Welcome from your DAA Elementary School Senior Leadership Team
Dear Elementary Families,
upcoming dates of importance
KG1 lg learning
KG2 FP Learning
The children have shown a lot of enthusiasm to come to school, ready to learn and explore. During the literacy lessons, we have been reviewing different letter sounds. We did several activities in person and some on Clever touch board. The children used their skills to cut pictures and associate them with the letter sounds. We read several books and enjoyed listening to Supertato, Mouse Shapes, and Elmer-the patchwork Elephant.
It was the International Dot Day on September 15, and the children used their creativity to color their own ‘dot’ after reading the story. “The Dot” has inspired millions of children and adults. It is used by teachers as a method to encourage creativity and instill confidence in students.
For applied sciences, children watched a video about the importance of washing hands on Brainpop Jr., and followed up with a fun math germs cutting activity.
During numeracy lessons, the children have been inquiring and learning about sorting. They also used manipulatives to enhance their number sense and counting skill. Children enjoyed playing the number Bingo game. 😊
