PRIMARY 1 – MS. ELDA’S CLASS
Back to School
Summer Recap: Summer arrived with lots of learning adventures that included fun activities, weekly themed days, indoors field trips and lots of water play! The children had the opportunity to learn from them all. During the first weeks of July we reviewed the jobs that we have previously learned through the school year. The last two weeks of July we covered classroom rules as well as two new jobs from our Practical Life Unit.
The children had lot of fun during our weekly themes. Every child had the opportunity to express their artistic ability by making special art designs, along with creating learning adventures in every unit of our classroom.
Our special days were fun and educational for the children. We started off with our school carnival that was a blast! Then as the weeks passed, we had a lot of learning with presentations/show such as Professor Egghead, Alhambra Fire Department, Bubblemania, Ranger Jack and Stoil Magic show.
Our literature unit covered a very special book called; “Only One You,“ by Linda Kranz. The children learned about the importance of their own uniqueness. We concluded our summer with creativity and literature. They created a beautiful piece of art that will encourage students for years to come to be true to themselves. The children painted rocks inspired by the book, to create a colorful stone lined path, outside the school next to our garden.
We also enjoyed water play and bubble days. The water slide days were the favorite of all! The children had a blast every time. Thank you to all the parents that volunteered their time to give us an extra hand. It was really appreciated.
I would like to thank all the parents of children who are moving up. Thank you for the support and trust you have given to me this passed school year. It was a pleasure to be your child’s teachers. Thank you for supporting your child’s education. Best of luck in their new adventure!
