Posted by msmartaPS1 | Posted in Arts & Crafts, Parent-Teacher, School goals, Social studies, Welcome, Zoo-phonics | Posted on March 18, 2016

This is the first of a series 0f 10 team building activities we’ve planned for this term. In the first activity our preschoolers work in pairs to complete Zoo-phonics’ Timmy Tiger Jigsaw Puzzle  –

Our goal with this series of team building activities: The skills learned from team building are important parts of personal and group development in children. During team building activities, children have the chance to communicate with each other and work towards a common goal. By practicing being an effective team member and team leader, children develop confidence in their own abilities.

We hope you enjoy these pictures taken during the activity. Please, don’t forget to share your comments, ideas, suggestions, thumbs up… !!! 🙂        PS1 @ EWIS wishes you all a happy weekend 😉

HAPPY  YEAR OF THE MONKEY!!!

2016, CHINESE NEW YEAR 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

After our Chinese New Year Holiday, we’ve come back full of energy and creativity! The Chinese Zodiac theme has been a great way to end and review our Animals Unit. Our students have enjoyed making monkey crafts representing the year of the monkey! We hope you enjoy this picture of our crafts and a brief introduction to the year of the monkey and to your child’s Chinese Zodiac Sign… We have a wonderful mix of rabbit and dragon children in our class! Each with their own personality, but sharing some of these common traits. 

blog3PS1 MONKEY CRAFTS 

Monkey is the ninth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac. The Years of the Monkey include 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028…

THE MONKEY’S PERSONALITY

Monkey years draw their nature from the animal of the year. The Monkey is an intelligent, witty, and inventive animal. They are problem solvers, working with their group while simultaneously demonstrating an independence associated with achievers. The nimble monkey is playful, youthful in nature, and is a joy to watch as they move from activity to activity.

OUR STUDENTS’ CHINESE ZODIAC SIGNS

WE HAVE FRIENDLY RABBITS AND INDEPENDENT DRAGONS IN OUR PS1 CLASS! 

YEAR 2011: YEAR OF THE RABBIT 

Occupying the 4th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Rabbit symbolizes such character traits as creativity, compassion, and sensitivity. Rabbits are friendly, outgoing and prefer the company of others. They also prefer to avoid conflict. In confrontational situations, Rabbits approach calmly and with consideration for the other party. Rabbits believe strongly in friends and family.

YEAR 2012: YEAR OF THE DRAGON

Occupying the 5th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Dragon is the mightiest of the signs. Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion.
