THIS IS ME

This month will be very entertaining. We will have amusing activities where we will learn many new things.  We will learn about our bodies, which are the parts they are made of and each of their functions. We will study the 5 senses, smell, sight, touch, taste and hearing. We will do many experiments on this matter where we will learn how to identify our senses and how to intensify them. We will be able to identify what body part we utilize to perceive different stimuli and distinguish between those that are pleasant and those that are not.

We will see what characteristics each one of us processes;  eye color, hair color, weight, height, age and gender. We will realize that we are all different but that inside we are equal and have very large hearts that feel love towards our family and others. We will create a pretty book based on this.  We will see how we should take care of our body, our hygiene and our diet. We will also learn that it is important to respect our bodies as well as the bodies of others. It will help if you reinforce the lesson at home by asking me to name the parts of my body and asking me about their function. Also, please inform me that what I am eating is used as “fuel” for our bodies, like gasoline for cars and that if we eat healthy food we will have a lot of energy and we will feel good and healthy.

RHYME OF THE MONTH

I HAVE A LITTLE BODY

I have a little body (Point to self)

That belongs to me.

I have two ears to hear with (Point to ears)

And two eyes to see.  (Point to eyes)

I have a nose for smelling. (Point to nose)

I have a mouth to eat.  (Point to mouth)

I have two hands to wave

At everyone I meet!  (Wave Hands)

VALUE OF THE MONTH

PERSEVERANCE

Perseverance is being committed in your heart and persistent in your effort. You commit to your goals and overcome obstacles, no matter how long it takes. When the going gets rough and you figure out a way to hang in there and achieve your goals, you are showing perseverance.
