This week we continued working with the solar system. We were working with the planets/planetas and moon/luna. The kids have been introduced to the phases of the moon. We talked about when we look into the sky, the moon does not always look the same. I explained to them that the moon is always the same shape round/redonda. The moon does not have light of itsown and we can only see the moon by the light of the sun. We talked about how sometimes the light from the sun cannot reach the whole moon and we can only see part of it. So, sometimes the moon looks like a circle, sometimes it look like half a circle and most of the time it looks like a funny section of a circle. We also talked about how every month we are able to see at least one full moon.
Also, they learned that our moon rotates around our earth once each day. They also learned that a rocket takes three days to get to the moon; children did activities like painting the Moon using tempera and glitter to decorate it.
They also did a science project where they showed that the moon has craters. Also, the children made activities for the celebration of the Valentine’s Day, as recognition of the letters of their name forming a worm of hearts.
This week we learned all about the letter Vv/ letra Vv. Be sure to point o
ut the letter that we practice when you are reading. The English letter V, can be pronounced as (vi). While the Spanish pronunciation is; V (ve, sounds like b). Some examples:
This week we went over numbers 1-10/números del uno al diez. Children did different classroom activities, such as recognizing of the numbers and quantity with hearts. They trace the numbers in the board.
