Busy bee this week

BB Fun and Fitness Week

BB children are always energetic but they are even more so through the activities this week.
Our craft "spiral kite" made us kept running in the park. More we run, more the kite spinned!

We enjoyed bowling and other games like ball tossing and pom pom hokey in the classroom. We waved our Pennants to cheer up our team.
For the several times, we practiced crawling through the tunnel for the sports day coming soon. We can all go through the tunnel very quick!
Hope we can enjoy our first Sports Day as much as we enjoyed this week.

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!

LB puppetry week

Ladybug Puppet Week


Song of choice:
Do the Pinocchio
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV-D_K4drsA

This song is great for children of all ages. For ladybugs, especially, this gives them lots of gross motor skills and directions to follow throughout the entire song. There is not a single moment to rest which keeps them on their toes.

Craft:

The crafts for the ladybug class were intended to help raise awareness of what a puppet can be. The first craft was coloring in Pinocchio shortly after listening to the song. Some students recognized the popular Disney character instantly while others simply enjoyed his long nose!

The second craft introduced finger puppets to the classroom. Most traditional puppets would be too large for our students hands so we opted for finger puppets. With many different animals to choose from, the class loved making their own puppets to eventually play with their friends and at home.

During circle time we re-enacted the stories we read with Zack the Zebra Puppet alongside Christine bringing her friendly puppet Violet along to sing and dance with Ladybugs.
