This week at co-op we learned about China again and reviewed our memory verses in preparation for our recording session next week! Ms. K brought some beautiful items to display from her time in China.
Ms. K then demonstrated a proper Chinese tea ceremony in which the children were very happy to participate!They were great sports and even though the tea was stronger and more bitter than they were accustomed to they were enthusiastic to learn.They followed the tea ceremony with a lesson on Chinese New Year and created a lantern book full of facts about China.
Ms. K also had a great pictograph lesson using the Chinese Zodiac. She had each grade 2 student say the year they were born then come and place the appropriate symbol on the graph. The kids immediately saw the utility of a graphic organizer for it’s ability to show information. After co-op we had our final day of sports camp. We were so thankful to finally have a sunny day!They played a version of capture the flag trying to capture soccer balls from the opposing team’s net and get them back to their own net. They loved it! And at the end of the day there was a certificate and freezies for everybody!!We love our co-op group and look forward to each week’s adventures. What is the highlight of your week?
