一叶知秋 The Beauty of The Fall of One Leaf
In Chinese aesthetics, the beauty of autumn is very special.
We sit naturally, raising our heads. Summer has gone. Autumn has come.
The fall of one leaf is enough to tell coming of autumn. Time is fleeting.
Different kinds of leaves lined on the ground.
How touched it is. I can only say it’s very MAGNOLIA.
九月生日会 Birthday Party of September
Before the birthday party of September, teachers and children made our own cakes together.
Sometimes we forgot how we enjoyed our success such as the first time we were able to cook a poached egg. No matter it was broken or being cooked too much.
When we saw the children who were so excited to claim the cake they were eating was made by themselves, time went back. We went through our childhood time again. This is the highlight in our teaching career.
We are so lucky that we can experience our life again and again.
This is not only children’s birthday, but also ours. We sing songs, we smile to each other. We celebrate together. Every day here is a new day.
家长老师绘本课 Talented Parents Activity
We were so happy to invite a talented parent to come to play with children.
This mum is good at reading books. She came with a book, sharing her time with children, talking about what happened in this story.
They chose a detail in the story, which was a tree. So they create one by themselves.
The atmosphere was so good! We expect to have more parents coming into school to be a teacher. You will get a lot of fun and happiness.
迷宫 Maze maze maze!!!
Teacher Sylvain made a maze by lEGO, which was very interesting for children.
It’s alos a beginning of a bigger research.
They made a big maze by white paper, sticky notes and all kinds of color pens. They can choose dolls they want and put them into the maze, trying to find a way coming out.
For a creative teacher, everything is useful to achieve the teaching goal. All of the materials around him are alive, waiting for him to change them into a bright new style.
印第安图腾 Indian Totems
Indians children spent two weeks on their totem, a little by a little.
Teachers made a model by cardboard and rolls.
Children painted according to the model.
They chose colors they like. They decorate and paint with their own purpose.
What children have done are more more beautiful than the teachers’ work.
Just like what Picasso said, “I could draw as well as Rafael at 14, and then I used my life to learn to draw like a child.”
