2.4 Healthy Week  Day 2

Together with the children we discussed about why it is important to be healthy, what exercise we can do to stay healthy and we also mentioned what unhealthy things people do and children came up with different points on their own. The children had the opportunity to sort a box full of different food into 2 other boxes. The red one represent unhealthy food and the blue one represents healthy food.

K2.4 Healthy Week  Day 1

We discussed about how we should be healthy. The first rule to be healthy is to keep bacteria/germs away from us by washing our hands regularly. We experimented how easy bacteria/germs transfer from one hand to another. Then we saw how important is to wash our hands with soap and not just with water.

K2.5 Book week celebration

Books should be celebrated always, however, throughout book week we explored ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’/ Ġakki u S-Siġra tal-Fażola.  A week full of activities and challenges. Students were challenged to build a beanstalk using the classroom toys, planted 5 magic beans and re-enacted the story. Using old tablecloths, bedlinen, clothes and pegs the students created a beanstalk along the classroom floor. Reading in the sun, while enjoying the secret garden was also one of our week highlights. Lastly, with great team effort and support we put together a story map.

K2.4 Our carnival floats

For this year, our class, kinder 2.4 came up with the idea to create a carnival float for each child, with used cardboard boxes. Children were given the opportunity to use their minds and their creative skills. Different materials were provided to our students so that they could decorate their float the way they wanted. Then we came up with a rhyme for our float.”Aħna l-kuluri użajna biex dan il-karru ddisinjajna. Kemm iġib ferħ miegħu l-karnival speċjalment għalina t-tfal!”

K2.2 The Three Little Pigs

The story was read to the students and some simple questions were asked afterwards.

We used recycled and different materials to make the activities, like empty milk cartoons, straws, spaghetti, recycled coloured paper, playdough, loose parts such as lollipop sticks and blocks.

To create the three little pigs’ houses we used milk cartoons. The students had to paint the milk cartoon with brown paint and afterwards stick straws, spaghetti and rectangular recycled paper.

For creating the three little pigs stick puppets, I printed the template of the three little pigs and the wolf on rough paper. Then it was given to the students to colour with crayons.

One of the students was re-telling the story while the others were animating the story.

They also built houses with blocks, sticks and straws so that they could re tell the story with their own stick puppets.

In this photo the students are printing with blocks, straw and sticks to create a painting of the 3 little pigs. Students are doing some yoga sessions while listening to the song “Three little pigs”.

K2.5 Peter Pan

The story’s name is Peter Pan; the kids mentioned Captain Hook and Pirates several times, so I decided to read this story in class. The kids were engaged during the storytelling as the big book seemed very appealing to them. During the story, I did some actions to help them understand more as the book was in English, and kids prefer Maltese storybooks. While I was reading to them, I showed them the pictures in the book. The kids were encouraged to step into the story together; this helped them understand the story more. To finish the activity as a whole class, they were given the opportunity to do a role-play. The following are some activities we did related to this book.

We had the opportunity to weigh a sack of potatoes to compare with the weight of a cannon ball. Another activity was balancing on a plank without falling into the sea like Peter Pan did when he was fighting with Captain Hook. One of the activities was a treasure hunt. In the morning, the kids found a letter from Captain Hook asking them to help him find the treasure before Peter Pan.

During homeschooling, we also mentioned the shadows. So, to understand what shadows are, I gave the kids the opportunity to do two activities. During the first one, they had to create shadows with their hands, and in the other activity, they drew the shadow of their favorite toy.

These activities encouraged the children to get more into the story and aroused their interest.

K2.5 Space

The theme was space as before Christmas holidays, when I was observing the children I noticed that they were mentioning rockets and when we used to count numbers in backwards they used to say blast off, so I decided to choose this topic. While I was planning , I was not 100% about it since it’s a little bit difficult for the kids to understand about space. But then When I saw that the children were engaged with this topic and showing interest we carried out lots of investigations about lots of facts such as the moon, galaxy, constellations, planets, comets and everything that relates to the universe. The kids learnt the names of all the planets and some facts about them and they also understood how we have day and night. Greater satisfaction is when I used to receive messages from parents that the children were giving the information they learned at school to their family at home. It was a topic full of fun activities where the children were able to gain lots of information throughout hands-on activities.

K2.1 School Peace and Nonviolence Day

The little students in K2.1 had a discussion, “but Ms. Nadine what is peace?”, so we found a book and discussed … and we made art … blue for the beautiful skies and seas that surround us, white for it is the colour of peace.
