Krishna Kid of the Week
Great Self-Management Skills
It’s nearly here…we are practising our songs…Blue Skies, White Clouds and Lover of the Lord! Please let us know if your child is attending. We are performing at about 7:30 pm …so we want everyone ready and dressed by 7:00pm. See pics below for dressing-up ideas for gopis and cowherd boys!
Note: Children can wear devotional clothes on Tuesday to school if they wish. We will be decorating our classrooms and having lots of Janmastami centred activities throughout the day! Remember: Wednesday is a holiday!
Wednesday Afternoon – Free Choice Whole School Activities!
We love Wednesday afternoons! Lots of fun and educational activities happening in all classrooms!
Happy Birthday Aditya Panchal!
Aditya is officially 5 today and he bought some delicious and healthy treats to share with his classmates. Older sister Prachi came to help!
Watch out for these Non-Veg Ingredients when buying snacks for your Child…
Gelatin is a protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. It is usually obtained from cows or pigs. It can be found in some candies and jello products. Always read the label carefully.
Rennet – Found in some cheeses – go for non-rennet variety
Eggs – Yolks and Whites
Onions and Garlic – These are of course vegetarian and effective when used medicinally but they are not recommended for those on a spiritual path as they promote the mode of passion- not goodness.
Math – Why Jigsaw Puzzles are Great for Problem Solving
Each jigsaw requires us to use spatial awareness to fit things together and reconstruct a whole from the pieces. The skills of visualizing and mentally or physically rotating pieces and matching pattern and shape are key mathematical problem solving skills. Categorising and organizing pieces helps to teach a child how to work in a logical way. Jigsaw puzzles are available from toy libraries, public libraries, op shops and in toy departments. There are also many digital jigsaw puzzle sites online.
Great Buddy Learning Today! Thank-you Sita Rama Class!
Sita Rama Class come in every Thursday afternoon and our children get quality one on one learning. The children are all fully engaged and fully absorbed!
Show and Tell!
(for Wednesday’s homework) Children practise what they are going to say for Thursday.
Thursdays are for Show and Tell. Children love to share their special experiences and favourite things. This is great for oral language development. Here Saranasri tells us about the dinosaurs her dad bought back from Christchurch for her!
