Week 8 Update (With 2 Interesting Visitors)
From the PEI administration, we send our heartfelt greetings to all our students, staff, parents, and communities – both local and international.
Once again, we thank the Almighty God for His protection and welcome you all to our weekly update at PAAJAF Educational Institute and the PAAJAF Foundation. Since we are in the 8th week of the academic term, this update covers both week 7 and week 8.
We are always pleased to share what goes on at PEI with you and welcome your thoughts and feedback as well. If you have any concerns, please share them with us. We would be happy to address them.
A Quick Recap of Week 7
The children in the Sunflower Class (aged 2 – 3 years) and the Morning Glory Class (aged 3 – 4 years) continued to practice writing lower case alphabets from ‘a’ to ‘w’ and forming two- and three-letter sounds with vowels ‘a’ and ‘e’ such as ‘as’, ‘an’, ‘am’, ‘me’, and ‘he’.
We also held an activity in movement exploration through which the children learnt how to dress according to their tribes’ customs. To read the full story, please visit this link.
Week 8 in Review
Last week, the children in the Sunflower Class (aged 2 – 3 years) were able to orally count numbers from 0 – 50, identify numbers from 0 – 20, and write numbers from 0 – 12.
The Morning Glory Class (aged 3 – 4 years) practiced writing lower case alphabets from ‘w’ to ‘z’ last week. Since they practiced writing from ‘a’ to ‘w’ the week before, they have completed writing lower case alphabets from ‘a’ to ‘z’ during the last two weeks (18th February to 1st March, 2019). Now, they have started to combine both upper and lower case letters such as: ‘Aa’, ‘Bb’, ‘Cc’, etc.
Our teachers, Miss Sandra Amu and Miss Susana Amoakowa, also taught their respective nursery classes (Sunflower and Morning Glory) basic health routines (like brushing teeth and washing hands), colouring fruits and vegetables, and the many uses of plants.
The children from the kindergarten classes, Pansy and Carnation (aged 4 – 6 years), read 3- to 6-letter word sentences and practiced the phonic sounds ‘wh’ and ‘er’ during their language activities. During their activities in mathematics, environment, creative art, and religious and moral studies, the children learnt about shapes, domestic animals, keeping our environment clean, stitching, and clay modelling.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK – A Visit from Health Personnel
