Dinosaur rap: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yhQkUowpNNo

Letter of the week: D

1) Names and characteristics
We learned the names of dinosaurs as well as their characteristics.
Ask your child what’s special about each Dinosaur!
They will tell you something like “This Dinosaur has horns.” “This Dinosaur has thick legs.” “This Dinosaur is a meat eater.” etc..

2) Dino Fossils
After reading a book about fossils and learning how fossils are made, we used wood flour dough to make our own dino fossils.

3) Dino pattern (Math)
Yellow, green, yellow, green, what comes next?

4) Dino puzzles
The kids were really into completing this big Dino puzzle pieces.
Everyday after lunch, they worked on it and finally they completed the whole pieces!
It was great to see them working together in unity to achieve the same goal!!

K4 Puppetry week

Two weeks ago K4 embarked on an interesting project.
We had brought in socks to make sock puppets.

First we designed the puppets on paper and also made a 3D model with playdough.
Together with Bram we made the underlying structure based on our design.
Once everyone was finished making their sock, it was time to add the features.
We used Styrofoam balls, melamine foam, felt, faux fur in many colors and more to create our puppets.
We like our puppets so much that we have been playing with them during choice time in the morning.

This week’s theme is feelings.
We are using the puppets to express different feelings.
Since the puppets can’t really change their facial expressions, we are focusing on the use of our (puppets’) voices to reflect feelings.
It is fun and exciting to play with our puppets!

K5 insight of puppetry week

Welcome to an insight into the class life of K5’s Puppetry week!
From shy grins to elated smiles, their faces said it all when they walked into the classroom on Monday morning. Finally from the stunned silence, a singular voice emerged, “Gasp! A puppet show!”
Instantly forgetting their morning duties of signing in their passports, they ran for the stage set for puppetry, grabbed some puppets and began performing! Already they showed an understanding of what it means to be a puppeteer. Place hand inside the puppet. Stay hidden from sight. Raise arms. Use hand to manipulate the puppet’s mouth. Provide a voice. Move when needed.

Following those basic steps instinctually, the children crafted fun scenarios from their own imagination. And that was just the beginning…

Later, the children were asked to create their own sock puppet. But little did they know that designing anything comes from putting pencil to paper first, or in this case, crayon to paper! Yes they had to first envision what their puppet would look like and then proceeded to draw a 2D image in their sketchbooks.

Our second day still didn’t involve the socks! Instead, the children were asked to now envision their 2D drawing into a 3D object using clay! It was an interesting process for the children being introduced to creating rough ideas with different media.

Finally we got onto the creation of making the sock puppets and the children discovered it can’t happen in 40 minutes. Each element of eyes, mouths, hair require time and care. Because of this, the children’s sock puppets are still in production, awaiting our Feelings theme where they can bring out their puppets to perform different emotions and get a sense of character with movement and voice! This also acts as early performance preparation for our Spring concert next year!
