This month’s Sapphires’ theme is my body. The students have been learning about the different parts of their body and movement with their body. We have been learning body themed songs, and doing activities such as beading which help develop their fine motor skills. This month we will also be doing several activities that utilize their 5 senses. The students are enjoying learning the English vocabulary about tasting and listening through the senses’ activities.
The Elementary monthly theme this month is Insects and Arachnids. Insects and spiders just happen to be my (Norito’s) worst fear, so I can sympathize with how some of our students shudder a bit, but to my surprise most of them seemed interested. We’ll be making mobile crafts, booklets and learning what all these creatures are called in English.
