关于花和草的游戏Games about Flowers and Grass
Time and seasons are our best reference books.
The last week of April is finally here, we are now seeing the temperature rising and we can dust off our summer clothes, though this means our topic of spring is coming to an end.
Orca class have been celebrating and experiencing Shanghai spring.
They have been busy making their own gardens. Playing with the soil, mixing old and new and adding lots of water, getting it ready to add some grass seeds. They planted in both small yoghurt pots and a large Styrofoam box. Don’t throw your rubbish away. Think about how it can be recycled or reused. In kindergarten we can always find a use for things.
It has been the children’s job to take care of these seeds, giving them sunlight and water. When they begin to grow you can see the happiness and feel their sense of achievement on the children’s faces.
What is a flower? For us it was much better to experience and experiment with flowers and gardens. We used all our senses to discover, learn and play. Afterwards the orca class painted their own representation of a flower garden, using our gross motor, creative and social skills we painted on a large canvas on the floor. We were all very pleased with the result.
