In Pre-K 2 and 3 classes we had another three weeks filled with fun, wonder, fantasy and many imaginary plays. We started on new themes and projects. Our students performed at our school assembly and took a field trip to a nearby animal farm. We had a circus day and a Fairy Tea Party and invited older students to our classes. As usual we did many fun activities in class and during P.E. and sang songs and read stories.

Field trip to the farm
The children had fun visiting Sotouba farm. They saw many cows, some calves and Camels

In Pre-K 2 we moved on to a new theme "Circus". We practiced some circus activities, and watched circus videos to learn more about it. We ended the theme by presenting a "Circus show" inviting other students to our class. They performed a Magician, bicycle show, balancing on woods, walked on wood with a balancing bar and walked through a hula hoop. We continued to cut, color, draw and listen to stories.

In Pre-K 3 we started a new unit on "Fairy Tales". The children learned stories of Elmer the Elephant, Jack & the Beanstalk, Goldilocks & the Three Bears and the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty. They learned these stories through books, by making picture collages and the most fun way, by role playing. At the end of this unit we hosted a "Fairy Tea Party" where the children were able to dress as little princes, princesses and fairies and students of older classes were invited to our castle as guests. They treated them with tiny snacks and performed a small play.
