This was the last theme of the year, and what a fun one! Look at all the crafts we made:
This patterned tree is so cheerful! The learners had to cut strips of paper, working on their scissors skills. I helped to cut their trees by folding the white paper in half first. They glued the strips at the back, over the cut tree, in a pattern. Afterwards they drew some pictures to complete the picture.
Although it does not snow here by us during Christmas time, we talked about Christmas in other countries, and the snow they experience. We made these snowmen by mixing shaving cream and glue. The kids painted it with their fingers, providing a lovely sensory experience. They added the rest of the materials to complete the picture.
And lastly, this simple science experiment stemmed from reading the story: The Thirsty Crow. I demonstrated how the crow got little bit of water out of a bottle by adding rocks to the bottle, letting the water rise up, called displacement. The kids were amazed!
And that is a wrap folks! My time at the school ends here too. Next year I will be working as a remedial therapist, and you could expect more learning activities, specifically focussed on students with learning difficulties, on the blog! Thanks for reading along! If you did miss some of our awesome themes, you could >
