This week in KG-1ECC
This week the children have been doing many activities on the UAE! Rashids mom from Ms Ambers class came and spoke to us about the UAE she talked about the seven Emirates, the Rulers, Money, clothing and the language they speak. In our centers the children used their five senses as they explored items from the UAE, smelt different scents, tasted local foods, touched items and watched a clip on the UAE. They also enjoyed coloring different places in Dubai in their coloring book, building the Burj Khalifa out of clay, building different buildings in the UAE out of blocks and drawing pictures of what they would spend 100aed on.
On Wednesday the children dress in UAE clothing and in colors of the UAE flag. Thanks to our 5 parents (Yashar’s mom, Hannah’s mom, Omair’s mom, Troy’s mom and Richard’s dad) who came and helped out with our UAE centers. They took small groups around different activities. Thank you to all the Emirati familys in Pre-K, KG-1 and KG-2 who brought in UAE foods for us to enjoy. Please see below a short video of what we did this week. There are also lots of photo’s to look at too.
This week the children enjoyed using Rhythm sticks as we learnt a new song. They did a great job listening and following the actions!!!
