VIIKKOKIRJE – WEEKLY LETTER 8/2021

Minit / Minis

Helmikuun viimeinen viikko lähti käyntiin Mineillä vapaalla leikillä, ja lapset saivat valita mitä leikkivät. Moni viihtyi tuttuun tapaan kotileikissä ja osa puolestaan rakennusleikeissä. Keskellä viikkoa meillä oli muovailutuokio missä Minit keskittyneesti muovailivat mm. eläimiä, lumiukkoja ja pullia. Meillä oli talon oma musiikkituokio, jossa jokainen sai kurkistaa laulupussiin. Torstaina rakensimme yhteisvoimin temppuradan. Temppuradalla harjoittelimme heittoa, tasapainoilua, ryömintää ja oman vuoron odottamista. Perjantaina lumileikkien jälkeen rauhoituimme kuuntelemaan satua.

The week has started with fun outdoor games right after the weekend, as well as snow activities together. On Tuesday we had the weekly viskari session where five years old had practiced writing the number 4 and had learnt a new shape, heart, both in English and Finnish language. Meanwhile, four years old had a nice language practice about coming up with a group story through Moomin cubes. It is a bit challenging to talk in front to the others, but a good practice too! On Wednesday we had a fantastic talent show where our duckies had the opportunity to demonstrate what they are good at & they put in practice their own creativity and talents, such as telling jokes, catching up a ball without losing it, dancing, or doing some pirouettes. Each kid had the microphone to introduce themselves & we all also practiced about being in silence during the performance, giving support and recognizing their effort. On Thursday we had a nice story time in English about feeling mad, actions and consequences & we had a useful chat about that with our own experiences and thoughts. Finally, the week has finished with a Finnish activity to get to know about Kalevala and celebrate that day together.
