During the next two weeks the children will be introduced to our Human Anatomy unit. We will start with the discussion about how people may appear different on the outside, but we are all the same on the inside. We had a lesson on the importance of every student being responsible for doing their job in the classroom and compared that to how each organ needs to function properly for a human being to stay healthy. Each child will receive a vest with color coded organs on it followed by a discussion on the role of each organ. We will discuss the following organs and their functions: lungs, heart, liver, stomach, large intestine, small intestine, and kidney’s. The children will be responsible for gluing their organs onto their vest and received a tee shirt lab coat and paper head light to perform surgery. We can’t wait to perform Surgery!
The story we read was “Where the Wild Things Are”. The focus of this lesson was to understand about main characters, setting and the plot of the story. After we discussed that Max was the main character of the story. After we discussed that Max was the main character of the story, we created a paper plate replica of Max as a craft. The children enjoyed our lessons these past two weeks.
We started the following academic specials: Music with Ms. Mellissa, Spanish with Ms. Senorita Estelle, and Storytime with Miss. Gina. During music the children had a great time singing and dancing. In Spanish class the students learned the days of the week and counting 1-10. Lastly, the children enjoyed a wonderful story about a bear visiting a library.
On Friday, October 29th we will celebrate Halloween. The children are invited to wear friendly costumes for the day (no weapons) and families are invited to attend the outside parade (weather permitting).
Thank you for sharing your children with us!
