Today for our afternoon Dazzling Rubies class, we had a total of 11 kids!
It’s always more exciting with lots of friends, and with songs it’s easier to start a chain reaction. This month’s theme has been Summer and Water, and today for crafts we colored and decorated mermaids!
Hang in there guys, the weather will start to get cooler soon!
This month the Dazzling Rubies students have been learning about summer. In class we have been doing a Total Physical Response activity with a summer song, and learning English words related to summer.
One of the words we have been learning is sunglasses. We have been making a Sunglasses craft and a summer hair craft in class. The students had fun using straws to transfer paint onto a picture of a face and coloring sunglasses in their favorite colors.
Every lesson during literacy time, we sing ABC phonics songs and drill the many sounds into the kids, then we play games to test their understanding. This has been an ongoing thing ever since every single one of them joined our school, and as we played the usual identify-the-sound-with-the-picture game today, we were really amazed at how smoothly they figured things out.
Phonics is without a question the most important and fundamental area in learning the English language, and we are really happy that the kids are catching on while having fun at the same time
We had our annual Summer Course this year too! We teachers had many meetings and carefully planned everything out so that the kids could have a good time, and it was all worth it too!
For day one we all introduced ourselves to each other and made friends, and for the entire week we played English games and made crafts. From this year we also added a bit of study into the curriculum as well. Everybody showed active participation with every activity, thanks so much guys!
On Wednesday we had our picnic field trip at Kodaira central park. First off we played at the park on the swings, slides etc.
Blowing bubbles was especially popular with the younger ones, and it was nice to see the older ones looking after them too!
Lunch outside was lively and fun, then afterwards they all played in the shallow pool. Squirting teachers with water guns, diving into the water, every kid had fun in their own way.
On Friday we had our summer festival at Lucky Kids. The kinders made popsicles while the elementary kids made popcorn. We divided into groups and took turns moving around many booths, from face painting to shooting range.
This year’s summer school ended too soon, we look forward to seeing you all in the next!
