Water Transportation

Dear parents,

We ended our unit on transportation by focusing on water transportation. The children learned that people and things can be moved from place to place by boats and ships. They created water landscape with paper plates, made sailing boats with mud clay and fabrics and made paper boats and played with water. 

Last week in Pre-K we celebrated "Mother Tongue Week" with various activities. We learned where we live and how some of us comes from different countries. The children heard songs and learned how to say hello from different languages and discovered that their names too can be written differently from other languages. We also made county flags using various materials and we ended our busy week with a fun picnic with some traditional snacks.

It was also time to harvest some green beans from our vegetable garden. They had a chance to discover growth stages of green beans, from seeds to seedlings, to small plants, to full grown plants and finally from flowers to green beans. The children were excited to take them to the school kitchen so Miss Aminata could cook them for us.
