Christmas Carols!

With the approach of Christmas and the change in temperatures, winter has arrived!  It has arrived in the Yellow and Blue classes as well.

We are talking about the winter season, the rain and clouds and the clothes we wear in winter.  We admire the snowy, moutainous view from our windows and we have started to discuss snowmen!

We are singing traditional carols, starting with two popular ones: Frosty the Snowman and Jingle Bells.  Here are some links to listen at home.


Playing in the snow

To close out Term 1, the yellow class has been playing in imaginary snow!  We sang a song about snowflakes falling all around-on our heads, noses, and toes.  Every time we sing, the song gets a littel better as now most of the children can sing the appropriate body part at the correct time!  We have read several books about snowmen, and talked about winter clothing.  Each student even made their own snowman–below are some photos of the process and result!  We also watched the winter classic, Raymond Briggs ¨The Snowman» and discussed the adventures of the snowman and the boy!  And finally, we reviewed all of the vocabulary from this term using flashcards.

Para terminar el primer trimestre, la clase amarilla ha estado jugando en la nieve (¡aunque imaginario!) Hemos cantado sobre los copitos de nieve, y como nos cae encima de las cabezas, las narices, y los dedos de los pies.  Cada vez mas, cantamos mejor ya que la mayoria de los niños y niñas pueden decir la palabra del parte del cuerpo correctamente en el momento correcto.  Tambien leimos varios libros sobre los muñecos de nieve (a snowman) y hemos hablado de la ropa que nos ponemos en invierno.  Cada alumno/a hicieron su propio «snowman» – aqui pongo fotos del proceso y resultado de los agradables hombrecitos.  Tambien vimos el classico de Raymond Briggs «The Snowman» y hablamos de las adventuras del muñeco de nieve y del niño.  Y por ultimo, revisamos todo el vocabulario que hemos aprendido este  primer trimestre.
