The excitement at LHMS this week has been all about the Spring Graduation Program. The children have been practicing for weeks and were so excited that the time had finally come to perform in front of their family and friends. Their enthusiasm filled the classroom and beyond!
On Monday and Thursday, Ms. Olga worked on ocean words with the children, such as pescado (fish), delphin (dolphin), mar (sea), and more. They also reviewed how to say the parts of their body in Spanish. Click on the link below to check out the children in action!
On Tuesday, Ms. Niza led the children in some much need yoga practice. The theme of the week was “Like a Fish in the Water”. It seemed as if Ms. Niza and Ms. Olga were coordinating their lessons this week! After their Chest Breathing exercise, the children stretched to become Rain Drops and Rivers. They learned the yoga poses for: Fish, Dolphin, Seal, and Big Blue Whale. Then, the children made up their own poses for Octopus and Star Fish. At the end of their practice to relax, they used their imagination to become a colorful Fish swimming calmly in the ocean.
Wednesday was Ms. Kathy’s last tumbling class for the school year. The children were excited to have a tumbling party. They played tumblers across the ocean and Ms. Kathy brought them balloons to play with too. Ms. Kathy will be missed but we’ll see her again in the fall!
Show and tell this week was a word in another language. It was fun to hear the different languages and exciting to see the children teaching each other words in new languages! Next week’s show and tell is “something you found.”
Despite all the hard work we did in the classroom and the extra time we took to practice, we still spent time outside enjoying the sunshine and the playground. The children are so happy to be able to get outside after a long winter in the gym. They love going down the slide and running around together and we took time to go on a walk around the block too. They noticed the sounds of the birds chirping and the different types of plants that are growing.
On Friday afternoon, Satchel came to visit and played with us in the playground after snack. The children and I taught her to go down the playground slide! The children also enjoyed the slide. 🙂
Hope you have a relaxing Memorial Day weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather!
